Showcase of hotly tipped bands. Affairs are a flamboyant electro indie band from Hull, Vinyl Staircase blend indie & psychedelic music with a touch of rhythm & blues and Malory Torr´╗┐ uses a combination of ukulele, guitar and banjo to create her indie/pop originals plus resident dj Delphi

'Flamboyant angular electro indie from Hull'

'Boasting some of the tightest jeans, slickest hair and loosest hips in the East Riding of Yorkshire, AFFAIRS are a well-dressed quintet who have garnered a reputation for their ethereal and theatrical live performances. The band first met on a coach outing to Whipsnade Zoo where a bond was quickly formed through a shared love of exotic animals, denim and The Pointer Sisters. Their music contains elements that are both uniquely modern and nostalgic as laptop-made samples and loops combine with vintage Rickenbackers and dramatic vocal stylings to create a sound that some would describe as 'audible chocolate'. Comparisons have been drawn to artists as diverse as Foals, David Bowie, The Smiths and Frank Sinatra. During there time they have supported acts such as Alt-J,Circa Waves, JAWS,Dog is Dead and Coasts, as well as playing along side The 1975 and The Family Rain.'


'Vinyl Staircase are a young band from Surrey whose originals are written using many influences including Indie music, Psychedelic music, Rhythm and Blues and Shoegaze. They played a selection of summer festival dates last year, have had several plays on BBC introducing and performed on a live session for Kane.fm. They have just released their debut single 'Solitude' from their new 4 Track Self Titled EP, due to be released in April.'

'Tasty lo-fi dirtiness' - Melita Dennet, BBC Introducing DJ

'I loved it when I stumbled unexpectedly across Vinyl Staircase' - Popped Music
