Gaygirl make alt-grunge noise-pop, whilst retaining shoegaze 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.

“Noisy yet delicate, and at once intense and shoegazey. Their primal vocals, grunge guitars and tone that strikes both dark and light are reminiscent of early Wolf Alice, while their lyrics focus on a refreshing honesty.” – Line of Best Fit

+ support from Public Body

“Taut, wiry post-punk with a visceral edge, there’s a Brutalist quality to the sound, as if each riff is a concrete block hewn into some ragged, imposing shape” – Clash Magazine

+ Politeburo
With members varying from different areas of the UK from East Croydon to West Yorkshire, PoliteBuro are a band led by driven energy of drums and lead bass. This transcends with melodic dancing guitar riffs, contrasting with aggressive discordant sharp tones. Topped off with passionate vocals and somber, chilling lyrics.
