After a busy Summer from the Isle of Wight Festival and all over the gaff, Sheffield’s Floodhounds will be joining us at the start of the run to Autumn, bringing their precision high energy indie rock sound to the live room. Self-proclaimed rabble-rousers, they are a tightly locked three piece and their music maintains a heavy groove with infectious lyrics and choruses.
Championed by BBC Introducing Sheffield, and winners of a Pirate Studios’ National apply to play competition, and joint winners of Sensoria Festival’s Composition award, presented to the band by Steel City musical icon, Richard Hawley.
Gigslutz called FloodHounds latest release, ‘Take It Too Far’ a “psychedelia-packed beast of a tune”. It’s the first of four new tracks from FloodHounds forthcoming EP, due out mid 2019.
In support will be Nottingham’s Velvet Blush. Velvet blush are an all female Indie rock band from Nottingham and have recently won critics choice at the NTU battle of the bands! Since then have played lots of great shows, some to name are Splendour 2019, Dot to Dot 2019 and the Hockley Hustle! They have their first release upcoming soon. For fans of The Breeders, Courtney Barnett and The Big Moon. They have been described as “grunge soaked pop” and “indie rock”.

Fading Blonde came into the Indie scene in Nottingham early on in 2018 with a new expansive outlook on how to write classic indie songs with hints of more experimental genres. Bringing a fresh approach to the 2019 Indie scene, examples of this New Wave Eclectic Indie ensemble can be heard in the latest single “My Worst” aired on BBC Radio Nottingham by DJ Dean Jackson.
