Over the last three years, Creeper have burst onto the music scene providing a perfectly executed mix of punk emo-rock, with an image and attitude to follow suit. Forming in Southampton, the band assembles members of ex-Our Time Down Here, Hang The Bastard and Doomed From Day One as well as members being closely afflicted with Southampton Solent – and all have come along way since what only feels like a short amount of time.
Our Hollow, Our Home are a five piece melodic metalcore act, hailing from Southampton. Over the past four years, the local music scene has seen the band play relentlessly at some of the best grassroots venues across the south coast but now with the upcoming release of their debut album, the boys are set to face their biggest leap ever.
Eddie Green, Charlie Forbes, Josh Finerty, Sean Coyle-Smith, Charlie Steen make up the band Shame from South London. This is a band with a strange new sound that encompasses that The Doors, Pulp and The Stooges all in one. They have a great live presence, and plan to release their first EP later this year.
This is a Band hailed by radio one as ‘the future’, and is one that makes for easy listing, with catch melodies and great riffs. Inspired by older artists and bands such as The Beatles, Bowie and REM, this group is one that seems to have encapsulated everything they have heard and moulded it into their own style, with a vaguely similar to style to that of Foals, the Vaccines and Wolf Alice, and who have now managed to secure a top slot at this years’ Isle of White festival.
