CURXES’ second album ‘Gilded Cage’ offers plenty of enigmatic electronically derived oddness. CURXES first appeared in 2011 before releasing the ‘Precurxor’ EP in 2014 and an album ‘Verxes’ a year later.
Those disappointed by ‘Verxes’ will savour the more hauntingly electronic ethos of ‘Gilded Cage’. It is more akin to another South Coast songstress GAZELLE TWIN than the DEPECHE MODE being eaten by SIOUXSIE & THE BANSHEES template that characterised their initial work. More Inside ›
Electropop duo AVEC SANS gave a wonderfully assured performance on the final night of their UK tour in London’s Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen with a dazzling combination of sound, colour and passion.
Since the release of their well-received debut album ‘Heartbreak Hi’ in June 2016, Alice Fox and Jack St James have been very much in demand for live shows where AVEC SANS have made the biggest impression. More Inside ›
SOL FLARE are the up-and-coming London based trio comprising of Jenny Jones, Dominic Wood and Matt Marlow who recently unleashed their first single ‘Easy Line’.
While Wood’s lush electronics and drum machine beats provide the vital musical backbone to SOL FLARE, it is Jones’ magnificent voice, ranging from a piercing high soprano down to a powerful contralto growl reminiscent of Rindy Ross from Portland soft rockers QUATERFLASH, which gives them their USP.

Gavin Dwight and Jen Cosgrave are the new Irish / Australian electronic pop duo AGE. Their debut single ‘Peaks’ is a wonderfully atmospheric dance tune that's perfect for those who prefer things to not be quite so bangin'.
With its piercing layers of synths and bursts of live percussion during its climax, ‘Peaks’ comes with a great video accompaniment with expansive earth shots and enigmatic slow-mo of the duetting duo that more than compliments the panoramic Nordic nature of ‘Peaks’. More Inside ›
It was almost six years to the day that LADYTRON last played London when their lead singer MARNIE made her debut performance as a solo artist at Hackney’s spacious but intimate Nordic themed venue Oslo.
Augmented by Sarah Stanley on keyboards, computers and guitars plus drummer Peter Kelly with possibly the LOUDEST snare in London, if not the world, MARNIE herself had a new Korg Minilogue with its distinctive wooden-look base for company. More Inside ›
