The incredible KATIE COOPER is launching her debut EP at Rough Trade this Sunday. The lead single ‘Fading’ is a proper sultry, moody pop song with a beaut electronic undertone. We’re looking forward to hearing some more beautifully produced recordings.

Support comes from, Punky Folk inspired singer songwriter GEORGE GADD. His ‘Better Shape’ EP came out at the start of the year and takes proper emosh, heartfelt lyrics and makes them fantastically upbeat.

Artist and producer, Izaak Lowe also known as GRAPEICECREAM makes Hip-Hop inspired Electronica with an almost Jazz tone. ‘Funk It Up’ has a great groove to it whereas ‘Autumn Leaves’ has a proper Psychedelic feel.
