Founded by Joe Laycock and Jack Sharp as a successor to theatrical punk group Cheap Teeth, the pair birthed the project from their joint love of immersive, beat-driven soundscapes and an exploration of subtle shifts. Featuring members of Catholic Action and Pressure Retreat, the band aims to urge the listener’s ear into progressively choppy waters whilst simultaneously grounding them in firm lyrical soil.
Having built up an archive of songs over the past year, the band is set to peek their head above water with lead single “Halfway to Hockney”. Recorded by Matt Peel at the Nave in Leeds, the track is centred forgivingly around an individual’s thirst for meaning, as the protagonist falls perilously from the tree of self-identity, grasping at every characteristic branch on the way down, desperate to not be swept away by their impending crisis.
Origami Tsunami are an exciting alternative rock band. With prismatic intertwining guitar parts and clever lyrics, they forge a dynamic and effervescent sound that draws you into their world. They have released several singles to high praise from media outlets such as BBC Introducing and BBC Radio 6 with Tom Robinson describing them as the, “Salford virtuosos” with “Jaw-dropping musicianship”.
Prawn prison is an electronic solo project based in Manchester, fusing together writer Jack’s uniquely brummie deliberations about the slimy world around us, with driven punk and infectiously funk instrumentals. Exploring the Heat Magazine Philosophy and apathetic nature of modern England through his poetry, Jack describes his approach to songwriting as the only thing exciting his past the morning TV schedule.
The Redworld is an indie rock and grunge band, with 4 singles out and several shows at big venues under their belt, this extensive group is ready to take the Manchester music scene by storm with high energy, powerful instrumentals and catchy lyricism.
