Polo — music
Yorkshire ​outfit​ Polo (formed of song-writing trio Luke Lount, Kat Mchugh and Daniel Egdell​) might hail from Leeds, but the ​band's glacial atmospherics and lush, r'n'b-tinged pop are an ethereal world away from the spit'n'sawdust DIY scene that the city's best known for.

Formed in 2015, the ​band released hypnotic, woozily seductive debut single 'Visions of Fortune' later that year and racked up performances at annual inner-city festivals Live At Leeds, Tramlines and Long Division, as well as supporting the likes of Bipolar Sunshine and Charlotte OC. ​2017 saw the release of their most instantly catchy and accomplished track to date, 'Gold Horizons'​, After receiving the coveted PRS 'Women make Music'​ grant. Polo later released their debut EP, 'Alice', in March, 2017. Following a string of key radio plays, including Radio 1, Radio 6, XFM and Amazing Radio, Polo completed their first UK tour, selling out small venues across the country. Building upon that success, Polo released the wobbly and woozy 'Zeitgeist' in September, 2017. Exploring a kaleidoscope of exotic sounds, Polo proved their ability to cultivate refined pop bangers. Polo are now set to release a sophomore EP in 2018.

Noisey — «Polo deliver glass-shattering production and coloured with slashes of sparse and beautiful vocals»
Wonderland — «the [trio] specialise in a vaguely RnB inspired sound that marries crisp, intelligent production with a lyrical edge and, of course, McHugh’s strong vocals.»
Indie Shuffle — «Sexy indie electronica that gives the East Coast USA a run for it's money»
CLASH — «glistening gossamer pop»

Back to basics pop duo VIDE0 comprises song writing
partners Alex Brown and Emily Garner, previously of bands
Bathymetry and Prowles.

Operating in Salford, the pair's direct, uptempo, fun pop
music may come as a surprise given the more whimsical
guitar-focused sound of their previous band. However, in
reality it's a logical progression to a more immediate, fully
formed sound, expressed for the most part through
sparkling synths and riff-heavy bass, accompanied by
machine programmed beats and dual vocal melodies.
Comparisons to New Order may appear lazy, but there's a
definite link here to the city's lineage of bass-driven synth
pop and post-punk.

N /\ L /\ in November 2017, has only just begun their musical journey but is already making waves in the Leeds electronica scene, having already been featured in Birthday Cake For Breakfast and Clue Records 'Top Tracks of 2k17' lists and making passionate steps to push the Girls To The Front movement.

An alchemist of remorseless beats, jarring basslines, and sprinkled with lyrics preaching truths of mental health and injustice — its creepy, its gritty, its fearless and relentless; and unapologetically so.
