BRIDGES+ WREST

BRIDGES have built up a loyal following over the years, having performed at numerous prestigious festivals such as Leeds, Glastonbury, 2000 Trees and Isle of Wight to name a few. They have also supported the likes of The Slow Readers Club, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Airways and All Tvvins. BRIDGES have received praise from numerous well­ regarded publications including Clash, Gigslutz and Its All Indie.

Frontman Ethan Proctor’s warm, emotive vocals are at the forefront from the offset, reminiscent of the likes of Frightened Rabbit’s Scott Hutchison or The National’s Matt Berninger. Huge guitar hooks pulsate over tightly woven harmonies, creating a sound that is both gritty yet visceral. BRIDGES combine poetic lyricism with anthemic soundscapes, making something undeniably refined in the process.

The band are self ­releasing their 2nd EP in Spring 2020, touring across Ireland and the UK.

Wrest is a Scottish indie band, making music from Edinburgh’s Old Town. The sound combines soaring guitars with layered lyrics and heartfelt melodies, reminiscent of bands like Frightened Rabbit, The National, Idlewild, Snow Patrol and We Were Promised Jetpacks.

Building on previous critically-acclaimed projects, wrest was reborn in 2018 with the launch of debut single ‘Adventurers’, quickly building a strong local live following. Two more singles followed, with ‘Hope Springs’ and ‘Human’, the lead single from debut album ‘Coward of Us All’ (BBC Radio Rapal Album of the Week).

Since the album launch, wrest have toured across Scotland and beyond, with a run of sell-out headline shows.

‘Coward of Us All’ was launched in May 2019 and released on limited edition first press 12″ vinyl in September 2019 – wrest.band/album.
