ESTRONS+ BOY AZOOGA + HIGH KNUCKS

Rising Welsh alt. rock band Estrons have unveiled the brand new video for latest single ‘Strobe Lights’. Shot in one take at the band’s own rehearsal space in Cardiff – the video nods to the caustic track content: a reflection of jealousy and personal conflict.

In the short time the band have been performing, Estrons have achieved an immense amount off their own back, recently playing two fiery live shows at Brighton’s Bleach and Green Door Store for The Great Escape Festival. In 2016 alone, the band played dates at major festivals including Latitude and SXSW, racked up hundreds of thousands of Spotify streams and received incredible support at radio with ‘I’m Not Your Girl’, with repeated plays from the likes of Huw Stephens, Phil Taggart and Annie Mac at BBC Radio 1, as well reaching the playlists of Beats 1 and Radio X. Estrons were recently tipped by The Guardian as one of the best new independent artists in their ‘Future 50’ feature.

Estrons music is as melodic as it is hard-hitting, with each track containing cutting lyrical observations from singer Talisyn Källström. Honest and forthright, Tali’s lyrics are served with bite and a knowing, sardonic humor, while their blend of razor sharp post-punk with high-octane alt. rock has seen them earn plaudits from the likes Noisey, NME, Guardian and DIY.

Plus support from BOY AZOOGA

Having supported the likes of Blanaevon, Cardiff band Boy Azooga have a deliciously infectious psychadelic pop sound; a wow of woozy drumbeats and slacker pop.

Plus support from HIGH KNUCKS

High Knucks distinctive style of fast and loud indie-punk was born in Coventry, UK, in late 2016. Bassist Rev Taylor brought on board guitarists Sean Hands and Alan Ferguson, drummer Rob Brown along with vocalist, and brother, T-bone Taylor.

The band came together quickly and the boys went straight into the studio to record a number of tracks. In between the studio and gigging they shot and released a video for their track, ‘Speed’. They’re now gigging as much as possible, throwing out their fast and loose punk rock’n’roll vibes; their influences include Dead Kennedys, The Cramps, Gallows, Plague Vendor, Joy Division, Against Me!, The Bronx, amongst  many others.
