THE GIG
Blessa - London, Tipsy


Sheffield’s Blessa pride themselves on sweet-tasting nostalgia, harking back to the 80s but forcing through some modern revivalism to boot. One of their first London outings, this’ll be a big occasion for a band on the brink of something special.

THE SONG
Unity Floors - Nice Fit


Blissed-out and carefree, it takes just four chords to reach relative paradise when you’re Unity Floors. The duo of Gus Hunt and Henry Gosling take things to an end goal of heady escape via some cleanly applied but riotous guitar interchange. ‘The sweetest thing that you will ever know,’ is the subject, with both members bouncing about in a musical sandpit of sugary treats.
