Perfect pop. Northern Soul energy. Brilliant tunes. Some of the best lyrics you’ll ever hear. Ace guitars. That’s Spearmint, and never more so than on their debut album, one of those lost classics which did not sell that much at the time, but became greatly loved and hugely influential and still sounds as individual and fresh now as it did then, chockful as it is of great singles like indie anthem “Sweeping The Nation”, "A Trip Into Space" and "We're Going Out". Catch the final rays of summer as the coolest, most under-rated, most influential, most uplifting band in British indiepop take us once again for “A Week Away”.
"One day Spearmint will be hailed as Gods" - NME.
The sun's warming rays can also be felt all over The Junipers debut album "Cut Your Key". This 5-piece cosmic pop outfit are a breath of fresh air and have received praise & airplay from Steve Lamacq, Mark Radcliffe, Janice Long, Marc Riley, & Tom Robinson & had Single of the Week on Radio 2. "Honest, joyful songs with sucrose vocals & chord changes pulled from a broken heart" is a perfect summary of what this band are about.
"Mixing equal parts baroque, psychedelic, & sunshine pop sensibilities, but with a darker than usual undercurrent" (Bucket Full of Brains)
