8th February / Doors @ 7:30pm

Grymm - Brighton energetic indie-grunge hybrid with all the catchiness of pop. Synths ring out over fuzzed-up bass, sharp blows of frenzied cymbals and hits of percussion cut deep within the ensuing rage of guitar noise. The band have created a cacophony of sound, yet they still intrinsically maintain a strict grip on melody and vocal hooks

Dolls - "Sharp-edged guitar lines and pounding drums, there's a faint edge of the gothic to DOLLS, a sense that they walk on the dark side of the road.”
– Clash Magazine

DOLLS' own brand of infectious grunge-punk is fuelled by Jade (guitar and vocals) and Bel (drums and vocals). Having spent the last year relentlessly gigging in and around the capital DOLLS are now packing out London venues. The 2-piece are already being championed by John Kennedy at Radio X and by BBC Introducing and the band have just recorded with Jim Sclavunos whose production credits alongside being a member of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds and Grinderman, include The Horrors, The Wytches and Du Blonde.

True Valour - True Valour are a new Brighton-based band creating excitement across the local music scene with their catchy melodies & large sound. Combining contemporary rock and synth True Valour deliver ambient, yet powerful & punchy tunes

Stranger Girl - Taking inspiration from the Strokes, Black Honey and Catfish and the Bottlemen, Stranger Girl are a vibrant five-piece with quirky female vocals and shimmering guitar arrangements, aiming to make a big impact as the first act.
