The Sunny Street
When they’re not playing together as Electrophonvintage, Delphine, Remi, Christos and Ian moonlight as The Sunny Street, sketching gorgeous love letters in the atmospheric hinterland between indiepop and dreampop. They're playing this show to celebrate the release of their forthcoming album, "Hidden For Decades", on Plastilina records.
The Heroes Of The Mexican Independence Movement
When we booked The Heroes Of The Mexican Independence Movement, we did so because we were fans of their previous incarnation, The Rocky Nest, and were impressed by the beautiful, delicate indiepop songs on their website. Two days after the booking, Simon Love joined the band. This will be the Hull via London four piece's debut London appearance.
The last time Clicky Bones' Jason Idnani-Powdrill played HDIF Presents - as the singer of The Albemarle House, who went on to become The Bridport Dagger - a certain Conor Oberst sidled up to him afterwards to tell him how much he'd enjoyed his performance. Jason's new band combines the Dagger's dramatic tension with Lauren Idnani-Powdrill's stylish vocal. This will be Clicky Bones' second gig.
A three piece from London, Frozy play adorable lo-fi pop. Or as they say: “we’re a DIY type pop band with occasional noise. Favourite bands are Jonathan Richman, Velvet Underground, Wave Pictures, Herman Dune, Jens Lekman and all that flim flam. We’ve supported the Bundles, Jeffrey Lewis, and played with Kimya Dawson a number of times, as well as organising a tour all over Europe.”
