Vortex Floors

North London four-piece Vortex Floors bring classic alternative rock and post-punk energy back to centre stage, with their catchy hooks, funky Hammond-led sound and relentless psychedelic groove.

Their acclaimed debut gig at the Macbeth, Hoxton in August 2023 was followed by a trip to Sanctuary Studios in Watford to record two new tracks – Ocean Girl and Runaway Train. Now available on most major platforms the tracks provide a fitting showcase for the band’s considerable songwriting ability and sound.

The blend of musical influences and innovative approach have created something new and special. Vortex Floors promise to bring raw energy and musicianship to electrify venues near you.

Bear Witness

2 brothers out to cause a stir with as much beautiful noise as possible!

Bear Witness are an Electronic Alt Rock duo comprised of Matt and Alex Georgiou based in Brighton.

Since 2018 they have received support from BBC Radio 1, BBC Intro, Total Rock and much more; with many drawn to the duo’s hook-fuelled melodies and monstrous rhythms. Citing Linkin Park, Highly Suspect & The Weeknd as influences, the pair have stated a desire to create rock that pulls from many outside genres.

Described by the BBC as ‘great music with a huge sound!’

Norwegian Paper Company

Meet Norwegian Paper Company, the post-britpop art rock band that’s setting stages ablaze. This dynamic ensemble draws inspiration from a myriad of musical powerhouses, channeling the spirit of Blur, Feeder, Arctic Monkeys, and the Libertines into a sound uniquely their own.

Their sonic landscape is woven from the finest threads of musical ingenuity, echoing the groove-laden ‘The Magic Whip,’ by Blur, the raw authenticity found in Feeder’s ‘Comfort is Sound,’ and an infusion of the rebellious spirit reminiscent of China’s underground punk and art-rock scene.

The Creature Appeal

The Creature Appeal have evolved massively since their formation in the primordial ooze that was the late 2010’s Birmingham indie landscape. They consist of Nicole Sedgley (Vocals), Campbell Air (Guitar), Conor Sharphouse (Bass) Cath Grove (Keys), and Andy Wilson (Drums).

Their sound is difficult to pin down. Imagine the introspective and melancholy lyrics of Phoebe Bridgers/ Boygenius, paired with soaring, soulful vocals of Florence + The Machine, all backed by 2010’s-esque indie guitars. One thing is for sure; any gig with TCA on the line up will be an emotional rollercoaster.
