Hot Wax

“On the south coast of England, refreshingly inspired by No One…a BIG sound exudes from an uber young power trio known as HOTWAX.  Composed, slightly aloof: they complete the checklist for dark, sultry glamour.  Moody vocals and deep instrumental weavings through psych-rock to funk.  Woeful songs of teenage angst, songs of ferocious love, songs so beautifully innocent yet so poignant with an energy inspired by “Life”…Albertine, PJ Harvey, even Karen O would, for sure, give ‘em the nod.  Making music way beyond their years, Hotwax are refreshingly NOT like anything else!

The Stealers
”The Stealers are a fresh, fiery Punk Rock band from Brighton, UK. They formed in the September of 2019 and are already ticking some of Brighton’s most well-known venues off their list. In the summer of 2020 one of the industry’s leading punk bands showed an interest in The Stealers and later that month they were in the studio recording with Sam Cox of Lady Bird. After the release of their debut EP “Pretty Killer” the band had airplay on the Bangers and Trash radio show and received praise from presenters Isaac Holman (Slaves) and DJ Kelly Lee. Since then, the band has been played on radio slots such as indie rocks and Reverb Radio FM. They have new music in the works so are a band to watch out for this coming year!”
