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.

“One of the best new live bands in the country, it’s a matter of time before they explode onto the big stages” This Feeling
There’s something about this type of music that feels raw, Southern, and whiskey-soaked. I can’t get enough Indie Shuffle.
The arrangement of James Tranter’s dominant, layered guitar work, Danny Core’s strong and unique vocals, Luke Davis’s muddy harmonic bass playing and James Dudley’s drumming groove are the framework of a band that’s enchanting and irresistible.

In a time of over-production and over complication, Fenne Lily brings a rawness and open honesty to the equation which is both refreshing and compelling in equal measure.
Fenne wrote and recorded the material that would form her debut album ‘On Hold’ between the ages of 15 and 20, while touring the continent with and lending her dulcet tones to the releases of rising alt-stars such as Aldous Harding, Charlie Cunningham, and Marlon Williams. Leaving school to spend her formative teenage years on the road, Fenne walked an uncertain path, playing truant from art college to immerse herself in a life of self-taught musicianship.
The result is a tapestry of heartache and comprehension, realised in record form with the help of friend and musical ally Tamu Massif, members of Champs and legendary producer John Parish. The latter helped add permanence to ‘Brother’, a song written in a drunken black-out and nearly lost to the ether, devoted to the one boy who’s never let her down. This intimacy in the album has resonated strongly with the global online community and has received over 100 million streams, despite being self-released.
This event has been rescheduled from Monday 18th May 2020. All tickets remain valid.
One thing you won’t be able to avoid on Bambara’s Stray is death. It’s everywhere and inescapable, abstract and personified perhaps the key to the whole record. Death, however, won’t be the first thing that strikes you about the group’s fourth and greatest album to date. That instead will be its pulverising soundscape; by turns, vast, atmospheric, cool, broiling and at times on stand out tracks like Sing Me To The Street and Serafina simply overwhelming.

Current single “Grand National” sits on the new EP alongside their late-2020 release, “Popshop!”, and two previously unheard songs “Crass” and “Slow Burner”.
“Popshop!” was greeted brilliantly by industry. It landed on the BBC 6Music playlist, and top publications included the band in their tips for 2021 lists soon after its release. NME 100, DIY Hype List 2021, Daily Star Ones To Watch 2021 and DIY Hello 2021. The four-piece only formed in 2018 so they’re hitting these milestones really early on.
The band’s first ever singles (“Not Yr Man” and “Football”) were self-released and caused a stir on the vibrant Liverpool indie scene. Nice Swan Records responded to the buzz by signing them for their third single (“David Byrne’s Badside”), and for the upcoming EP.
Courting follow in the footsteps of Sports Team and Pip Blom by putting out an EP through Nice Swan Records. The label is a small operation but blossoming thanks to its track record in breaking bands. And the odds are the label will continue its run of spotting top talent early with Courting well and truly on track to gate-crash the mainstream.
