MOON SUGAR

Moon Sugar are a 5 piece rock n roll band from Birmingham.

Their use of a piano instead of a rhythm guitar gives their music a different dimension from your run of the mill indie band. Jon Williams’ loud and aggressive Guitars complemented by Singer Adee Shaws growling snarl echo the sounds of early oasis records.

BRAIN FOOD

Brain Food are an up and coming psych-soaked four piece from Birmingham. Despite having only formed in March and playing a few guerilla shows then, they have since shyed away from live performances, instead opting to write new material for an EP due out in late summer.

Expect ferocious drum beats and aggressive bass lines paired with hazy, spaced-out guitars and dark vocals. Their live show is exciting and both spits and sizzles in equal measure – not one to be missed.

First single ‘Two Crows’ was released in April and is a available now on Soundcloud.
