Glass Host is a partnership of 5 individuals hailing from Romania, New Zealand, London, the NORTH and even Bournemouth. This diversity is expressed in their eclectic portfolio of songs which can go from a serene dreamscape to something resembling a plane spiraling through turbulence. Vocals soar and scream, Guitars shimmer and snarl, keys can rise like a wave or fall like rain, while the bass and drums will either demand dancing, or pin you up against the back wall. Regardless of the style, their mission statement is to always write catchy, memorable and diverse songs that showcase what they all enjoy doing.

are Scratchy label boss Simon’s electric power trio, worshipping at the altars of Husker Du, The Only Ones, Dinosaur Jr, Teenage Fanclub, Buffalo Tom and other melodic rockers equally obsessed by songs, songwriting and the euphoria associated with playing music through amplified electronic equipment. New cassette / download single ‘I Remember’ released August 14th on Scratchy.
"Bromide’s spiky punk-pop is similarly literate but considerably tighter. A fusion of Husker Du, The Replacements and Elvis Costello, their set is stuffed full of hook sand melodies that are impossible to ignore, or get out of your head for days.” Nightshift

Eddy Wright
is one part Eddie Cochran, 200ml Buddy Holly and 4kg dream-implanted chord sequences. Mix together and place in time-proof dish in oven for several decades then serve like Roger Federer towards unprotected Simon Cowell ballboy.

Partisan Waves are box fresh ! Formed earlier this year in deepest South East London / Kent and united by a shared love of bands from both sides of the pond (no, not the Thames Estuary..) including Dinosaur Jr, The Smiths, The Jam, Early Elvis Costello, The dBs, Built to Spill and Pavement.
