RED KITES, Urvanovic, Andy Ruddy
Explosive and emotive folk rock 5-piece Red Kites formed in September 2010 at The Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford. A shared love of modern folk and rock drove the direction of the sound, and the member’s very different musical backgrounds added unexpected ingredients into the mix, leading to a sound that was original while channelling the sound of hundreds of musical influences. The debut E.P ‘Beat in Time’ was released in April 2012, and the band went on to play several Scottish festivals that summer, including Rockness, Belladrum and Go North. They are currently on tour in the UK promoting their second E.P. ‘New Life Ignites’
Urvanovic – ‘er-van-o-vitch’ – are a seven-piece variety bucket of strings, synths, vocals, percussion and other noises. They play catchy pop with a mixture of sweet and harsh sounds and intertwined vocals.

Percolate vocal harmonies, deft instrumentals, and subtle time signature changes are what filter into the superb arrangements of the hallmark trio from Calgary, Canada . With intricate refrains woven by cello, piano, and guitar, Raleigh are as much ear candy as head candy – thoughtful and emotive, restrained, but utterly engaging. Unafraid of both straight-up pop hooks, folk traditions and complex song structure, this is a band uniquely shaping their own space in new music. Raleigh’s lush composition draws on the finer elements of earthy folk, chamber pop and art-damaged indie rock, with delicate melodies that hold the whole thing together, resulting in a sound that has been described as “a more thoughtful, elegant indie”, and “dynamic, quirky folk.” Having cut their teeth in diverse acts including Woodpigeon and the Dudes, this trio stems from a lofty lineage. Both boisterous and rock solid, Raleigh will relentlessly capture your affections with their boundless grace.

WHALES IN CUBICLES
“Surly and melodic… sounds like Stephen Malkmus kicking out the jams with Weezer.” The Fly
“Huge riffs and apathetic anthems.” ?The Independent
“An impressive display of hazy guitars, thundering drums and raw vocals” Clash
London based Whales In Cubicles create complex but often minimalist soundscapes that owe more to 90s alternative rock than psychedelia. With strong support from The Fly, Q Magazine, The Independent, Artrocker, Clash and major attention from BBC Radio 1, BBC 6Music, XFM and Amazing Radio they’re building up quite the momentum.

“Dovetailing vocal harmonies, bare-bones strings, guitar and piano folk-pop arrangements, and lyrics of keening candour, give thir songs the pulling-on the-heartstrings simplicity that you would find in the work of Fleet Foxes and First Aid Kit.” The Sunday Times
“Teenaged sisters, heart-melting harmonies…” The Independent on Sunday
“mountain air-pure voices.” Guardian New Band of the Day
“The girls have made a gorgeously restrained full-length debut that intimates both youthfulness in its most innocent state and startling self-awareness. A small miracle.” Uncut 8/10
