Creating music out of thin air is pure magic. When you get into it you just can’t stop… Plastic Barricades got that virus in 2007 and are still driven by the thought of sharing the passion with the World and fascinated by the power of the sound waves.
Inspired and influenced by almighty Radiohead, Oasis, Coldplay, Muse, Keane, Razorlight, Nirvana and many others, Plastic Barricades love to experiment with styles, sounds and approach. Romantic and honest, gloomy and curious, melodic and odd, they ask questions and try to find the answers. And yes – they really believe in changing the world and making things happen!
Slowglass formed in April 2011 (originally under the name ‘Boddicker’), with ex-members of No Hope Astronaut & Victory Red joining forces to create a modern take on the 90’s Alternative sound, easiest (laziest) described as ‘Infinity Land era Biffy meets Mellon Collie era Pumpkins’.
In Spring 2012 the band released their debut album “Smoke Clouds” on iTunes and limited edition physical copies (now sold out). Recorded on a shoestring budget at 360 Studios in Parson’s Green, mixed at 13 Studios in Clapham and mastered by Ed Woods, the album showcased the band’s melodic, hook-laden and memorable sound.
After an extended Summer break in 2012, the band returned to the studio and a new 4-track EP was released in Spring 2013. Self-engineered and produced, the record retains the original elements of Slowglass’ sound, but presents more refined and mature songwriting.
dds is a band fronted by former Apartment guitarist. After a string of solo gigs, he has transformed his new project into a full band. Honest, vital and wanted for the murder of a Pat Benatar song.
The Ruse are a five piece rock band from Watford. Formed in 2011 the band have been combining influences ranging from rock, reggae, jazz, funk and dance music to create a unique and exciting sound that audiences admire. Their blend of smooth basslines, creative guitar lines, frantic rhythms and cryptic vocals make for an inspiring musical experience.
After a brief hiatus over the summer months, The Ruse will be bringing in the winter with a harder edged, darker sound. Not to be missed!
