Tangerinecat – Ukraine/UK
Stunning lead hurdy-gurdy with effect pedals, fierce yet tender vocals, personal political lyrics, floaty flutes, massive drone bass and DIY samples seamlessly combine with industrial-rave beats in an utterly captivating show.
The nomadic duo tAngerinecAt was formed in 2008 in Ukraine as a collaboration between Ukrainian Eugene Purpurovsky and English Paul Chilton. Inspired by their studies, travels and music experiences in remote parts of the Carpathian Mountains, their music has also absorbed different forms of Ukrainian and Soviet counterculture.
They have four independently released, successfully selling albums that have had airplay on BBC 2, BBC 3 and BBC 6. The band has toured internationally in Ukraine, UK and Russia
🌟“tAngerinecAt brought not just synth to the table, but a whole range of physical, classical instruments into the mix – most noticeably their use of the hurdy-gurdy, to make their music the deep notes of severe doom and dread that gave it the feeling of a rave in a mausoleum…”- Ben Knight, LEFTLION
🌟”Watch out for: tAngerinecAt… this is some of the most powerful music I have heard in a long time…” – LOUDER THAN WAR
🌟”I’ve never seen someone play a hurdy-gurdy so punk…”
– DEVIL’S DYKE NETWORK
🌟”Tangerinecat exploded into my world and I’m a happier man for it! Awesome energy and multidisciplinary. Myself and the team at New Art Exchange really appreciated your work.”
– Jason Pollitt, NEW ART EXCHANGE
🌟”Album is immense. Exceptional…”
– John Hywel Morris, PRS for Music Senior Membership Development Manager, Wales
🌟“…the most important piece of art you need to navigate these times…” – David Eggleston (Mirrorkill)
La Rissa uk – Leeds
2 misfits making dark spooky synth pop. Featured on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 1 and BBC Introducing.
🌟‘….and she was a bit of a revelation. Early days but big heavy beats and that beautiful soaring vocal left me wanting to find out more…’
– Tony Ereira, Come Play With Me.
🌟‘With dark, brooding synths and a stadium-ready voice, La Rissa could be one to keep an eye on’
– BBC Introducing in West Yorkshire
🌟‘…making her a one-woman band. Impressive, right? She’s inspired by post-punk, and 80’s nostalgia which makes for a really unique, dark sound that I can’t get enough of.’
– Emily Pilbeam, BBC Introducing

Yorkshire Vs Essex – London
Formed in London in 2015, Simon Yorkshire (singer and trombonist), Chris Essex (bassist/effects monger) and Iain Hounslow (flutist/guitarist/synthist) narrate songs from fictional toymakers to Sheffield murderers…with cheeky slices of embellishment. YVE are Influenced by the likes of Robert Wyatt, Current 93, Scott Walker, Miles Davis, Nick Cave, The Residents, Bjork, Death Grips and Iannis Xenakis – without sounding much like any of them…
🌟‘One of the things that intrigued and attracted me to Yorkshire vs ESSEX was the very diverse and unexpected nature of their live set – recalling Gong and early Hawkwind, with sudden electronic dance after trombones and poetry. Great!’
– Donald Strachan from Mad Wasp Radio…
