* Back by popular demand! *

Leisure Tank are a London-based, female-led indie-rock PowerDuo from Berlin, with  K.C. McKanzie on electric guitar/vocals and Budi on drums.

Their song ‘Isabella’, a swirling rock tune full of jealousy and obsession was chosen by ‘FreshOnTheNet’ as a favourite and described as “gripping indie rock at its best” as well as being compared to PJ Harvey’s “Rid of Me”.

“The duo lay down aprogressively energetic set. They bounce between loudly powerful and quietly intimate almost effortlessly, bringing to mind the ever influential Leslie Feist in the process” – hiddentracks.com

The duo has been praised for their danceable rhythms combined with K.C.’s strong vocals and the duo’s love for unpredictable song structures and endings. Leisure Tank’s minimalistic approach is refreshing in times of an overflow of stage gadgets, laptops and effects.

“Leisure Tank have given us a reminder of what music is all about” – 10/10 album review – INFRARED MAGAZINE

Support from The Baskervilles + Saltfen

The Baskervilles are a four piece band hailing from Ipswich, Suffolk.

Following on from a string of shows across the UK that lead to a BBC Introducing in Suffolk showcase, The Baskervilles took a step back from the spotlight and into the studio. After a year of writing and recording the band have reinvented their sound, creating a blend of raw indie-rock energy, hip-hop influenced grooves and 8-bit madness.

Their new single Death of a Pop Song is scheduled for release in early May.

 

Saltfen are a four-piece alternative rock band from Ely. The band members are Tom Woolner, Alec Woolner, Tom Hall, John Kirby, and they have been together since 2012. They list their influences as including The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, Kings of Leon, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Vaccines, and Bloc Party.
