EKKAH+ FAKE LAUGH + CHARTREUSE + FIELD HARMONICS DJ SET

Hotly-tipped Birmingham duo EKKAH have announced they will return to The Sunflower Lounge this spring, following a triumphant headline show back in January. The pair recently released their much-anticipated debut EP Last Chance To Dance in November via new label Year One Recordings (UK) and Honeymoon (US).

Last Chance To Dance EP presents three songs of modern dance-floor infatuation, united by intoxicating groove and emotive melody.The title track was produced by Adam Jaffrey in London, while the other two were self-produced by EKKAH in their home studio in Birmingham. From shimmering downtown exuberance (‘Last Chance To Dance’) to pulsating post-punk urgency (‘Holiday Blues’) to bittersweet bedroom boogie (‘Exchange’), it’s an invitation that even the most dance-floor averse will find hard to resist.

Plus support from FAKE LAUGH

“When he’s not playing in up-and-comers Lovepark, Kamran Khan performs as Fake Laugh. Recently, he put out his latest EP under that moniker, Freely, via Violent Tapes, the label run by Khan and his Lovepark bandmate George Williams. ‘As I Get To Know You Better’ is one of the six-track record’s highlights, a smooth, pastel-hued piece of dreamy pop that could nestle into the soundtrack of James Franco’s Palo Alto movie with ease” – NME

Having recently been featured in BrumNotes ‘Top Tips for 2015′, the Birmingham four piece are in for big things. Their music can be described as a mix of laid-back indie that meets soul-pop, altogether creating a Californian-inspired sound.

Plus FIELD HARMONICS (DJ SET)

Field Harmonics is the project of Midlands-based multi-instrumentalist Robert Glover, who is also one half of ambient pop experimentalists Epic45 and co-founder of the Wayside and Woodland record label, working alongside 18 year old vocalist Bryony Williams. The music occupies the place where the Pet Shop Boys, Depeche Mode and Boards Of Canada meet, reflecting a love for the pop music of his childhood and the mysterious electronica that emerged throughout the 90s.
