Children of the State
Children of the State are a 4 piece peyote punk outfit based in Sheffield.
Their ominous name is derived from both what Kim Jong Un calls the people of North Korea and what the FBI dubbed the Manson Family in 1960’s Hollywood. Aptly named, their music provides a pulsing backbeat to the stark dystopian reality of modern British life.
Ejaculating onto the scene with their debut EP ‘Kill Your Darlings’, produced by Nathan Saoudi of the Fat White Family, engineered by Jack Howorth of Mysteron and mastered by Dean Honer of The Moonlandingz, the individual songs offer a wonderful and frightening glimpse into the world of the Children of the State, from the strung-out electronic psych trip of the title track ‘Kill Your Darlings’, the abrasive Damned inspired ‘Miss America’, the Celtic folk-waltz of ‘Tomorrow We’ll Drift’ and back down to planet earth with the apocalyptic slow jam of ‘The Afterglow’.
Step aboard the SPINNER train for an incredible experience of musical and lyrical artistry that is a feast for the senses.
As music connoisseurs, SPINNER states their ever-expanding musical influences as bands like The Who, The Doors, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Pink Floyd, Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses, The Verve, Cast, The La’s, Oasis, Kula Shaker, Ocean Colour Scene, Kasabian…. the list goes on and on…
Hailing from Kent, SPINNER was the brainchild of Sammie Harris and Ryan Sams, who found their bass player, James Greenhow, almost three years ago. They are a heady mix of all that’s good about live music, have a loyal following and their debut EP, entitled No. 1, is out now.
Since forming on a lonely Valentine’s Day in 2016, vibrant indie/rock quartet Suncharmer have been building a solid reputation as an excitingly fresh live act, despite stumbling through their very first rehearsal with no cymbals or usable snare drum. Almost 2 years later, the band have developed an infectious, hard-hitting sound that pulses with sharp riffs and shimmering surf guitar.
Suncharmer have already ticked off some admirable achievements early on in their career, from playing fast-growing festivals such as The Vicar’s Picnic and Penn Fest, to supporting current indie/rock favourites The Magic Gang, Yak and INHEAVEN. Early 2018 saw the band nominated as one of twenty shortlisted in Northern Exposure & Musicians Against Homelessness competition to play Croatia’s IN Music Festival.
“Suncharmer are a no-frills indie group, whose songs are embellished with soulful vocals, giving their sound a three dimensional depth…” – Sounds Of An Eccentric.
Skinner’s Lane have been causing a storm in Merseyside with their charismatic garage rock style fused with elements of psychedelia, blues and even prog-rock. Hailing from totally different parts of the globe (California, Norway, England), it was the three’s keen interest in riff driven music such as Black Keys, Royal Blood and Franz Ferdinand that brought the group together.
“With the riff’s combined with the front man Zak’s energy, the place filled fast. Through the Canadian accent and the American humour, Zak and his band definitely set the bar high for acts to follow” – Purple Revolver.
“The cross contamination of indie and punk genres was electrifying and inspiring” – One Great Song.
“Featuring unforgettable guitar riffs and quick changes between the song’s direction” – Ellipsis Magazine.
Formerly performed and recorded under Deep Freud.
3-piece group active in London town.
