‘Swear I’m Good At This’ is the first full-length from the band and accumulates their tenacity for crafting life-affirming, relatable tales with a gutsy heart at their core. Luciano has the ability to write lyrics that are both vulnerable and badass, perfecting a storm of emotive reflection that creates a vision of a sweaty, pumped-up room screaming these lines in unison. Diet Cig make it okay to be the hot mess that you are.
SNAILS generate moments of suburban guitar pop reverie for lonely people walking to the shops. Formed after a friend's request to soundtrack a budget slasher involving a homicidal nun, their sound bears the influence of mavericks such as Basil Kirchin, Syd Barrett and Nico.
“This is vocal harmonising at its exquisite expert best.” – Fresh On The Net Faves, BBC 6 Music blog
Hailing from the Northern, Southern and Western parts of Norway, the now Liverpool-based trio I SEE RIVERS creates an organic musical landscape they’ve dubbed ”Float Folk”. With memorable melodies and untraditional harmonies their soundscape can be associated with artists such as Fleet Foxes, Sufjan Stevens and Feist. After releasing their single “Loved Ones” and touring the rural parts of Norway, playing festivals such as Belladrum (Scotland), Green Man (Wales) and Malakoff (NO), the girls did their biggest tour to date supporting Newton Faulkner all around the UK and are now preparing for this summer’s festival season with great festivals to be released. The girls have also recorded and produced their debut EP being released April 2017 with the lead single ‘DA RUM’.
“Their music is delicate Folk Pop based around clever vocal arrangements, and outstanding vocals. They just look so natural performing together, and have a level of cohesion that is genuine, rare and pretty special too». - Nordic Music Review
“Perhaps the hottest prospect from Norway’s consistent excellent outpouring of specially tender bands, this now UK-based trio make the kind of indefinable Scandinavian magic that instantly catches the eyes and ears. Part-folk, part swooning pop songs.” – Green Man Festival 2016.
