'Beautiful and gently bruised, a welcome rush of emotion' - Drowned in Sound
'At it's core, this is pop music of a rare assurance' - Mojo Magazine
The Swedish shoegaze trio Echo Ladies released their debut album 'Pink Noise' via Sonic Cathedral & Hybris and came just a few months after their self-titled EP, which received support from 6 Music, Radio 1, Beats 1, The Line of Best Fit and Clash.
The band quotes Cocteau Twins, Lowlife and the Jesus And Mary Chain as the most important musical influences on the album. 'Pink Noise' convey the feeling of nostalgia and hope for the future, mixed with worries and concerns about defining who you are and what you will be. This explains their blend of melancholy, euphoria, anger and soreness as well as a sense of emotional confusion.
Kid Kin is the solo project of Oxford multi-instrumentalist Peter Lloyd. In 2013 he released his debut album - a collection of home demos - which gained positive press and airplay on BBC 6 Music and BBC Introducing, with the latter selecting him to make his live debut at an annual showcase.
A string of shows followed, including support slots for Ulrich Schnauss, Public Service Broadcasting, El Ten Eleven, and Three Trapped Tigers, as Lloyd honed a one-man show of guitar, electronics and visuals.
Cody Noon are a Reading-based duo, crafting minimalist instrumental journeys from quiet menace to soaring emotion.
