Tiny Giants: http://www.tinygiants.co.u"‹k/

BBC 6music - "Fantastic new band with a bluesy twist" - Tom Robinson
BBC Introducing - "Simply Brilliant" - Alan Raw
Radio Aire, Leeds - "Fabulous new band"
Galaxy Radio - "This band are going to be huge"

An atmospheric sound of up beat rock mixed with freakish blues and funky
undertones. Their knack for penning songs with a catchy hook and
incredible live show have ensured that they have turned heads recently,
you must see them.

Sawsound (acoustic set): http://www.sawsound.co.uk/

" the band (celebrating the release of their album 'We Have It All') accelerate into a performance tinged with everything from proto-Tool guitar heroics to Celtic vocal harmonies and string lines. The angular guitar playing of front man Simon Whitton and frequently shifting tempos and time signatures are contrasted throughout by the unity of his powerful vocal performance and the playing of violinist Tori Campbell, creating a compelling, occasionally baffling tapestry of genres that threatens to collapse frequently into barely organized noise in a way that is most thrilling. The only thing consistent about Sawsound is how interesting and exciting they are to listen to"
Josh Lewis - Leeds Music Scene.

Broken Buttons: http://www.thebrokenbutton"‹s.com/

"That Broken Buttons sound"...is probably not a phrase your going to hear brandished around reviews and post-gig talk for this band. Does this mean they haven't found themselves yet? Settled in to their own style? No.

Listen to them once and you will go away with a melody stuck in your head. Every tune is melody strong with deep set influences from The Beatles, Electric Light Orchestra and 10cc evident on songs such as "I say to thee", and "Boy to a Man". The song "Broken Kingdom" pounds out with an almost disco quality akin to LCD Soundsystem meets Franz Fredinand. "Bad Blood" is like "top hat & tails with a stomp box", and we've got a fair share of bluesy moments along the way on songs such as "Vagabond & me", and "The Show"

These Blue Arms: https://www.facebook.com/t"‹hesebluearms

Mixing together genres of punk rock and grunge, these blue arms create a raw noise reminiscent to that of early Green day/ nirvana. With heavy drums, catchy melodies along side an energetic live show the band will be making waves on music scene in the upcoming months and aint to be missed.
