Gabriel Byrd & EXxotic Animals

Brazilian musical maven, London-based Guitarist, Songwriter, and Multi-Instrumentalist, Gabriel Byrd seamlessly blends the sophistication of his homeland sounds with influences from the golden eras of the 60s & 70s guitar-driven Rock, Blues & Folk. Hailing from his vibrant landscape, Gabe brings cinematic sophistication to his compositions and performances, with innate sonic innovation that transcends boundaries and defies easy categorization.


Formed in 2019 by friends from Brighton, Lewes and Stockholm, Tamesis are a 4-piece neo-psychedelic band and coven based in South London. Their name represents change and the unknown, and has a twofold meaning: the Celtic goddess of Spring Water who bore her name to the river Thames, and the proto-Brythonic term for ‘darkness’. Accordingly, their music represents flowing change and the unknown, while their lyrics touch on themes of mysticism, mythology, society, magic, and human nature. With gripping melodies, whimsical hooks and flowing rhythms, Tamesis delight in creating witchy and mercurial psychedelia.  Tamesis released their self-titled debut EP in 2020: a blend of psychedelic, stoner and folk rock containing the fan-favourite 'Cosmic Heat'. In the autumn of that year, they released their dynamic rendition of Donovan's 'Season of the Witch', while 2021 saw the release of 'Carousel', a haunting ode to love in the digital age. In December 2022, the exotic dance-hit 'Into Space' was released, and the band took 2023 by storm, playing in venues across London, Bristol, and Brighton, alongside artists such as Wand & the Moon and Wax Machine, and collaborating with visual artists India Rose and Jake Brown. Most recently they have added violin to their live instrumentation, propelling their performances to new heights. They are currently preparing the release of their 5-track follow-up EP, 'Magna Mater', scheduled for early 2024.

The Roves

The Roves released their third LP ‘Needle Factory’ last Christmas. 11 tracks which were recorded over lockdown in various UK studios such as Abbey Road and Konk in North London were mulled over and revised, making for their most ambitious effort yet.  However the album barely went noticed at first, but since that day, it has garnered a small following and reached an American audience through consistent plays and coverage on College and indie radio stations across the states.  In June of this year, the group made good on the album and toured it on the continent over 2 weeks, mainly in Germany. The ‘Needle Factory Tour’ managed to achieve some good press too. When the band pulled into Frankfurt, their show was reviewed by the Frankfurt Algemeine, a major national broadsheet.  Now the band are back, and is in the process of recording yet another LP, the first sessions of which happened recently in Paris, straight off the back of this tour. Hot as knives.  Now they are back home, the journey continues, and the Needle Factory Tour Part II starts in Norway & France this fall via a few hometown shows in London of course.

Late TV

Culling influences from jazz cats and art rockers, B-movies and trash television via Lynch and Tarantino, Late TV are the moonlighting house band for a surreal all-night dream club nestled amidst the cultural detritus of television’s after hours. Exploring the postmodern wastelands of pop as high-brow/low-brow mutant junk dwellers, collecting the shards of our fragmented culture and building something both irresistibly dangerous and dangerously irresistible. Guitarist / vocalist Luke J Novak and drummer Richard ‘Beu’ Bowman formed the group in the west midlands and later hooked-up with Chicago’s jazz obsessed bassist Ryan Szanyi and keyboard maestro Hannah Stacey in London.

Noah Samuel

Performing with his band, multi-instrumentalist Noah Samuel with French and Japanese roots combines the sensibility of 70s singer-songwriters with the production values of Japanese city pop to create a delicate and enduring soft rock sound.
