The Borgias are an indie/alt/dance sound from Birmingham. Taking influence from the likes of Primal Scream, Kasabian, Happy Mondays, The Charlatans, The Doors the band have crafted a sound sat loosely in modern indie but also with planted feelers navigating the soundscape elsewhere for inspiration.

The Borgias are KaYc Mundee on vocals, Jason Stretton on keyboard and Craig Black on guitars, giving a unique distorted sound.

Plus support from LYCIO

Out of Birmingham, Lycio are a contemporary 3-piece bringing a uniquely authentic take on electronic/hybrid music – combining distinctive vocals, real & electronic drums, alongside pad/synth textures. Despite their interest in sound design, Lycio ultimately prioritise the song – great songwriting, vocals & melody.

Everything is played 100% live; no backing tracks, no playback. Hybrid music with that essential human feel.

Their first release, ‘Air Part 1’, is available to stream now.

“A real yearning, heartfelt, urban flow of just emotions; beautiful beautiful track” – Jack Parker, BBC Introducing WM
