Since Empathy Test’s conception in January 2013, the unsigned electronic pop duo has produced two stunning, four-track EPs: Losing Touch (Feb. 2014) and Throwing Stones (Dec. 2014), which have won them both critical acclaim and a legion of dedicated fans worldwide. Their music has been featured by the likes of MTV’s Catfish, XFM, KCRW, BBC Introducing, Clash, Idolator, Earmilk, PopMatters and many more. Empathy Test is childhood friends Isaac Howlett (vocals) and Adam Relf (production). They grew up in Kent before moving to London, where they are working on their début album and preparing for a European tour in September.
Phoebe Warden is a 21 year old Singer/Songwriter fromCanterbury, Kent. Phoebe’s writing draws on her electic influences, from classic Motown, through Joni Mitchell to Jack White and Fleetwood Mac producing songs of a maturity that belies her years and captivate audiences with their lyrics and melody.
O MATÆUS is a 20 year old singer-songwriter born and raised in Canterbury. After being a cathedral chorister between the ages of 7 and 13, it was soon obvious that music was the only way forward. Songs contain personal notes to himself, and recount stories and emotions of times and people gone past with a mixture of nostalgia and a harrowing sadness. Having been performing his own songs for only 8 months he has been featured on Dover Community Radio, the Songwriters’ Showcase and has been seen alongside Eden Circle, who are both old friends and old band-mates. After leaving the band in the summer of 2015, O MATÆUS gave himself time to focus on his own songwriting and performing style. Expect soaring falsetto lines, simple yet intricate guitar licks and a wide variety of images portrayed by his lyrics; he wants to make you feel something, and if you listen carefully he’ll do just that.
