AS MAMAS – EP LAUNCHLYCIO + CALLUM KERRIGAN

Formed just over two years ago, As Mamas are a two piece psych band consisting of Harrison Baird-Whitman on guitar and vocals and Joe Devine on drums. Influenced by the roots of rock n roll and the waves of 60s psychedelia the duo create a raw blend of classic garage psych with the occasional drop of blues to soak your sorrows.

After writing and recording their debut EP in Harrison’s caravan back in 2016 the band went into the studio in January 2017 to record their second, capturing the chaos of a liquid light show through battering percussion and swollen guitar tones.

They’ll perform this EP in its entirety along with brand new tunes.

Plus support from LYCIO

Lycio are a contemporary 3-piece bringing a uniquely authentic take on electronic/hybrid music. Having started in 2016, the band have supported notable acts such as Yonaka, Gurr, Low Island and Stevie Parker on their headline tours. Live highlights have also included Chris Evans’ Carfest for BBC Children in Need (making it into the highlights section of the festival program), Project Soundlounge at Birmingham Town Hall, and an exclusive in store Selfridges ‘Live + Loud’ session.

Out of Birmingham, Lycio combine 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 stock loops. Hybrid music with that essential human feel.

“Kerrigan certainly does have a handy way with a tune, and the lo-fi thrums that dictate ‘Giving Up’ display a maturity and wisdom way beyond his years.” – Brum Notes

“With it’s intimate feel and haunting echoes, ‘Giving Up’ feels more like a series of diary entries set to music rather than actual songs, but that’s what gives Kerrigan a winning edge” – Louder Than War
