“Spellbinding… anthemic songs” – THIS FEELING
“A bit special. Love the tune” – BBC INTRODUCING
“Heart-wrenching tunes that will stop you in your tracks” – THE ZINE
“Catchy hooks and furious rhythms” – GIGSLUTZ
Drawn together by music that is as eclectic as it is themed, The Institutes are a thoughtful and innovative quartet. Melodic, energetic, peaceful and furious in their exploration of love, life and the social structures that bind us as much as they divide us. The Institutes seek textures in their hooks and rhythm in their wrath. Drawing from the traditions of English sounding melodic guitar based bands, their set is front-loaded with the most creative songs, but the entire track listing stays sincere. Moments feel appropriately urgent, whilst almost immediately becoming intimate and brazenly honest.
Anhedonia are a 4 piece Rock & Roll band from Blackburn, Lancashire. Made up of Ben Kirton (Vocals/Guitar), Chris Hinnigan (Vocals/Guitar), Phil McNally (Bass Guitar) & Steve Smith (Drums).
This is Segarra. Based in the East Midlands, they curve the sound of modern and classic rock and roll, twisting it to create their own unique sound.
Influenced by greats such as The Beatles, Sex Pistols, The Jam, Oasis, The Strokes and many more, it’s clear to see their ambition.
Fronted by lead singer Oli Wade, with lead guitarist Luke Hooton, rhythm guitarist Josh Holloway, bassist Liam Cox and Callum Friend on the drums, they released their first single “Sugarcane”, which was then followed with the euphoric second single “Shine A Light (On Me)”.
Following the much talked about “year that never was” for many in the music industry, Segarra are about to release their newest single “A Million Times Before” on 3rd September 2021.
