New music champion Chris Hawkins of BBC Radio 6Music & BBC Radio 2 takes over the live rooms on Friday night with a series of breakthrough talent at 93 Feet East.
LITTLE CUB Little Cub are an alternative/indie pop trio based in SE London. Drawing across a range of influences, the trio’s sound encapsulated sleek noir-pop with ethereal atmospherics inspired by a multitude of electronic genres, alongside lyrics that traverse love, loss and introspection.
After amassing a number of strong compositions, the ensemble got to work performing in and around London; they released their first single, “Breathing Space,” and debut release for the label, Loveless, in 2016. The song received further praise for its woozy, sparse, and lush electronics and soaring yet soft chorus melody.
THE PENELOPES The Penelopes are an indie pop/electronic band from Paris, consisting of Axel Basquiat and Vincent T. Recording, producing and remixing from their HQ in Bethnal Green, the band have been focussing on writing for exhibitions and fashion shows and scoring for film and TV.
The Penelopes today, in tailor-made roles are humble but assertive. Axel Basquiat composes and delivers a vocal that is both weighted and grave, while Vincent T. takes care of the production and ties their works together. Expect a mix of indie and dream pop, combined with disco and electro tight groove, layered with lush and melodies.
MALKA MALKA first made waves on the music scene as Tamara Schlesinger, the front woman of acclaimed alt-folk collective 6 Day Riot and also as a prolific songwriter. Now as MALKA, she weaves mesmeric percussive rhythms among a charge of irresistible call and response chants and instantaneous melodies. She explores a carnival of global sounds intertwined with an explorative affirming message.
