Polo – music
Yorkshire trio Polo (formed of vocalist Kat McHugh, Synth man Luke Lount and Drummer Dan Egdell) might hail from Leeds, but the groups glacial atmospherics and lush, r’n’b-tinged pop are an ethereal world away from the spit’n’sawdust DIY scene that the city’s best known for.
Formed in 2015, the band released hypnotic, woozily seductive debut single ‘Visions Of Fortune’ later that year and racked up performances at annual inner-city festivals Live At Leeds, Tramlines and Long Division, as well as supporting the likes of Bipolar Sunshine and Charlotte OC. After receiving the coveted PRS ‘Women make Music’ grant, Polo released their debut EP, ‘Alice’ in March 2017 via AWAL.

“Polo deliver glass-shattering production and coloured with slashes of sparse and beautiful vocals – Noisey
“glistening gossamer pop” – CLASH
Hailing from the outskirts of Manchester, Ambiere brings something different to the table with their chilled, ambient vibes.
Originally fronted by the song writing partnership of Amber Lane-McIvor and Jake Blythe, the two could be classed as Manchester’s answer to the XX – creating what they call “fairytale grunge, with a jellybean peanut butter finish’’.
The later arrival of Oliver Lamb saw the introduction of creative instrumentation in the form of electronic drums and a wealth rolling synth lines – the foundation of their live performances.
Layers of indie-pop guitar riffs and catchy vocal hooks create something truly unique. Having already supported the likes of Vogue Dots and Lovestarrs and an abundance of material ready for release, the future looks bright for the youthful three piece as they continue to build upon their name and reputation.
