Melting Vinyl: Bringing the cream of live music to Brighton.

Posted January 29th 2015

What MV is looking forward to in 2015!

2015 is halfway through a decade, and 3 years passed the apocalypse!

1. Which Melting Vinyl show/shows are you looking forward to this year?

2. Which shows (Brighton and outside) are you looking forward to this year?

3. Which festivals are you looking forward to this year?

MV are looking forward to:

1. PINS. There are alot of similar girl bands around at the moment but I
think they have got something that makes them stand out; pretty epic.
They are Northern, look good and I want to be in their gang, plus it’s cool they are on Bella Union as they don’t quite fit with the other acts on the label.

2. A Wing Victory for the Sullen at King’s Place in Februray. They’ve created a new sound that transport you somewhere out there. I was working at the Brighton show, but I was still captivated by the music.
Can I also say Sleater Kinney later in the year?!

3. Field Day 2015. It’s always good for discovering new music and it’s in a lovely neat park in London, always a winner.

1. The Melting Vinyl show I am most looking forward to is Tom Williams. I really love the creative folk-rock of Tom Williams & The Boat and can’t wait to see what he has in store with his solo project.

2. The Brighton show I am looking forward to is Seth Lakeman, ever since I used to walk the dog in the rain to his music I have loved his upbeat multi-instrumental tracks. But I haven’t been able to see him live, something that will change this year!

3. The festival I am looking forward to is Lewes Live, a great line up, a great area and who can say no to a festival with a “Real Ales” button and their website!

1. RONiiA at Komedia Studio – March 19. A new collaborative project full of dark synthy stuff which sounds exciting.

2. Grouper at St. John-at-Hackney Church, London. It’s set to be a breathtaking and atmospheric night; potentially metaphysical.

3. The Great Escape, Glastonbury, SXSW. Whether I’ll be at any of them is another question entirely though!

1. Polar Bear – Komedia – 15/04/15 – I’m really looking forward to seeing this band for the first time, with their hugely engaging experimental jazz, this is not one to miss!

2 Black Arts + Teef – Fitzherbert’s Brighton – 07/02/15. Excellent showcase of Brighton hardcore and punk in a small compact venue.

Turbowolf + Dolomite Minor – Tunbridge Wells Forum – 17/04/15
With the release of their new album coming close, I am really excited to see Turbowolf live again and hear their new material they’ve been working on for the past few years!

Sodom – Underworld Camden – 20/02/15
An excellent 80s German thrash metal band that I have not seen in over 3 years, very excited for this one!

3. Glastonbury – After being my favourite festival of last year (and possibly ever!) I will surely be returning to Glastonbury this year with both its huge landscape of oddities and things to do

Great Escape – I’m extremely excited to not only attend Great Escape Festival for the first time, but also be a part of the live music played across several venues in Brighton!
