HIDDEN CHARMS+ THE BAY RAYS + THE LIZARDS
South London based band Hidden Charms return with their intoxicating new single ‘I Just Wanna Be Left Alone’, and new EP Harder From Here released 28th October via Deltasonic Records.
Mounting a strong case for the title of UK’s most exciting guitar band, the four-piece carefully hint at the psych-tinged, effervescent indie rock of their previous releases, but ‘I Just Wanna Be Left Alone’ is the sound of a band moving forward. Delivering propulsive, urgent rock n’ roll both on record and in their fierce live performances, the quartet have carved out something totally unique – the secret of which lies in their powerful bond as musicians, their youthful energy, and their tireless search for new ways to create the music they love.
Hidden Charms have gained a fierce reputation for their live shows with support slots for Benjamin Booker, Hanni El Khatib, X Ambassadors and YAK over the last 18 months alongside a co-headine tour with The Vryll Society. Having received widespread airplay from the likes of Zane Lowe (Beats 1), Annie Mac (Radio 1) and Huw Stephens (Radio 1), the new single looks set to propel them even further into the limelight.

Plus support from THE BAY RAYS
Made up from three members in their mid-twenties, The Bay Rays have been playing together in various outfits since their early teenage years, when they met at school in Kent. Now after touring with Estrons and Slaves in the sort of cramped, drenched venues that were once frequented by luminaries like The Strokes and Kings of Leon, and headlining the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury, The Bay Rays are on their way to releasing their debut EP Satisfaction.
“‘Aphelion’ is the first taste from the band’s upcoming EP Satisfaction and is one that firmly cements them as one of Britain’s most up and coming bands” - Noisey
“With them, it’s all or nothing. So live sets consist of blood, sweat, and tears – preferably their own, but occasionally other people’s” – CLASH

Plus support from THE LIZARDS
2016 saw psychedelic pop band The Lizards support the likes of The Cult Doom of Dom Keller, Yuck, Sunflower Bean and Holy Wave, as well as making an appearance at Dot to Dot Festival.
