Here you have five men, either young-ish or young-once-ish. Each of them has chased the dream, got a glimpse and in one way or another fallen short. Towards the end of 2011 Dead on T.V. decided that being a good band wasn’t good enough. They left behind their one-paced in-and-out pogo-rock and have at least attempted to pen songs that spoke for who they are and what they were: a poorly dressed bunch of men with a penchant for harmony, terrible intentions, strident melodies and guitars, making music that will help you wake up feeling ever so slightly used!
DAD OF THE LONG TOOTH
Dad of the Long Tooth are a London based six piece experimental/alt indie act full of harmonies, melodies, reverb and distortion.
Jain Wells’ musical interests are varied.
Her first love is jazz fusion with its blend of musical genres, complex rhythms and instrumental approach (Pat Metheny, Jeff Lorber).
She is also drawn to the ethereal feel of World Music rooted in various cultures (B-tribe, Thievery Corporation).
Her lyrics are highly influenced by her work as a transpersonal psychologist which is a blend of modern psychology with the wisdom of the Eastern philosophic traditions.
The Hornets are a three piece grungey post-punk band from South-East London, formed in August 2012.
THE NEON ALCHEMYSTS
The Neon Alchemysts are an upcoming indie (with a touch of pop) band based in East London.
Their influences include Bastille, Muse, Florence + the Machine, Two Door Cinema Club and Snow Patrol.
