Green Mind presents DREAM WIFE *rescheduled to 2nd April 2022*

This event has been rescheduled to Saturday 2nd April 2022. All tickets remain valid.

Dream Wife started out as a fantasy… literally. Icelandic singer Rakel and British musicians Alice and Bella played their first show as part of a performance project at art school in Brighton. Stuck in dreams of 90s club kid nostalgia they continue on making music, embracing their love for edgy pop. Dream Wife name David Lynch’s women as a big influence; ‘powerful and seriously f***ed up’.

They play with the aesthetics of the 1960’s yé-yé girls movement, along with current influences such as Sleigh Bells, Le Tigre and Grimes. Dream Wife ooze with girl power; infecting the crowd with their trademark ‘poolside pop with a bite.’ The music juxtaposes simple pop hooks, beats, cutting riffs and dreamy vocals.

Green Mind presents BILLIE MARTEN

Green Mind presents BILLIE MARTEN

Billie – born Isabella Sophie Tweddle – got her early start in music thanks to parents who surrounded her with the music of Nick Drake, John Martyn, Joni Mitchell, Joan Armatrading, Kate Bush, Loudon Wainwright III and northern folk artist Chris Wood (who once told a nine-year-old Billie to “go for it!”). The family lived in the pastoral rolling hills of Ripon, North Yorkshire, where Billie grew up in and around the Dales. “I feel a lot of emotion [in nature],” she says. “Like this extreme form of empathy. I find it a very comforting blanket. It cradles you, it’s always there. It’s not going away.”

Built on the minimalist acoustic folk she made a name for herself with, Billie Marten?s breath-taking new record Flora Fauna is a mature, embodied collection of songs fostered around a backbone of bass and rhythm. “When I was younger, I was quite trepidatious in my songwriting,” she reflects, while sitting in the winter sunshine in her adopted home of East London. “I concealed myself in my music. Now, I’ve gained more personal strength than I had before, I was so obsessed with what people thought of me then. Over time, you learn to care a bit less ? and you start writing about the things that really matter.”

Green Mind presents OCTOBER DRIFT *new date*

This event has been rescheduled from Thursday 1st April 2021. All tickets remain valid.

An immersive wall of distortion envelopes the powerful fragility of frontman Kiran Roy’s vocals, while he paints a verbal landscape of introspection, despair and hope amid a sonic palette that evokes both the driving, spacious absorptivity of My Bloody Valentine and the poetic, visceral honesty of Nick Cave’s lyricism.

Egyptian Blue make music that is uncompromising yet uplifting. They channel modern anxieties and nervous energy into razor sharp guitar lines and post-punk grooves. Crafted originally above a jeweller’s shop in Colchester, the band then decamped to Brighton (UK) to develop their sound. Egyptian Blue are signed to Yala! Records.

Green Mind presents COACH PARTY
Oct 14 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Green Mind presents COACH PARTY

Coach Party grew up on the Isle of Wight (“it’s only a matter of time until you meet pretty much everyone else on the Island,” says Eastwood) and eventually crossed paths as avid music fans – working in venues, playing together and meeting at the same gigs. Coach Party eventually formed after Eastwood and guitarist Steph Norris decided to start playing music together; quickly realising that there was something special about the pair’s songwriting and bond, guitarist Joe Perry and drummer Page joined the ranks. Musically, Coach Party are inspired by a broad palate of artists, but always find themselves drawn back to Nirvana, Sonic Youth and The Strokes, and contemporary artists like Wolf Alice, The Big Moon and Tame Impala. Ultimately though, Coach Party?s primary drive to write and perform music comes from “the often entertaining struggle of real life.”

The band still live and work on the Isle of Wight (Jess at a farm park, Guy in a music studio and Steph and Joe in cafes), and describe life on the island as going “through pretty distinct phases of being a great, and a really
frustrating place to live.” The opening of new venue Strings two years ago has raised the energy of live music in the area and provided the impetus for Coach Party?s breakout first offering ‘Oh, Lola’ in 2019.

The band’s debut 6-track Party Food EP sparked their increasingly exciting association with Chess Club – a label famed for breaking new talent, where recent exciting signings include Alfie Templeman and Phoebe Green, and past successes include Jungle and Wolf Alice. Upon the EP’s release, Coach Party found themselves subject to acclaim all over UK radio with fans, including BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, Clara Amfo, Jack Saunders and Huw Stephens (single ‘Bleach’ was even added to the station’s playlist as Introducing Track Of The Week), BBC Radio 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq, Radio X’s John Kennedy, and more.

Green Mind presents POZI

Green Mind presents POZI

POZI come steeped in the lineage of the very best weirdo British indie pop. The trio of drummer/vocalist Burroughs, violinist/vocalist Rosa Brook and bassist/vocalist Tom Jones have a skittish, restless energy.

Despite drawing on influences such as Devo, Wire and Television, there are no guitars in POZI and the space afforded by the lack of this potentially domineering component is refreshing. Instead, there’s Brook’s violin that by turn swells and stresses, either buoying proceedings along or collapsing them into discord. Jones’ rough, scruffy basslines hold each song tightly together as all great bassists should do. Then there’s Burroughs’ sparsely-filled but frantically driven rhythmic repetition and his capital city yelp, words tumbling out as though desperately trying to get out of the way of the ones behind.
