Talk Show

Hailed as one of the UK’s most exciting new bands, Talk Show’s internationally lauded debut EP, These People, arrived in March of 2020, and by the time the pandemic had subsided enough for them to tour the collection properly, the group had already begun to move on creatively, trading in the brash post-punk of their early work for a ferocious, guitar-driven vision of dance music that would help earn them festival slots everywhere from Pitchfork Avant-Garde to Sonic Wave in addition to a four-star review from the NME for their 2022 follow-up EP, Touch The Ground.

Effigy, Talk Show’s debut album, offers up a bold and exhilarating showcase for the band’s dramatic evolution, drawing on everything from The Chemical Brothers and The Prodigy to Nine Inch Nails and KLF as it taps into a raw, primal sound at the intersection of techno, electronic, industrial, and rock music.

Car Park

With Scottie on bass and vocals, Hattie on guitar, and Loda on drums, Carpark are a dynamic three-piece alt/pop band that weave nostalgia, power, and infectious melodies together to create a sound that transports you straight into a coming of age movie.

The band’s childhoods were soundtracked by the rebellious anthems of pop/punk legends such as Paramore and Blink 182, whose influence has crashed its way into the mix. Following in their footsteps, Carpark are an impressively powerful and dynamic live act.

They have been on the road with The Libertines, Lauren Hibberd, Beth McCarthy and Kelsy Karter as well as making their own waves with a UK Headline tour. As a newly signed band Carpark are making a name for themselves, driven by a desire to inspire the next generation and challenge the status quo. Their sophomore E.P 'Born To Be Average' is OUT NOW through Saviour Music Group.

False Futures

False Futures are a four piece guitar band from London, England. The band (Mathew Conner, Isaac Griffiths, Jamie Welfare & Jamie Dean) are from all corners of the UK & met on London's underground circuit. The project, initially dubbed ‘false futures tapes’, began as a solo recording project by singer & guitar player Mathew at the end of 2021.

The initial inspiration for the project was to draw on influences from 90’s & 00’s guitar music. The band repurpose sonic textures from the past and marry them with subject matters and aesthetics of the modern day. With the good fortune of their meeting, the songs were fully realised together & collectively, they settled with the name False Futures. The band finished tracking their debut record ‘However’ at the end of 2023.
