Adam, Hear the Sea – Sorrow 

Based in East London, Adam, Hear the Sea is the new music project and pseudonym for rising singer-songwriter and producer Adam Karayiannis. Of British-Cypriot descent and specialising in the thoughtful end of pop, his influences include the varied likes of Florence and The Machine, Sam Smith, Paloma Faith, Kate Bush, Morissey, Erasure and David Bowie.

Goldsmack – A Wild Wild Season 

To define Goldsmack, just imagine that Love, Bruce Haack, The Velvet Underground and Nico teamed up to compose a song for a Disney classic.

They are a psychedelic power pop trio of gold-scented, gold junkies, created to bring discord and entropy into the world of pop music with a sound that is soft and electric; quirky and genuine; super serious and absolutely whimsical.

Andreya Triana – That’s Alright With Me

One of the UK’s favourite vocal talents, Andreya Triana has collaborated with musical giants such as Bonobo, Flying Lotus and Mr Scruff to name a few, and recently joined Bonobo on stage at his sold out Alexandra Palace UK show to a rapturous reception. 

MARIANNROSA – Banjo For My Bitches 

Former Judge on Norway’s version of ‘Idol’, Mariann is already a household name in her native Scandinavia. As former front woman of Norwegian thrash power pop band Surferosa, Mariann has supported the likes of The Killlers, Electric Six and Turbonegro.

Not only recognised for her original and powerful vocals, Mariann’s flamboyant and extraodinary style has made her an instantly recognisable figure across Europe and Asia, once gaining her the title of Best Dressed Norweigan Artist. Mariann even has her very own room displaying her costumes and work in the Norweigan Museum of Popular Music!

Context – In The Bag

Norwich-born lyricist Context has come a long way since his first career highlight back in 2011, the release of the self-made video for ‘Off With Their Heads’ starring Ed Sheeran, which made MTV’s playlist.

Four years later and his celebrity fan list including Plan B and Ellie Goulding, the London-based MC has a whole host of achievements to his name. He was the first unsigned artist to be nominated in the MTV Brand New list, he signed a global publishing deal with EMI/Sony/ATV and collaborated with big names; including one of his musical inspirations, Mike Skinner, who joined Context for a re-recording of his 2013 classic ‘Small Town Lad Sentiments’, last year.
