The Farrows are a band making exciting, raw, anthemic alternative rock music. A blend of stark and intelligent lyrics, infectious riffs and soaring vocal melodies serve to create an electric atmosphere and a stunning sound that has left audiences across London enthused.
A progressive post-hardcore band hailing from Windsor. The band have been through a fair few changes (both members and music) since they began but YWAG have returned with a new formation and some fancy new tracks just waiting to tickle your eardrum.
Fusing the intelligent, articulate songwriting style of bands like The Magnetic Fields and Eels with a modern alternative country sound reminiscent of The Tallest Man on Earth or Bright Eyes, Charlie Davies, 24, calls upon both a grit-toothed growl and yearning melancholy with compelling, heartfelt results.
