Tuesday 4th Aug

Sessions commence 7.15pm

Tuesday night is indie night at the Fringe with 4 of the most exciting young breakthrough bands from across the UK. Featuring Exeter's own thrusting quirky young indie dance band The Sherpas, the astonishing musicianship of Manchester/London duo Twin Hidden, the highly tuneful sound-of-summer Kent band Native People, and the intensely-catchy retro-tinged tunes of London art-school boys MOVIE...

The Sherpas

 

Exeter's own indie-guitar band heros The Sherpas are said to be 'putting the funk back into indie music' and will be unleashing their frenetic upbeat sound to kick off our 'IndieNite'. Combining charming vocals, tuneful melodies and energetic guitar riffs they produce a wall of sound that is all their own. Reminiscent of 80’s bands such as Orange Juice, Haircut 100 and A Certain Ratio. With a growing band of followers, an increasing praise from music blogs and EP launch this summer  -  it seems these boys have and exciting future ahead...

Twin Hidden

 

Delighted to welcome Twin Hidden who are a London-based multi-instrumentalist duo who produce wonderfully colourful upbeat indie pop. We have been rather swept up by their infectious songwriting, beautiful piano melodies, breathy vocal harmonies and astonishing musicianship. They have attracted critical acclaim from the likes of BBC Introducing, 6 Music and the Line of Best Fit and will be playing both Glastonbury and Latitude Festivals this summer. An exciting and energetic live act. 

Native People

 

Native People are a 'ludicrously young' and talented indie dance band from Folkstone in Kent who have been snapped up by the BBC Introducing team and set for big things. 'Blazing synths, lazer sharp guitars and anthemic vocals' this unfeasibly-melodic 4-piece band draw impressive comparisons to acts such as Foals, Two Door Cinema Club and Friendly Fires. The band capture that much-loved 80s vintage sound.are the quintessential soundtrack to summer... 

MOVIE (Now know as Screaming Peaches!)

 

Considerably chuffed to have persuaded London indiepop 4 pce Screaming Peaches to break off from an impressive list of major festivals to play for us this summer!  These colourful art-school cheeky chaps create the most intensely catchy retro-tinged tunes and splendidly bizarre videos (They seem to have a curious penchant for getting naked in many of their videos - the reason for this is still not entirely clear). One of the most exciting new indie bands out of London town right now...  Think lovechild of Blur + Talking Heads, Divine Comedy and even some Beatles DNA thrown in for good measure.

 

An irresistible earful of euphoric retro sounds...
