Shortlisted in 2017 by the Manchester Evening News as one of Manchester’s Best Breakthrough Artists, Glossop’s Larkins have rapidly made a name for themselves amongst both fans and critics alike. Partly due to their eschewing of indie-rock swagger, instead harbouring a sleek and easy-going pop sensibility, and partly due to their effortless amalgamation of indie-pop, funk and blues.
Kick-starting the year with a support slot at the much-lauded Deaf Institute, the band quickly found themselves playing to bigger venues to larger audiences, culminating in a sold out single launch at Manchester’s Club Academy. Summer also saw the band take to various festival stages including both Tramlines and Kendal Calling. Now following the recent announcement of their biggest show to date, a headline slot at the 700 cap Gorilla in their home-town of Manchester, Larkins are undoubtedly gearing up to make 2017 their biggest yet.
LARKINS ARE: Josh Noble – Vocals & Guitar Dominic Want – Guitar & Vocals Henry Beach – Bass & Vocals Joe Stott – Drums
Cosmo Calling are an alternative indie rock band based in central Manchester. After meeting at the Royal Northern College of Music, vocalists Phoebe Taylor and Harry Preen, guitarist Darragh Burke, bassist Tom Chapman and drummer Gabriel Alexander are fast becoming fixtures of the city's indie circuit. With a creative mix of addictive melodies and heartfelt lyricism, Cosmo Calling are some of Manchester's most compelling, fresh talent.
They have supported acts such as Noasis at a sold out Manchester show, had extensive radio play, performed at various different festivals including Door 2 Door Festival and Bourne Beer Festival as well as performing a 10 date tour last year.
They are in the process of being signed to New Street Records which is the first entirely student-run non profit record label whose vision is to create a student revolution in being the market leaders developing and launching student talent. The directors of the label were awarded the Points of Light award for Volunteering by the Prime Minister.
