Drawing influence from bands such as The National, Dry The River, Frightened Rabbit and Snow Patrol, China Bears create misery-strewn indie anthems combining ambient guitars, choral vocals and raw lyric writing. The end result is a fantastically precise sound which takes the original emo loud/quiet template of, say, Death Cab For Cutie, but adds a stadium-sized sonic sucker punch. All of which is evinced by their debut EP out now via Fierce Panda Records.
“A bunch of strong sounding melodies” – Steve Lamacq, BBC 6
“Such good song-writers” – Melita Dennett, BBC Introducing
“Brilliant, I wish I sounded like that at my stage of their career” – Frank Turner
Groff are an Alt-Rock Wonk/Pop band from the rural regions of Essex and Suffolk. Having played with varying degrees of success in multiple projects (Dingus Khan, Bessie Turner), they have united once more as a three piece. This time songwriter & front man Josh Court brings his own songs, with influences from Julian Casablancas to Car Seat Headrest. They are a mixture of catchy uplifting melodies, evocative lyrics and heavy guitar riffs.
A hybrid mix of pop, alternative soul, nu-jazz and funk which rings through her current single ‘HEY!’. ‘HEY!’ is the result of her collaboration with record producer Joe Dworniak, released by Riverfish Music.
“I’m so glad I played that” – Giles Peterson BBC 6Music
“Gabriela Eva, I’m opening the gates of BBC Introducing to you, because that was amazing!” – Ollie Winiberg – BBC Introducing Essex
