Citadels is the shiny you discover in your sticker pack, the rare card in a collectible card game. You want it. You dream of possessing it, even if only to sell it on for profit. Levels. With a storming set at Brighton’s Great Escape they were chosen as support at Joy Formidable’s sold out Borderline show on the 8th June and booked for the up and coming Standon Calling festival on the 31st July. With the single on the way 2009 is shaping up to be a great year for these fantasy pop starlings…
The debut single, Golden Islands, will be released on the 27th July on Friends vs Records.

Mitsubishis, their name, a cheeky nod to the high-speed thrill of the racing-car scene as well as the psychadelic hedonism of 90's club culture, is a metaphor for their own style of party-fuelled, high-energy music, which they call “dark party rock pop”. The Mitsubishis have taken the pop route, but keep it dangerous with a fusion of 80's rock-style vocals, abstract bass, moody, layered guitar riffs and heady drum beats, that could be compared to a “finely-tuned acid trip”. The Mitsubishis have been influenced by Queens of the Stone Age, Zeppelin, Happy Mondays, the Stone Temple Pilots and the Beatles and have played in gigs across the UK, from Brighton to Scotland.

FranKo formed in October 2007 and have already made their mark on the London music scene, turning the heads of audiences and a lot of people in the industry. They’ve been gigging in and around London including at The Indig02 @ the O2, playing to a crowd of over a thousand. FranKo also toured Thailand last summer, and grabbed great attention from the press and radio media as well as appearing live on MTV.
Currently working on their debut album with Jim Lowe (recent producer for Stereophonics) and Dario Dendi (who has worked with The Killers, Oceansize, Franz Ferdinand) which is due out early 2010.

RedTrack were born late in 2006 and quickly the band were “discovered” by London management/ production company Northern Blue Music. The band's second release, the EP Wait Around/Miss You Not, released July 2008, has been featured on Zane Lowe's “Fresh Meat”, and been championed by Colin Murray of Radio One and again by Steve Lamacq on 6 Music. Billy has also performed an acoustic session for Kerrang Radio.
RedTrack sold out both of their single launch parties at Dublin Castle in Camden last Summer. Since this release, they have gone on to play supports with Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly, do a 5 day tour of Scotland to rave reviews and play an acoustic session on Talk 107 FM.

La Valliere 4 piece from London providing listeners a unique blend of indie/electro/rock, demo EP “Garret Songs” is avialiable now.
