Formed in 2015 by long-time collaborators Charlie Fitzgerald and Rhii Williams, Little Thief have created their own, unmistakable brand of raw, gritty and soulful alternative rock. They’ve previously played live sets at Glastonbury and Liverpool Sound City Festival, and the 2021 release of their debut album ‘Under The Patio‘, recorded with Stew Jackson (Massive Attack), saw them receiving support from the likes of Far Out Magazine, RTE, Steve Lamacq (BBC 6), BBC Introducing, XS Manchester and Amazing Radio. ♫♪♪
Support comes from
Cannon Ridge are a rock trio from the south. Formed in late 2022, with the mutual love for groove, heaviness and melody (with a hint of yee haaw!) Always trying to make the wheel rounder.
The Parlours are a four piece band from the south coast, who met at school and haven’t gotten round to splitting up just yet. Taking influence from bands such as Sports Team, The Smiths, and Fontaines D.C., they combine the intricate guitar riffs of modern alt-rock with driving vocal melodies that swing from post-punk grit to classic indie rock ballads. With tracks discussing friendship, getting old, fear of responsibility, and 2008/09 Wayne Rooney, their distinct sound that they can’t quite explain themselves makes them impossible to pin down.
In 2023, heavy alt-rock three-piece Civil Villains release their debut album, “Motion Sick”. Recorded at Shaken Oak Studios with Mike Bannard (Foals, Glass Animals), it’s the accumulation of creative ideas that have buzzed within the band for many years, painstakingly crafted and hewn into a form that the band are proud to now be sharing. ♫♪♪
