bdrmm was formed with Ryan's brother Jordan Smith and good friends Danny Hull, Luke Irvin & Joe Vickers. This 5-piece have been rapidly injecting a much-needed burst of summer freshness into the Hull music scene. Sounding like the perfect cocktail of synth pioneers Beach House, jangly slackers, DIIV, and otherworldly shoe-gazers Slowdive. This troop have been honing their sound to epic proportions ever since.
Quietly bubbling away under the radar, bdrmm have all but blown up over recent months with the release of their most recent singles 'Kare' and ‘The Way I Want’ gaining a slew of new admirers and acclaim from Clash Magazine & Dork amongst many more.

After several somewhat glorious outings to Brighton, L.A. PEACH is back! Stopping by on his tour of the UK, he as promised that not only will he be bringing a beautiful band of jazz musicians with him, but also a whole host of new songs, lesser known covers and 2/3 outfit changes.

Gaygirl make alt-grunge noise-pop, whilst retaining shoegazey undertones. ‘Indie Noir’ has been a term used to describe the emotive, visceral sonic of this female-fronted four piece. For fans of MBV, Radiohead, Nirvana and PJ Harvey; or those who want them all at once – get sent on a journey through the nuances of 90s nostalgia-meets-now with jarring melodies and guttural guitar vibes. Gaygirl have proven themselves to be a tight and dynamic live act on the London gigging scene, supporting the likes of Shame, Sorry and Gabrielle Cohen amongst many other up and coming bands.
