» H-PRODUCTIONS PRESENTS KYKO £10
Age restriction 14+
KYKO headlines our night and is here to test the limits of pop. Born from a desire to move away from the confines of standard 'singer-songwriter' conventions and connotations, Scott Verrill, the 20-year-old talent behind the project, looks to forge his own path in the world.
South London-born and raised Verrill, a multi-instrumentalist with a feverish passion for experimenting, has been crafting noise since reaching his teens. Raised in a household rife with the sounds of Paul Simon and British bands like The Jam, Verrill strives to combine his musical background with his passion for modern pop music and it’s ever-evolving form.
The London/Brighton 5 piece SAHARA have gained some serious attention in recent times and will be main support to KYKO. Debut EP ‘Amour’ partnered a debut nationwide tour in early 2016. With lead single ‘Green Light’ hitting over 22k views in just a few months of its release. ‘Described as like Foals on anti-depressants’, their math rock sound allows for soaring choruses and catchy hooks.
Next on the bill we have The New Coast, an East London based duo Nick Blyth and Chris Cheater who effortlessly create infectious and euphoric Indie pop gems. Born from an infatuation with American cinema and pop culture, The New Coast have created their own distinct style of pure Indie Pop. Their 'Paraga Beach' EP oozes Americana vibes and smoky undertones and encapsulates late summer nights with ease. Prepare to escape real life and become part of a 360 degree cinematic experience!
Completing our line up is the extraordinary Joe Jury. Inspired by various types of music and artists such as Neil Young, Van Morrison and Bob Dylan, Joe Jury came to finding his own way of writing melodies and arrangements. Acoustic guitar arpeggios, synths, and electronic sounds clash together throughout the EP to create an interesting and different, yet easy sound. A sound that perfectly marries and enhances his unique voice and that got him a slot at this year’s Kendal Calling Festival.
