Mercury-nominated The Big Moon head up a night of some of the most youthful, creative and downright enjoyable artists to emerge from the current British music scene.
"The indie crew [The Big Moon] win on almost every front: they write material you can sing along to, they show a thorough awareness of dynamics’ power, their guitar lines are a delight, and they’re really, really funny." - NME
The Big Moon
London four-piece The Big Moon formed in the way that any great band should. “I didn’t just want to start a band, I really, genuinely needed to,” says singer Juliette Jackson. “I was working in a fancy cocktail bar in North London where they made stupid drinks flavoured with soil and tomato skins. I had to get out of there. So I started writing songs about love and hangovers, robots and the fourth dimension, ran around London asking everyone I knew if they knew anyone who wanted to be in a band with me.”
One of the bands leading the way in the new vibrant indie scene that emerged around The Brixton Windmill, with a self-released single 'Eureka' catapulting them to national recognition and tours with The Maccabees, The Vaccines and Ezra Furman. Their instant-hit of an album 'Love In The 4th Dimension’ was released in 2017, earning them a highly deserved Mercury nomination.
They have developed a gilt-edged reputation for seamlessly blending driving grunge and anthemic pop into one fun-filled and personality packed live show.
The Big Moon will debut new material from their eagerly awaited new EP - due out end of May.
Poppy Hankin, Iris McConnell and Sophie Moss make fuzzy indie-pop; influenced by bands that include Neutral Milk Hotel, Pavement and Cate Le Bon. Girl Ray sound instantly familiar and completely lovable. Signed to acclaimed London indie label, Moshi Moshi, they draw on the experiences of their youth creating songs that channel the emotions of young adulthood with songs such as 'The Way We Came Back' written by Poppy Hankin when she was just 16.
Following in the footsteps of the UK's rich counterculture of performance poets, Georgie Jesson's verse has won her praise on the music scene, sharing the stage with, and accompanied by her brother Chilli Jesson (Parma Violets / Crewel Intentions).
A vocal collective consisting of Isobel Risk, Ella Rimmer, Lara Laeverenz and Alice Barlow. New to the London music scene and making immediate waves. "Woom, a quartet of vocalists - over sweet seventh-chords, angelic cadences cascade over one another, each individual voice still asserting its identity from amidst the lush harmonies” - Loose Lips Music Blog
