Fuelled by a strong DIY ethic, their love of hip-hop & 90s pop culture, masked London Hip-Hop collective, Glitter Thief have come together to deliver tracks with a strong emphasis on storytelling from their unique perspective of the world.
Consisting of Frankie From The N.E. on vocals and JMEHWRD on live drums and production, the 2-piece bring a diverse show mashed up with laid-back beats, big hooks, and full-on punk energy.
The Flixx is a new 3 piece punk/pop girlband from London and Sheffield, currently making real waves in the music industry. Inspired by bands like ‘The Runaways’, the band has been described as ‘The Spice Girls’ meets the ‘The Slits’. Each have their own unique character within the band and all come with larger than life personalities. Performing their very relatable and catchy songs in their very distinctive British accents; the combination is an undeniable audible and visual feast.
Individually, the girls go by the names of Pony (lead guitar/vocal), Trixx (bass guitar/vocal) and Red (drums/vocal). They write all their own music and are published by BMG. With great success, they have recently supported Marc Almond on his ‘Hits and Pieces’ tour playing venues like Camden’s Roundhouse. Live, they are incredibly infectious and energetic. Among many rule-breaking ambitions, the biggest is to carve their own lane, be inspiring and promote female empowerment in the process and to make a change in the industry, showing that girls can rock too!
8/89 are hybrid of synths, guitar riffs and sentimentalism. Hailing from London, Jack (born in '88) and Michael (born in '89), began carving out a space between synth-pop and psychedelic rock, creating a sonic landscape with no boundaries. The duo met when they both were trying to start again creatively - Jack, after leaving Sissy and the Blisters, and Michael, after leaving his acting career behind. Once Jack played some of his music to Michael in a car, they grew from there and quickly realized that they are like Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire, yin and yang. While their unique sound is redolent of bands like MGMT, Vampire Weekend, Tame Impala, The Cure, and The Temper Trap, 88/89 also pull influence from artists such as Lou Reed, My Bloody Valentine, Simply Red, and Primal Scream.
Shayanne is a London-born mixed-genre singer and songwriter. From the young age of 6, she found comfort in writing about the world around her as a way to have control in a space that offered none. She has always found solace in the escape into new worlds, from film, t.v and books. Since then, Shayanne has grown to become a songwriter that uses the stimulus around her to help inform the songs she writes.
Shayanne’s sound is one that consumes the myriad of stories woven through the world around her from t.v, film and her own life, and expresses them in her own form.
Nic Bennett returns to the Half Moon after the Guy Davis tour stopped in Putney, when he opened for the NYC Bluesman across the UK
