Paul Hawkins & Thee Awkward Silences
Dark, creeping and melodramatic. fuzzy synths, lurching bass lines and chilling vocals. Its like some kind of Jack the Ripper back alley vaudevillian nightmare.
Emotional, sweeping shoegaze with yearning and wailing vocals and engulfing guitars emitting spine-tingling melodies.
Swampy psychedelic blues that echo Cream and Hendrix. Finger tangling leads and dirty bass lines, dig out the whisky and wait for that purple haze.
Superman Revenge Squad
Croydon's premier singer-songwriter. Part Flight of the Concords part Conor Oberst and the rest Ben from Croydon.
"A very sharp lyricist indeed… Absolute genius!" – Tom Robinson on Radio6 Music
