Event Details


Empathy Test is an independent London electronic pop duo consisting of childhood friends Isaac Howlett (vocals) and Adam Relf (production). Inspired by ’80s Sci-Fi soundtracks, ’90s guitar bands and underground UK dance music, the pair have an uncanny ability to write catchy pop tunes with intelligent, emotional lyrics and marry them to stunning, cinematic soundscapes you can lose yourself in.

Clash described their music as “gorgeous, sumptuous futurepop”, while Line of Best Fit said it “wouldn’t sound out of place snaking into the soundtrack of Netflix’s Stranger Things”. Empathy Test performs live with the help of Christina Lopez on drums and Samuel Winter-Quick on keys.


From Canada - ACTORS blew the roof off at Infest last year. They electrify with a modern take on post-punk, despite influences from Bowie, Joy Division etc, they remain fresh and urgent, their music stands on it's own, full of life and unforgettable hooks! Post punk never sounded so good!
