Penny Eyes Live (Indie)

Penny Eyes Live (Indie)

Penny Eyes aim to deliver all the infatuating riffs, big choruses, punchy guitar tones and alluring basslines that were iconic to their 90’s British pop rock idols such as Oasis and The Verve, combined with a refreshing songwriting style that can only come from growing up in your not so average British seaside town.

The relatable subjects tangled up in each song represents a new generation in today’s complicated society groups. Penny Eyes sing of hope and chaos, of love and loss, all wrapped up in a tightly cohesive outfit. With their unique interpretation of punchy indie rock with the likes of The Kooks and The Strokes that flooded their highly seasonal youth and recent acts like Sam Fender, this year they are set to make waves.

Their second EP 'How Do You Feel?' is OUT NOW with 4 brand new tracks.

FEET plus support

“Wonky Britpop for a new generation.”
-NME

“One of the most deservedly hyped bands around.”
-THE LINE OF BEST FIT

They’re an absolute gem from start to finish.
-DIY MAG

UK band FEET recently announced their highly- anticipated debut album What’s Inside Is More Than Just Ham to be released via their own Clapped Records on August 2nd and as a treat to the SW they will play TWO free shows in Cornwall, and one here at Hillbilly's in Falmouth on Wednesday 21 August

The band also releases a new single from the album, ‘Ad Blue.’ Feet reveal: “It was the first song that really became about rhythm, and creating a more dance-orientated experience for our audiences. It’s also technically about making unsuspecting cups of tea with a diesel additive as a H2O substitute. We all have bad days”.

The single is accompanied by a Wild-West themed video which “hints at the song’s conceptual source” explain the band. “…kettle’s, blue liquid, dancing, whilst also converging with a more general wild west theme about oil men, an idea that Jeep[frontman George] has been juggling around his bizarre head for a while. This sort of responsibility is beneficial for the rest of us because if the video does nothing for us we’ll be happy to send the corporate hounds in his direction”. Watch the video here.

The band’s forthcoming What’s Inside Is More Than Just Ham was produced by Cam Blackwood (Jamie T, London Grammar, Billie Marten etc) and mixed by Alan Moulder (Foals, Interpol, Beach House). The songs on the album were written by the band during their ‘Barn Sessions’, during which the band, in-between festivals and shows this summer, rehearsed and lived in a working barn in the middle of a farm in Bedfordshire. Camping, hanging out with local farmers, and living off the land for six weeks, FEET spent all day and night writing and rehearsing a slew of new songs, which will make up their forthcoming debut.

Ad Blue follows their song ‘English Weather’ which further solidified the bands status as one of the most exciting, quintessentially British guitar bands of recent years. The likes of NME, DIY, Dork, The Independent, Sunday Times, The Line Of Best Fit, Radio 1, Radio X and Radio 6 have shown lots of early support for the band, furthering the buzz around Feet.

Banned FTC are a group of friends that met on the club scene, fronted by the singer, song writer Linamix (Iain Harris) the band has such an uplifting and worldly sound, that feels commercial despite it’s alternative, rock pith.

Their knowledge of knowing what to play and when to play it, has helped shape their ability to write songs that make people want to dance and feel great!

This self-managed, self-funded, truly independent endeavour is driven by a work hard, play hard attitude that is born of innocence and passion.

As a live act they are very polished and full of energy, because let’s face it...

this lot LOVE TO PARTY just as hard, if not harder than you : )
