The ultimate family festival, Deer Shed, returns this July for its 8th edition and its theme this year is “The Wilderwild”. With an always diverse, yet interesting lineup, here are 6 bands that you definitely not be missing if you’re off to Deer Shed Festival.
‘Brilliant Sanity’ was definitely one of our top albums of the year last year. Having been a fan of Teleman for a good while now, the bands minimal sound has grown into something solid and substantial over the past few years. Teleman are currently working on their third album and therefore just playing just a few select shows this summer.
Best known for being Howling Bells front-woman, Juanita Stein is set to release her debut solo album ‘America’ late July. Juanita’s sound as a solo-artist is still familiar, yet definitely sounds unique in comparison. ‘America’ is said to be ‘”an ode to the dark heart of America. Of times gone and times to come.”
Set to release his debut album ‘Frames Per Second’ next month, Lewes raised folk musician, Laucan is set for big things. Latest single ‘Wait For The Impact’ showed an enchanting, yet versatile sound, one in which translates live into something rather special.
Hooton Tennis Club
Dry, lively indie-rock with honest lyrics and a story to tell. Hooton Tennis Club are an indie quartet from the north west who’ve made a name for themselves in just a short time. Now onto their second album, ‘Big Box Of Chocolates’ which was released just last year, the band aren’t showing any signs of slowing down yet.
Splashh are a London based, Australian indie-rock band whose music could be described as grungy and fuzzy but with bite. The band are compelling with charming stand-out tracks such as ‘Closer’ and ‘All I Wanna Do’. Splashh released their second album ‘Waiting A Lifetime’ earlier this year.
I’d forgotten how good this band were since we featured their lively, jangly single ‘H.W. Running’ last year. Palace Winter are a duo consisting of Australian singer-songwriter Carl Coleman and Danish producer and pianist Caspar Hesselager who are currently working on their second album. Palace Winter were also named as “One of the most exciting bands of 2016” by Lauren Laverne.
