The BAD FRIDAY festival returns!
Indian Queens, hailing from Hackney Wick, make music for people of the night. For those who live in a dream like state or those who use the dark to carry out their nefarious habits. The only light in Indian Queens world comes from a flickering street lamp or the dull glow of a mobile phone. It’s the music of Dickens East End before the gentrification. Indian Queens thrive when they are on stage. Their dark, dreamy and hypnotic sounds echo Portishead and Massive Attack mixed with the modern edge and swagger of Warpaint and Radiohead.
Fröst is a Brighton-based collaboration between French-Swedish sound artist Johanna Bramli and Fujiya & Miyagi’s synth player and producer Steve Lewis. For fans of the likes of Broadcast, Silver Apples and Kraftwerk together the duo create angular and electronic music by blending Motorik and hypnotic radiophonics into neatly wrapped often bilingual pop structures

Fake Empire (Portsmouth)
Fake Empire are a three piece post-punk band based in Portsmouth, UK. Their music has been described variously as anthemic, surging and atmospheric.
Hexmaze are Aneta, Alex, Emma, Mel and Sophie – five women brought together from the UK, Sweden, Poland and Mexico to make music that mashes together punk guitars, fuzzed out jams and harmonic chants.
"Hexmaze emerge with a mighty impressive debut single that puts them on the map as a competent new indie act, among the ones to watch. The London-based quintet present the heaviness and the fuzziness of their instrumental strength combined with the harmonious and utterly robust vocal delivery, in a firm fusion impossible to turn a deaf ear to". -Destroy//Exist
At once both recalling the past and proposing the future, Videocean is an idiosyncratic hybrid that melds shoegaze and psychedelic-soul.
"Formed in Peckham, the group fuse psychedelia with soul, pop melodies with the lush, effects-laden sound of shoegaze" - Clash Music
WAHL launched their second single 'Heaven Knows' November 2018 alongside B-side 'T.V.'. Both tracks were premiered on BBC Introducing.
