King Nun 

For the band that started as schoolfriends, King Nun have been on a long road. Consisting of Theo Polyzoides(vocals and guitar), James Upton (guitar), Nathan Gane (bass) and Caius Stockley-Young (drums), what would later become an official band started as friends bonding over their shared love of bands off the beaten path, from Richard Hell and Television to Sonic Youth and Pixies. Ethan Stockley-Young (bass VI, percussion) would later join the ranks completing the band’s line-up. On this foundation, they built their own off-kilter indie-punk hybrid, exhibited on 2019’s Mass, cited by NME as ‘brutal and brilliant’ and DIY as ‘a sound to be reckoned with’. The band have built an impressive live reputation too, listing headline tours in Europe and the US, with Rolling Stone naming them ‘Best Rock Newcomers’ at Bonnaroo, and supporting artists including Foo Fighters, Black Flag and Gang of Youths.
