Heavy Pop presents...
'Tasty, fuzzy goodness' - Tom Robinson
'The best thing around at the moment' - Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales
Bristol-based, Alt-Rock 4 piece, No Violet, powerfully retain your attention with their enthralling performances of their idiosyncratic blend of fuzz-infused grunge/alt rock and semi-contorted math rock. Ellie (vox), Pete (drums), Rhys (guitar) and Kerry (bass) captivate their audience through a manipulating dynamic range that echoes early Pixies with an added split personality disorder. The release of single ‘Be My Friend’ in June saw them feature regularly on BBC Intro radio play ahead of upcoming debut EP, Faces, released on September 14th, 2018 via Leisure Records.
'With a whole lot of love from DIY, BBC Introducing and The Independent, No Violet are setting themselves up for a stonking few years ahead' - PRS Magazine
'Much promise me thinks' - Jo Wiley
Flashfires blend infectious melodies and energetic live performances, and have supported the likes of Catfish and the Bottlemen, Ash and The Subways on tour.
Heavy Pop: Drop it like it's Pop
Friends from school, Flashfires began making waves in and around the London music scene, playing shows with established acts like The Hoosiers, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Ash, The Rifles, FLYTE, The Subways & JUDAS.
They received radio airplay on both of the UK's biggest stations, BBC Radio 1 and Radio 2, for their songs Manshark and Shy. Their single Shy lead Radio 2 DJ Jo Whiley to comment 'Much promise me thinks', attracting attention from Linda Serk from who invited them to an interview on BBC Introducing.
Multiple trips to Sacramento, California at J Street Recorders Studio has taught them new songwriting skills and saw them record over two albums of songs.
Legendary Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page previously accepted an invitation to watch Flashfires at London’s Water Rats, later offering advice to the band giving them that spark for the future.
