- Frances and The Majesties
- Pushy Pushy Pushy
- The Motor Show
Formed in South West London by primary school friends Freddie Brown and Huw Bell - and later Gabiele Zatterin - Automan jangle at the crossroads where bedeviled grunge meets melancholic shoegaze-pop, digging for self-worth within the pressures of modern life - channeling all its hard-exteriors while betraying the soft, emotional underbelly tearing up beneath.
Frances and The Majesties
Frances and the Majesties are a seven-piece band based in London. Their diverse backgrounds (from Italy to Morocco, via the UK) are reflected in the bands fresh, eclectic sound. Frances and the Majesties latest EP, All of time, is out Friday 10/11/23. The band’s new work marks a significant departure from their previous releases. From a modern 60s sound, the new tracks shift towards a jazzier, synth-led, electronic blend that stays true to the cinematic features that always characterised them. Melancholy still tinges Frances and the Majesties’ music, even more so with the new, soulful vocal approach of the upcoming release.
The Motor Show
Beau Vine pulls the strings from the back seat in this latest offering from the talismanic ranchero. Having fallen into relative obscurity in the early ‘90s after his second marriage ended expensively, legendary guitar-for-hire Beau Vine resurfaced nearly 3 decades later, plying his trade on a cattle farm in East Anglia. Not yet ready for the frills of fame, but eager to play music again, Vine put together a group of young locals to be his buffer. He branded them, The Motor Show. Formed in London pre-pandemic, The Motor Show has had to stay in the garage for the past few years & is all the better for it. This first batch of songs is a camp, fuzzy melodrama; full of noisy drums, twangy guitars & shade-cladded vocals.
Pushy Pushy Pushy
Pushy Pushy Pushy is a London-based band pioneering Postpartum Punk - a new music genre and movement. With two fresh mothers upfront and 3 sound candies on guitar, bass and drums, the band has been wowing audiences with powerful anthems and refreshing hooks. Their sound sits at the wild frontier where punk and cabaret meet, spiced up by interactive rituals, ASMR props, and unrefined stand-up between songs. Ready to push audiences into a new era of punk with gems such as 'Feed The Ticks', 'Filthy Old Man' and ‘True Love, Always Wins.’ The band will drop their debut album 'Lazy Dominatrix' later this year.
Granfergo is formed of brothers Euan Dean on guitar and Adam Dean on bass. They are joined by Joe Hayles-Cotton on drums. The group is rooted in South American psychedelic cumbia, African funk, North American surf rock and soul music. The result is an earthy, cinematic harmony of soaring guitar melodies, rumbling bass riffs and groove-driven percussion. Granfergo strives to achieve a blending of styles from various places around the world that would not normally be found together. Among their many influences you will find film soundtracks, sampled electronic music, and some of the most obscure musical gems from every era and every corner of the globe.
