Club Drive + Idolising Nova + Idle Frets
MORE INFO • SOLD OUT
Hailed as Britain’s very own answer to the likes of One Republic, Maroon 5 or The Script, Club Drive’s latest single is an unapologetic slice of pure pop brilliance. Already making a name for themselves across social media and with a fast-expanding – and very fervent – fanbase, the quartet have captured the interest of Radio 1’s BBC Introducing team where ‘Dangerous’ was featured across the Introducing network as ‘Track Of The Week’. Support comes from indie pop trio Idolising Nova and catchy indie rock band Idle Frets.
Watch the lyric video for ‘Dangerous’ below:
WEDNESDAY 22ND MARCH
Bath-based five-piece Bad Sounds‘ single ‘Avalanche’ was selected by BBC Radio 1 Annie Mac as her track of the week. Released in April 2016, the single was co-produced by Duncan Mills (Peace/Spector), fusing cheerful pop hooks, fuzzy guitar lines and an undeniably addictive chorus, bringing sounds of the 70′s and 80′s into the 90′s Brit-Pop era, with a twist. Support comes from Birmingham duo Social State whose songs are a mix of various genres including indie, hip-hop and pop.

THURSDAY 23RD MARCH
This is London’s greatest and most sensational rhythm’n’blues-punk band. And this is a band that truly represents London, being a mongrel mix of Caribbean, France, Japan and Spain. With a repertoire influenced by many of the great songs of the ’50s and ’60s made to sound fresh and new to modern ears, you won’t be able to help but move your feet when The Cumberland Three are blasting out of your speakers. Support comes from gritty rhythm & blues duo The Good Water and punk band Ideal Club.

Liverpool’s swaggering psychedelic outfit The Vryll Society have announced the release of their latest single ‘Sacred Flight’ via Deltasonic Records, kicking off what promises to be a very productive and exciting year culminating in the release of their widely anticipated debut album. The psych-pop quintet’s unique eclectic sound has already seen them heavily tipped by BBC Introducing and championed by the likes of Huw Stephens (Radio 1), Phil Taggart (Radio 1) and Steve Lamacq (BBC 6 Music). Support comes from Midlands indie five-piece Violet and psychedelic alternative band Grim Fiction.

SUNDAY 26TH MARCH
A fresh-faced, four-piece band emitting new music from the home they call Manchester. Reimaging the sound of the red-brick capital of the North with their uplifting and soulful brand of indie pop, Dantevilles are as sharp as they are raw. Clean, canny guitars and dual captivating vocals never compete for space in their unshakable, off-the-wall arrangements. Support comes from synth-punk duo Sacrifice & Bliss, rock and roll soul band The Mojo Filters and indie band Shoot The Town.
