MAN WITHOUT COUNTRY
Plus DJ sets by
With world beats, driving basslines, atmospheric synthesizers, shoegaze guitars and vocals drenched in 60’s L.A golden coast surf pop, Corelli put together something quite unique and direct. Their influences include the likes of The Jesus And Mary Chain, The Smiths, Orange Juice, The Stone Roses and The Cure, and they hold an ability to pen powerful anthemic choruses that bite you on the backside and kiss it better at the same time. Their songs evoke images of fantasy, hope and escapism, something of short stock in music today.
Man Without Country
Man Without Country have been on the radar of Radio One since last summer, playing the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury 2010 and scoring an early play list for their song “Closet Addicts Anonymous”. More recently, BBC Introducing asked them to represent emerging UK talent on the BBC / PRS showcase at Musexpo – one of only four UK bands asked to represent the UK.
Debut single “King Complex” is the first taster from forthcoming album “Foe” and indicative of MWC’s ability to morph their source material into anthems when you least expect it, the track’s tinkling keyboard led intro exploding into a euphoric dancefloor chorus.
Fresh from appearances at Shambala and Croatia’s Garden Festival, and with recent support for his edits from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Craig Charles and Quantic behind him, Leftfoot resident Sam Redmore concocts a soulful brew of funk, hip hop, disco, reggae, house, latin, afrobeat and more. Expect plenty of crafty edits, mashups and remixes thrown in for good measure.
Hot Wax keep the downstairs bar entertained with a heavy hitting dose of funk, soul, breaks and hip hop.
