SHANGHAI BLUES – CLASH MAGAZINE – “There’s a steady sense of calm running through the music of SHANGHAI BLUES. Perhaps it’s an innate sense of zen, or maybe it’s simply confidence in their abilities” Childhood friends hailing from Walthamstow, East London – SHANGHAI BLUES are Chalky (Vocals, Bass), Reece (Guitar), James (Guitar) and Mike (Drums). Three long and busy DIY years for SHANGHAI BLUES have culminated in 650,000 combined streams across all DSP’s, 200+ independent single sales, seven sold-out London headline shows, three UK tours, support slots with Palace, Marsicans, Glass Caves, Theme Park, Palace, The Rifles and Judas, editorial backing from Spotify (The Indie List, Hot New Bands & Fresh Finds: Rock), Apple Music (best of the week), Abbie McCarthy (BBC Intro/Radio 1), Gordon Smart (Radio X), CLASH, Music Week, The Evening Standard, NME, Madison Square Gardens, It’s All Indie, Punktastic, and WTHB – and they’re only getting started. “We like getting drunk and playing fucking loud – not enough people do that these days.”
CARRY THE CROWN – Carry The Crown are bringing their energy driven version of modern alt rock to the forefront of the music scene across the UK. Known for their thrilling stage performances, they bring their catchy and anthemic sounds and mix them with a stage show that the crowds love. With an exciting commercial image, the boys both look and sound the part as a major band for the future. This, mixed with exposure from the BBC Introducing platform, has lead to the band being featured by Huw Stephens on his Radio 1 show. After the success of their first EP they are back with a matured sound that perfectly brings together the melodic vocals of bands like You Me At Six and smashes them together with the bouncy guitar work of Don Broco. The band are driven beyond belief and have achieved more in their first year than even they could have expected. After meeting in Lincoln one night and talking about their love of live music the idea for Carry The Crown was born. Since that date the fan base and support has exploded and fans are crying out for more of what CTC are creating.
HOW NICE – Playing the most exciting rock music in the country can be a lot of fun, just ask the ghost of John Lennon, or How Nice. Their powerful combination of guitars, drums and bass allows poetically nonsensical lyrics to intrigue listeners with the sincerity, or lack thereof displayed. Recounting late-night experiences in central London buying tea bags, psychedelic adventures in the woods or metaphorical journeys through the synapses of self, How Nice have no shortage of pretentious explanations for their songs.
