Couples are a five-piece alt-rock band from London. Drawing on inspiration from Pulp, Mystery Jets and The Clash, the band‘s sound flits effortlessly from punk, to heavy rock, to commercial pop.
Having spent the last three years writing, developing their sound and broadening their live experience, the band have picked up various accolades, such as being named as one of The Roundhouse’s Emerging Artists for 2017, which led to them performing at Frank Turner’s ‘One Fest’, being featured on a Christmas special of NTV’s ‘Music’n’Adda’ and performance slots at The Alternative Escape and Shindignation.
We are an indie/punk band from South London, with influences from the likes of, The Kooks, Slaves, The Wombats, Arctic Monkeys and more…
London based Singer Songwriter James Numbere is a soul-pop artist with music that draws influences from r&b,reggae, world and African music.
A human physiologist who quit his job to pursue a career in music, James has over the past 2 years released 4 singles with massive support from BBC Introducing with Gary Crowley exclaiming “what a voice”!!! As part of the London Community Gospel choir, he has worked with Justin Timberlake, One Republic, Tom Jones, Gregory Potter, Beverly Knight and also performed at historic venues like the Royal Albert Hall.
Cactus? is a three-piece band from the industrial plains of Northern Italy.
In 2016 they released their debut EP “Sorry for My Accent” on their own label From da Cove, taking inspiration from the British Indie/Lo-Fi scene. The record was well-received by critics and it is led by the single “I Don’t Think It’s Good for You to Stop Smoking” which is eventually added to the Spotify playlist “Best of Indie” by Domino Records (Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand).
While their popularity keeps rising, they are contacted by Denver indie rapper Bodhi to co-produce “Amazing, Pt.1” an instant hit both on Youtube and Spotify: the video for the song gets viral helping the Spotify streams reaching500k.
The newest LP “No People Party” has been released this past February under the label Costello’s Records. The record sees the band moving to a more hand-crafted sound combining influences from the dance-punk phenomenon of mid-00s with the current Lo-fi Bedroom movement, adding to the mix 80s synths and samples.
Based in London, LEONTAS are a name associated with energetic, dynamic and loud performances on the local scene, with regular shows at the top venues in the Capital. Their music is a raw, sexy mix of heavy guitar riffs, melodic choruses and honest lyrics.
“Phenomenal anthems with heavy, infectious guitar riffs and pounding drums so loud they pulsate through your chest… It will be great to see them headlining their own tour in the future, which they so rightly deserve.” – Stencil Mag
“The duo can easily be compared to noisy rock duos such as Royal Blood and Blood Red Shoes but with a lot more hooks, more hooks in-fact than found in an abattoir.” – It’s All Indie
“An exciting, different sounding duo. I can’t wait to hear what’s next!”- Down The Front Media
