Lancaster trio TV FACE have honed a fun, raw and funky post-rock sound with touches of psych and punk influences who, in their words, “make songs out of being in a room making noise.”
Brand new Brighton band Amongst Liars have mastered that special art of blockbusting riffs, powerful vocals and engaging, melodic choruses that have you instantly hooked.
If, like us, you never grew out of your emo phase then you’re very much in luck with exciting Yorkshire band Realms. The quintet have honed a sound that transports us to the good old post-hardcore and emo days of the early 2000s or, as they put it, “music for people who never grew out of their emo phase.”

Oxfordshire newcomers Severed Tongues have honed a delicious modern metal sound that’s somehow exceedingly dark and dramatic, yet also positive and catchy.
Newcastle band Pave The Jungle have honed an intriguing, unusual sound that walks the tightrope between chaos and melody. The band fuse the engaging elements of US indie-rock and the noisiness of post-punk with the power of alternative rock.
