Neptune ValleyFormed in 2017 in the infamous north west of England, Neptune Valley are an alternative rock band who combine a cocktail of musical influences to create heavy guitar riffs, funky percussive bass lines and infectious pop choruses. This four piece consisting of Jordan Wilkinson (Lead Vocals and Guitar), Maxwell Varey (Lead Guitar and Vocals), David Tebbott (Bass and Vocals) and Elliot Barron (Drums) is definitely one to look out for as they continue to release constantly improving material. They’re music video for “Synthetic Love”, released in late 2019, has surpassed over 50,000 views on Facebook and looks to become a success. In addition, the singles released from they’re “Keeping The Faith” E.P so far have received critical acclaim within the Manchester and UK music scene and 2020 is looking to be the year that it communicates to mass audiences. Neptune Valley will return to Night and Day Cafe for a headline on Friday 21st August that should not be missed by Indie/Rock fans in the North West.

Alfie SkyIn a bedroom somewhere near Manchester, Alfie Sky is plugging things in. With winks of Aphex Twin, Kero Kero Bonito, New Order and similar, Alfie dispenses "songs" spanning glitchy electropop to rainy balladtronica. Lyrics draw influence from humans, videogames and lucid dreams with bright colours and metallic textures abound. Alfie’s live performance turns the singer-songwriter archetype into an erratic experiment, using sugary synths, big beats and completely gnarly visuals; entertaining the masses of glittery nerds planet-wide and beyond.
