Phantom are an awesome Canadian/British duo currently making waves on the London music scene. Having released their critically acclaimed album “Smoke & Mirrors” in August this year, this act has been described as “superficially in the same bracket as Goldfrapp, La Roux and Florence & The Machine”, whilst in fact showing them all “exactly how to construct a beautiful, modern electronic album”. Presenting a combination of ethereal vocals and lush e-bowed guitars over a dense treated background, their soundscape is original and enchanting – it’s even been suggested that listening to them is the aural equivalent of watching a David Lynch film.
Josh Bray is a 26 old singer songwriter from London. A relative newcomer to both the London scene and music having come late to the guitar at the age of about 21. Heavily influenced by the British folk revivalist movement of the 60’s and 70’s, his music has been compared to Nick Drake, Jose Gonzales, Jack Johnson and John Martyn among others. He is currently getting ready to record his first EP.
Starlings are a four piece from Sheffield who since their formation last year have managed to produce “pretty darn epic dancefloor-electronica ala Delphic, while further tunes splashed with heavier wavings of guitars, like ‘Club Scene’, echo the band’s more quirky, alternative sound, ala The Automatic if fronted by Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy”.
THE BUDDA CAKES
The Budda Cakes are an established band on the London scene, having shared stages with Lykke Li, Kate Nash, Soko, Metronomy, Grace Jones and Robots In Disguise Musically, they combine “more creative artistry and freewheeling melodic depth than a fair few bands currently receiving accolades and plaudits”. The Budda Cakes will make you happy, make you smile, make you want go tell the world about their alternative take on modern music.
