The Chunks

A singer-songwriter, making riot-grrl pop about her life, specialising in sweet melodies and razor sharp lyrics.

Dark electronica/hyperpop. She reminded me of Daft Punk and she was incredible live - very entrancing.

Macon Heights Woman and man

Macon Heights:

Mally is a musician & songwriter with a beautiful voice who write songs from the heart.

Indie/post-punk. The Omega Corridor are a four-piece busy working on effects and obscure chords, in a desperate bid to create the last sound from the last band you will ever hear on your final walk of triumph or shame.

Riarki & Hersel band, 2 women with a guitar and bass standing next to each other

Abass/guitar duo. Too much reverb please.


Sha Rivari

The 21st century synth punk band providing retrofuturistic riffs for the freaks of today! What's that? A criss-cross between dark wave, garage rock, electroclash and post punk.
