Olympians are a music band that started in a basement in Norwich around two years ago with a guitar, bass, some drums, and a song about the board-game Risk. Now equipped with another guitar, two keyboards, a glockenspiel, a trumpet and four bellowing voices, Olympians just keep on growing. Their sound has moved from twiddly guitar-pop to brass-infused synth-drenched megatunes, exploring everything from drones to barbershop harmonies along the way.
“Lighthearted and exciting…calamitous yet incredibly tight.” – Drowned in Sound
“Mathy pop music at its most glorious, hipshaking, best.” – The 405
Inca Hoots take a fresh and intelligent approach to songwriting with the understanding that you, the listener deserve more than one “sound” replicated from track to track.
“Inca Hoots are a four-piece hailing from Worcester. They combine a number of different influences and genres to create a unique take on the indie genre, incorporating everything from electronica to samba! Their debut album, Creatures, is a jaw-dropping release.” – Rhythm & Booze
The Joy Of Sex are a brand new group, featuring ex-members of Midlands’ bands KGB Slideshow (championed by Alan McGee (Creation Records / Poptones), The Guardian, 6Music and BBC Radio 1) and Evilwitch (saluted most recently by BBC Hereford & Worcester, Joyzine and Sonic Mouth).
“The Joy Of Sex are one of the most refreshing and promising bands to hail from Hereford and Worcester. Bringing to mind the likes of The Young Knives and British Sea Power, whilst unmistakably in a league of their own.” – The Task In Hand
