The Finalists!

Listen to the tracks by clicking the artist’s name

Johnny Kills

Johnny Kills are trio from Brighton/London creating what they call garage-surf.  “Our music is about being in your early 20s and clueless; fuzzy and anxious tunes for fuzzy and anxious times.”  Should these take your fancy, you’ll be getting Not So Bad and End Game on limited edition colour vinyl.

Not So Bad

End Game

VIOLET

VIOLET are a five piece form the Midlands creating powerful and addictive indie guitar tracks. They’re at the beginning of what will hopefully be an exciting music career with only one track released to the world as of yet. “Drenched in big sounds with an indie spark, combining influences that draw from 90s Grunge to Britpop” is how they describe themselves. Should VIOLET come out on top, we’ll be pressing their yet to be released track Jaded with Feel.

Coming Soon

Fick As Fieves

Fick As Fieves are indie rock trio from what they call a sleepy seaside town – Aldeburgh, Suffolk. We’ll let them sum up their sound: “[we] play an upbeat style of indie rock with riff driven ear worms and tight catchy hooks.” They’ve got a brand new EP coming out soon – and as luck would have it we’ll be pressing two brand new tracks if it’s these guys Hurd members go for.

Previous release

Lauran Hibberd

Lauran Hibberd is a twenty year old indie pop artist from the Isle of White. She’s already played the main stage at Bestival and supported acts like Clean Cut Kid (as well as last month’s winner Jerry Williams!). She told us “the first thing I say when I meet new people is ‘Don’t tell me stories, I’ll write songs about them’ which reflects the meaning behind her tracks. Should it be Lauran Hibberd that gets the vote – we’ll be pressing Is This What Adults Do? and Eliza.

Is This What Adults Do?

Eliza

TV Me

Have a 60s spiritual awakening with TV Me – these guys are a trio from Liverpool producing future pop. It’s a little Sgt. Peppers meet Fleet Foxes meet Simon and Garfunkel.  Here’s what they say: “tracks inspired by childhood, Playstations, memories of old computers and regurgitated pop culture.” If  TV Me get the majority, we’ll be pressing two tracks from their new EP which is due for release imminently – Stitches and Mountain Biplane.
