Self Esteem

As Self Esteem, Rebecca Taylor has shaken off the shackles of her indie band past to become the unapologetic pop star she always wanted to be. Her second album Prioritise Pleasure arrived as one of 2021’s most anticipated releases, praised for its fearless ability to tackle important issues around female autonomy, comparison culture and self love, its intimate, confessional and witty lyricism and anthemic maximalist pop rhythms.

Walt Disco

Blending a cacophony of sounds ranging from new wave and glam rock to queer modern  art-pop, the Glasgow-based Walt Disco‘s youthful songs are as much dancefloor fillers as they  are anthemic earworms. With a penchant for memorable songs which resonate across  generations, vocalist and band leader James Potter writes earnest lyrics about self exploration and love in the digital age.   

English Teacher

Yorkshire indie quartet English Teacher skillfully weave between indie-rock and dreampop, while blending deadpan storytelling with super-sharp instrumentation. For Fans of of knotty, dense lyrics and thrilling hooks.

Luke Royalty

Hailing from Darlington, Luke Royalty came from a creative family of artists and musicians. He, however, avoided dabbling in music until his late teens, preferring to spend his time playing Sunday League football and following his beloved Darlington FC. Upon finding influence in the likes of Mike Skinner, Mac Miller and Frank Ocean, Luke got drawn into the culture of turning his words to music and the rest is history in the making. 


The indie sparkle of Hartlepool’s Marketplace is infectious in a quirky and delightfully free sounding way. With twinkling guitar passages and gorgeous choral vocals, the band sound like a warm hug from an old friend.

Mr Matthew Fisher

This Manchester-based pop rock artist honours his Darlington roots (kinda) with his visit back to Teesside to delight audiences with smooth, talkative tunes that celebrate the simple things in life, like human connection and conversation.

Pave the Jungle

Pave The Jungle is an alternative rock band based in Newcastle Upon Tyne.

The Shakin’ Nightmares

The Shakin’ Nightmares started playing live in April 2018, and their energetic live performances earned them high profile slots in 2019 as the band played to packed venues supporting Electric Six and Vegas rockers The Delta Bombers. During the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020, the band had a lineup change and a redirection of style, adding more fuzzy garage elements to their rock & roll sound. They are currently recording their debut album.

Line-ups are subject to change.
