Nela’s Odyssey (she/her)
22 year-old Manchester-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Antonia has been writing and performing music from an early age and playing various shows in her hometown of Wrexham since her early teens.
‘Headlights’ is the haunting debut single, released under the alias ‘Nela’s Odyssey’, that will make Antonia’s mark on the Manchester music scene, released through independent label, Someone Great Records. Written and performed by Antonia with production from Matt Davies of award-winning indie-pop duo Sleepyhead, Headlights takes inspiration from the indie folk-rock sound that Antonia grew up listening to with a nod to the complex and euphoric sounds of Ben Howard and Bon Iver. The track starts off slow and minimal with vocals taking centre stage, slowly building up acoustic sounds and percussion for a melancholic yet powerful finishing chorus.
Antonia’s first single ‘Headlights’ comes out on 23rd July, and she is currently performing solo acoustic sets.
Misha Mond (they/them)
Misha is a 21-year-old nonbinary guitarist/singer/songwriter with a liking for infusing languages beyond English into their music as well as a late 90s/early 00s pop element. They are currently starting out with recording their own stuff/writing after having spent the last year attending open mics and trying to find their feet as an artist and what they want to put out into the world. It has always been their dream to host gigs and redistribute funds to trans/lgbt charities and provide a safe space for them through music! They are also an amateur filmmaker so what they plan to create provides a soundscape for what it would feel like to step into a screen.
Redamarcy, also known as Will Smith is a solo indie/alternative musician from South Yorkshire. He is mainly involved with alt-rock and 90s/80s music culture yet is massively inspired by dream pop and modern indie.
