2017 Line-Up

2017 Line-Up in Alphabetical Order…

amelia coburn
Amelia Coburn: Incredibly talented singer-songwriter who, armed with her ukulele, has picked up plaudits from the likes of BBC Introducing and BBC Radio 2.
avalanche party
Avalanche Party: one of the countries most explosive live acts. A ferocious garage rock assault on the sense. Unstoppable.
Bossy Love
Bossy Love: equal parts hip-hop, pop and r’n’b, these Glaswegians know how to get a party started. See you on the dancefloor.

Cape Cub: hype-machine chart topping indie popster who’s latest single ‘Flowers’ showcases his uncanny knack for big, big hooks.
club paradise
Club Paradise: First ever gig from these ex-members of Street Party In Soho. Expect big indie-dance-floor anthems.
colour of spring
Colour Of Spring: shoegaze darlings of the NME whose brooding sound earns comparisons to the likes of My Bloody Valentines and Jesus & Mary Chain.
Desperate Journalist: these Fierce Panda signings play the kind of post-punk that actually means something.
Dream Wife - Hollie Fernando
Dream Wife: “Icelandic-Brightonian three piece Dream Wife have been making a name for themselves as one of the most promising bands of the year. Uncompromising and dripping with a spangled punk attitude, they continue to solidify this reputation with their second EP, Fire.” The Line Of Best Fit
dylan cartlidge
Dylan Cartlidge: newly signed to Universal and with all the coolest blogs in the world already singing his praises, Dylan is definitely ‘one to watch’. Think Outkast meets The Black Keys.
eat fast
Eat Fast: “Swirling guitar lines you can sing along to within seconds; screeches of feedback that hit like a gut-punch; scuzzy, buried-in-the-mix vocal hooks that lodge themselves in your cranium on their first outing. Get on board with this lot now – by summer’s end they’ll be echoing around every chaotic house party worth its weight in booze.” DIY
eve conway
Eve Conway: Selected to open the Townhouse by BBC Tees DJ Bob Fischer, Eve’s haunting and ethereal vocals are both mesmerising and heart warming.
Figmennt: scuzzy heartfelt indie rock at its best. Urusei Yatsura for the 21st century.
hayley mckay
Hayley McKay: awesome melodic country pop from this fast rising North East star
island club
Island Club: Upbeat, dance-infused indie-pop from this Brighton-based four-piece who have been creating quite a stir in their native region. With their hook-laden anthems and charismatic frontman the band could be set to follow in the path of the The 1975 and Tame Impala.
jake houlsby
Jake Houlsby: Jake counts BBC Radio 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne as one of his biggest fan and that’s more than enough of an endorsement for us! Brilliant singer-songwriter ala Nick Drake and Iron & Wine.
james leonard hewitson
James Leonard Hewitson: quirky tracks from the legend that is James Leonard Hewitson, who returns to Twisterella after previously performing as part of Kingsley Chapman & The Murder’s band.
Jister: as seen touring with Scroobius Pip, awesome hip-hop from the heart of the Boro.
jordan allen
Jordan Allen: Fast-rising Jordan Allen, arrives in town with a powerful live show and a burgeoning reputation. This is indie guitar rock that’s reminiscent of The Jam and Jake Bugg – sharp and with the attitude to match.
josh wantie
Josh Wantie: UK festival debut appearance from the hugely talented South African singer-songwriter, the Durban-born Josh Wantie [pronounced Von-Tee], who brings his ultra-catchy, melodic pop to Twisterella.
Kyko: Hotly tipped electro-indie singer-songwriter from London. As seen on BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend.
Life press shot
LIFE: Fresh from Leeds & Reading and touring with Slaves, we can’t get enough of their debut album ‘Modern Music’.
Llovers: charming indie pop from the banks of the Tees.
Low Island: Fans of Twisterella alumni Plastic Mermaids won’t want to miss Low Island. Impossible to categorise, could they be the next great Oxford band after Radiohead?
Neon Waltz: Hailing from the deepest, darkest most northerly point of the UK, the young group honed their majestic sound in an abandoned cottage, where they recorded a set of demos that would draw the interest of former Oasis Manager Marcus Russell. Neon Waltz have been named one of the finest new British bands of the year by the likes of Q, NME (“Scotland’s coolest new gang”) and Shortlist to name a few… and this is just the beginning…
Noemie Wolfs
Noemie Wolfs: We’re delighted to be hosting a ‘secret’ pop-up session from this incredibly talented Belgian singer… her first live appearance in the UK no less!
Outlya: Uber-melodic and upbeat, swaggering indie-pop from the hugely talented and hotly-tipped London-based trio. Expect a soaring set packed full with future anthems.
para alta
Para Alta: Hartlepool indie kids with a full arsenal of huge anthems. Sing your hearts out for the lads.
pip blom
Pip Blom: Full band show from the Amsterdam-based, 20 year old Pip Blom, who writes, records and releases her own indie-pop tunes with a twist. Marc Riley was so impressed by Pip’s wonky pop tunes that he invited her in to record a live studio session. One to watch.
pronto mama
Pronto Mama: Glasgow’s past post-modern bug-eyed beatnik group bring their intelligent, catchy indie anthems to Twisterella. The band count the Fatherson boys as huge fans and that’s some recommendation.
ridley woof
Ridley Woof: Quirky and eccentric tales of modern life, as heard on BBC Radio 6 Music.
Skinny Girl Diet1-2017-Credit-Katinka-Herbert

the ninth wave
The Ninth Wave: The Ninth Wave are a noise pop four piece from Glasgow influenced by 80s new wave and goth pop music creating their own unique identity. Brooding synths, jagged guitars and female against male vocals carve this sound. They have been compared to the likes of Pixies and The Cure.

The Old Pink House: Newcastle-based 4-piece who have burst on the scene in 2017 with their infectious melodies which stray into psychedelic territory.
