Only Shadows placed their first track online just over 12 months ago, unsure of what to expect. Fast forward and the Nuneaton group have exceeded their most lofty ambitions, supporting their heroes and notching up more than 400,000 Spotify plays.

Locked away with producer Bruce Rintoul, the band have been gradually forging new material, songs that will take them in new directions.

‘Fight Milk’ was the first glimpse of new music and it was released to critical acclaim, with Clash Music premiering the track and It’s All Indie making it their track of the week. BBC Introducing in the West Midlands even described it as a ‘banger’. The song title will be known to fans of the TV show Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia and even Glenn Howerton who plays Dennis in the show tweeted about the song.

Plus support from GLASS PEAKS

Having been founded just over a year ago, GLASS PEAKS are quickly earning themselves a reputation as one of the Southeast’s hottest new talents. Described as a band “DIY-ing themselves to the mainstream” (Metro), whilst garnering continuing support from BBC Radio 1, Absolute Radio, 6Music, BBC Introducing and many more.

The three-piece from Kent dive into the realm of self-proclaimed ‘melancholic alt-pop’, derived from influences such as Joy Division and The Smiths and resonating the sound of contemporaries like Ben Howard, Foals, The Maccabees and White Lies. Sonically the group pen beautifully unpredictable and dynamic songs – evocative lyrics are consumed by waves of moody, syncopated guitar licks, progressively erupting to a serendipitous full-scale wall-of-sound induced by pounding drums and driving bass lines.
