BENSH - 10:15PM
Bench's release 'Clues', the debut album from this self-styled noisepop cosmopolitan band and the sum of a six year expedition to some of the most ecclectic places in pop. From the Austrian Alps to the United Kingdom, from Japan to Germany to Iceland and back to Europe.
FRENCH WIVES - 9:30PM
French Wives are a Glasgow based quintet who specialise in making melodic and intelligent yet accessible indie-pop music. Their debut album "Dream of the Inbetween" is released on May 7th through Electric Honey Records.
HALF MOON RUN - 8:30PM
Half Moon Run are a talented young trio based in Montreal, Canada. Aged 21-25 years old, but armed with solid training and raw talent, they combine varied musical backgrounds, often trading instruments and multi-tasking to great effect. Folky three-part harmonies hold down moody, psychedelic arrangements and electronic-infused soundscapes; creating a unique sound, fusing the restless elements of indie, pop and folk with beautiful rhythmic harmonies, delicate guitar lines and a hint of warm electronica.
