FLEEING NEW YORK
Quite possibly the most exciting new bands in Britain, with pop suss of the 80s fringe variety and the drifting cool of Detroit and Dandy Warhols. These pesky indie kids from Southampton have been creating quite a stir, come see why we’ve been raving about them for months.
Sample Track: 'Hollywood Bowl'
Their gliding brand of art-pop caught the ears of none other than Elbow’s Guy Garvey and the folks of I Am Kloot, who snapped up these Liverpudlians for their Skinny Dog label. In a parallel world they're probably what Belle & Sebastian would make with The Fall and The Postal Service.
Sample Track: 'Bitch'
Giant thumping pop rock, rather like a widescreen Fountains Of Wayne. Their new recordings have caught the ears of many a record company man, and armed with tracks like the nagging, insatiable 'All I Really Want', it's not too surprising at all.
