4 piece KAVES, featuring lead singer Caitlin Mapes, guitarist Tim Frost, bass player Mia Webster and drummer Matt Dove formed in May 2018. In the months since, the band have released 3 singles 'TBT', 'Serotonin' and 'Grow Up', which have all had repeated plays on BBC Introducing in Norfolk, and have supported Souer, Dirty Nil and Pessimist in that time, along with several headline shows and festival slots. 2019 has been a great year for the band. In June the band won the prestigious 'Festival Too' Battle Of The Bands competition, which will see them perform to an expected 10,000 people on the last night of the festival in Kings Lynn. The band utilise multiple genres to get their songs across, including ska, pop, funk, hard rock, and hip hop, and have been likened to bands and acts from Incubus to Lana Del Ray. The band put the attention firmly onto their songwriting and high energy live shows, and are firmly focused on what will be an exciting end to 2019.
5 piece Telling Truths have been gaining admirers of their hard hitting alternative brand of rock since releasing debut EP 'Desires & Visions' in 2018. The release of new single 'We Are Just A Memory' and accompanying video in March 2019, exposed the band to many new followers, and this was backed up with a packed out release show for latest EP 'In My Mind' at The Waterfront Studio in Norwich. Influenced by bands such as You Me At Six, Don Broco, PVRIS and Marmozets, the bands hard edged sound is complemented perfectly by the powerful vocals of lead singer Georgi Baller, and has led to appearances on BBC Introducing in Norfolk, many live gigs and festival appearances, including a support slot with British alt rock favourites Vukovi.
Fusing funk and hard rock riffs with hip hop vocals, 4 piece Smoking Mirrors smashed onto the scene in 2018, and released their debut singe 'Money Man' to great acclaim in September of that year. The follow up single 'Vigilantes' was crowned BBC Radio Norfolk's record of the week, and received multiple plays across the BBC Radio Norfolk network. Taking influence from Red Hot Chill Peppers, Fall Out Boy and Rage Against The Machine, the band has founded their growing reputation on their catchy songs, massive grooves and intense live shows. Not to be missed!
Norwich based Settlem3nt bring raw crushing sounds, reminiscent of 90's grunge bands such as Alice In Chains and Nirvana, combined with hugely memorable hooks and choruses. Known for their intense and passionate live shows, the reputation of the band as a 'must see' live act is growing fast.
