Dilettante is the art-pop brain-child of multi-instrumentalist Francesca Pidgeon. Live shows are a genre-phobic loop-fest, featuring everything from fuzzy guitar licks to 5-part saxophone harmonies. When not making music (or hyphenating words) Francesca moonlights in BC Camplight and enjoys slamming into people on skates (roller derby)
“One of my new favourite bands” – Tom Robinson, Radio 6
For fans of: St Vincent, tUnE-yArDs, Dirty Projectors, Kate Bush and Fiona Apple.
Badger are a two piece alt pop force mixing melody with a narrated existential crisis. Musically they combine post-punk and IDM with a dash of experimental hip-hop (à la Death Grips and Sleaford Mods). Listeners are advised to abandon all prior convictions.
“I love the fact that my brain can’t figure out if they are techno, rock, electro, industrial, doom, post punk its f*cking ace … this stuff digs deep.” – Andrew Fearn (Sleaford Mods)
