THE ROVES (London)

Spotify / Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Bandcamp

The Roves hail from the suburbs of North London. The band play guitar fuelled British rock and roll music. In just under a year (May 2018 – April 2019) The Roves have released two stunning albums – ‘The Roves’ & ‘All Those Freaks’.

Their S/T debut album popped out of nowhere in 2018 gleaming with bright jangle pop and classic songwriting moments which won the hearts of anyone who heard it. ‘The Roves made number five in the best international albums of 2018 by Hipersonica in Spain. Their latest LP ‘All Those Freaks’ (Meritorio) was released in April 2019 and added a dose of raw folk flare to their spirited 60’s sound. One reviewer recently described the new LP as ‘A treasure of the blessed hell’. It has since gone on to top the Hotel Azizona blog’s albums of the year.

The Roves recent single ‘Hey Little Man’ was released on September 14th 2019 via El Rancho. The track is a re recorded version of a track from their latest album and was recorded to tape at Ray Davies’s Konk Studios in London. The single has received praise of the highest indie order from the likes of Bobby Gillespie, Stephen Pastel, John Cavanagh, Alan McGee and Gerry Love who has described it as an “instant classic”. The single caught the ears of Gideon Coe who has played both the A and B side a number of times on his BBC6 Music show. Most recently Iggy Pop opened his ‘Iggy Confidential’ BBC6 Music show (09/01/20) with ‘Hey Little Man’ praising the track as “refreshing and approachable”. You don’t get much better than that!

The Roves closed 2019 touring extensively across Europe with Nick Waterhouse and in the UK with YAK and Primal Scream where they were the main support on seven dates of their Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll tour.

Finishing touches are currently being made to a new EP due out in late April and the band will be back out on the road to support the new release.

SAVAGE MANSION (Glasgow)

Spotify / Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Bandcamp

Savage Mansion is Glasgow-based purveyor of scuzzy slacker guitar pop and ex Poor Things, Craig Angus. His band consist of a revolving cast of musicians that typically includes Lewis Orr (Space Rocket Garage Band) on drums and Andrew McPherson and Jamie Dubber from Catholic Action on second guitar and bass.

Savage Mansion are a loud, loose, ferociously melodic and endlessly entertaining indie rock band who wear their influences from the Velvet Underground, Neil Young, REM and Pavement proudly pinned to their jackets and they know how to construct classic power-pop. Angus’s lyrical wit and wry observational storytelling is key to the song structures and he has a relentless flow and stamina in the same vein as Courtney Barrnet or Andrew Savage of Parquet Courts. Live Savage Mansion unleash a barrel load of catchy sing along songs uninterrupted and without hesitation!

Savage Mansion released their debut album ‘Revision Ballads’ in 2019 on Lost Map Records which received best of the year nominations from The Skinny and Vic Galloway. The singles ‘Elwood’ and ‘Situation Comedy’ were lovingly picked up by Lauren Laverne and Marc Riley for BBC6 Music.

In 2019 Savage Mansion played at Lost Map’s Howlin’ Fling festival as well as Tenement Trail and they completed a small run of headline UK shows. Alongside LYLO and Sweaty Palms they played shows in Granada and Madrid before appearing at Monkey Week Music Festival in Seville to a full house which lead to a five star review in the Spanish music press.

This January Savage Mansion play at Summerhall in Edinburgh with the Ninth Wave and Independent Venue Week at The Glad Cafe. Their second album ‘Weird Country’ is out on April 3rd 2020 on Lost Map.

TOMORROW SYNDICATE (Glasgow)

You Tube / Spotify / Facebook / Twitter / Instagram

Tomorrow Syndicate emerged from Glasgow’s Southside virtually fully formed, aesthetically honed as a DIY collective, absorbed in visual VHS expression (You Tube) and armed with dreamy, sci-fi influenced space age pop hooks that sound “uniquely and simultaneously yesterday, today and tomorrow”. 

Their debut singles ‘Altered State/ Okulomotor’ and ‘Into The Void / X For The Unknown’ sold out in the blink of an eye and soon after their debut album Future Tense all released on Polytechnic Youth sold out almost instantaneously, attaining universally rave reviews and a ton of 6music radio plays. 

Their follow up ‘Citizen Input’ (Polytecnic Youth) breaks free from the confines of their home recording set up – now with a firmly established, expanded line up, the band set out to capture a more robust, energetic, fully realized live sound. The new 10” mini album is underpinned by a series of mesmeric Moog grooves and propulsive Dinger-esque motorik beats. Waves of synth-driven turbulence, sampled hypnotic spoken word passages and lucid, often bittersweet melodies aim to transfix and bewilder the listener.

Steve Lamacq played their new track ‘Captain, I am Fading’ recently and Gideon Coe who was the first to play the band on 6 is already showing his continued support. Moving in their own space and time and with only a handful of shows (albeit sold out shows) to their name, Tomorrow Syndicate have already amassed a devoted following and created cult pedigree status.
