Love Thy Neighbour and Melting Vinyl presents:
Norway’s Pom Poko has accelerated through the music business space-time continuum, and has in its first 8 months as a band been booked to Trondheim Calling, been Ukas Urørt at NRK P3, held in high acclaim at Line of Best Fit and is in regular rotation at both Norwegian and Czech radio. In January, they were voted 5th on the Norwegian music industry’s annual list of promising artists, and released their first official single It’s a Trap.
Sweet sing-song vocals are mixed with intense grooves, bouncy guitars and absurd riffs, and make Pom Poko a feat to behold live. Reduce the testosterone, increase the sugar rush, and get ready for this K-PUNK explosion!
“a band willing to experiment all while staying immensely catchy.” – NME
Support comes from:
Hailing from the Isle of Man, Penelope Isles is the sounds of Jack and Lily Wolter, with the help of friends Becky Redford and Jack Sowton. Currently based between Brighton and Cornwall, the band perform melodic fuzz pop with dynamics that will transfix and satisfy. Hypnotic, chiming bedroom pop music. For the lovers of Radiohead, The Magic Numbers and Deerhunter.
Since releasing single ‘Creature’, FUR – Will Murray, Harry Zwaig, Will Tavener and Flynn Whelan have burst into the Brighton DIY scene, infusing indie rock with influences similar to early 60’s music, which prove to be melodic and guitar driven at the best of times. FUR are well recognised for their ability to work in a poetic style whilst providing love songs that reflect the embodiment of heart break in youth culture and music
