Tender Hooligans:

"A massive load of support cheered a clearly confident Tender Hooligans on stage. After four years together, theses lads from Skipton have accrued a devout following, and not without reason. The front man's vocals exuded the charisma similar to that of Ian Brown. A banging electric bass drum drove the tunes forward and with great use of stems, developed the music into banging Whip-like dancy numbers. Well polished and tight as you like, this band are certainly one to watch." - Manchester O2 Academy

Drawing influence from alternative indie as well as electronica, their dance tinged sound, psychedelic soaked guitar tones, driving bass lines, use of synths, a traditional/electronic drum crossover and confident vocal style show influences from bands such as Ian Brown, Kasabian, Forward Russia, Soulwax, The Music, and Joy Division among others.

"The band plays regularly to massive crowds at 93 Feet East in London and have supported acts such as Band Of Skulls, Kate Jackson (ex-Long Blondes) and TOWNs elsewhere in the UK. This summer they have also been invited to perform at Knockanstockan festival in Ireland."

FRENETICS' sound is an assault on the senses. They combine heavy riffs, noisy textured soundscapes and poetic storytelling to take listeners and audience members on a sonic journey filled with their hopes, dreams and future ambitions. This is achieved via deployment of a thundering rhythm section, walls of squealing feedback & extensive use of effects pedals, all of which underpin a healthy respect for the good old-fashioned art of songwriting. Big choruses are certainly not in short supply.

Their debut EP "The Broken Hand"? - released on June 11 through Spotify, Amazon & iTunes as well as hard copies.

Review quotes -

regarding song 'Hypocrite' -
'I would love to hear this with full studio production but on vinyl. It has a swirling surf-pop ambience that could work -oddly enough- in a really dark film.' - UnderABanner

regarding song 'Years'
'This is sick! Got all the elements you'd want, really good tune!'
BlueField

'They blend beautiful guitar rhythms and husky vocals, with funky bass and piercing lead guitar parts that really make you sit up and pay attention - With a host of tunes that vary in range and style, they really have something, while remaining faithful to the indie pop they love making.

The lyrics of the frontman echo the Manchester 'Hacienda' bands of the 90's and the camaraderie is clear for all to see, their live show is something not to be missed.

They're currently recording their debut EP.

Formed from the ashes of teenage musical endeavours in their hometown of Warrington, Videowax emerge as a noticeably matured outfit of talented musicians. Coming from an unmistakably alt-rock vista, the band assert their idiosyncratic character through a fusion of lead guitar driven textures and blues punch; permeated with haunting atmospheric qualities and actuate and propulsive rhythm ensemble. The band forwards an assortment of influences creating their own eclectic and affecting approach
