Tuff Love are Julie, Suse and Michael from Glasgow - makers of dazzling, sun-streaked guitar pop. Mesmerising lyrics, heart wrenching vocals, dreamy melodies. The sound of pure summer. The band’s heart-stopping debut, Junk EP, was released on Lost Map Records in May and they’re currently recording their second EP - due for release later in the year.
“Shimmering lo-fi pop without the fuss and the pretention; a short injection, but it stays in your system. It’s like Pixies’ Kim Deal doing pure pop, and it sounds absolutely brilliant.” Ravechild
COLOUR ME WEDNESDAY
Colour Me Wednesday are a four piece DIY punk/indie pop band based in West London fronted by the Doveton sisters on vocals and guitar and backed up rhythmically by Sam Brackley (drums) and Carmela Pietrangelo (bass). Their long-awaited debut album 'I Thought It Was Morning' was released on Discount Horse records over summer 2013 followed by a successful UK tour. Lyrically, the band touch on politics, social frustration, sexism, growing up and relationships which is expressed using catchy hooks, harmonies and gang vocals.
“Buoyant pop-punk with a C86 glow that’ll have you kicking your heels and ready to take on the world.” – GoldFlakePaint
Fantasically boisterous oddball noise from Brighton, heavy on the childlike thrill of making music and thick with lo-fi, melodic direct hits. A guitar/drums duo of Moe and Liam, Dog Legs songs are a rush on the verge of collapse, and their debut EP ‘Awkward’ is totally recommended.
“Feel good surf/garage punk that harks back to the early days proto-punk” – Backseat Mafia
