Cheatahs - London, Colony

Just weeks until the release of their (brilliant) debut full-length, Cheatahs intend on bringing the house down before you can begin to set the table for Christmas dinner. Shoegaze-nodding noise is their thing, and they’re getting more assured at their craft with each step.

Seán Carpio

Dublin’s Seán Carpio puts the ‘WOW’ in his debut release ‘WOWOW’. Head in the clouds, daisy chains inevitably dressing his brow, the experimental pop newcomer gives folk a playful, ever-changing sheen. On ‘Is It Any Wonder?’ (above), he channels Gruff Rhys/ Jim Noir in a determinist streak of nature-loving excitability.
