5 Bands you cannot miss at Dot To Dot Festival 2017!
The Slow Readers Club
Brooding, indie-electro, doom-pop band The Slow Readers Club are one of the most exciting, DIY bands in the country at the moment. The band have also been named as “One of the most exciting sounds coming out of our fair city” by Manchester Evening News. Last year, The Slow Readers Club supported James for 11 dates on their tour, but have also been selling out headline dates around the country themselves.
From the ashes of Night Engine rose Artificial Please just last year. The band released their debut EP ‘Like Never Before’ just last month. Artificial Pleasure have also appeared at various festivals over the last few weeks including packing out The Hope & Ruin at The Great Escape last weekend.
The Night Café
It’s been a busy year already for The Night Café having released their debut EP ‘Strange Clothes’, toured alongside both Sundara Karma and Blaenavon, as well as playing various headline dates this month. The band’s sound could be described as jangle indie-pop earworms, so don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Neon Waltz are a six-piece indie band from John O’Groats. The band have been named as one of the finest new British bands by Q, NME and Shortlist and they definitely live up to that. Neon Waltz are currently in the middle of an 11 date UK tour which finishes up in Glasgow on the 18th June.
Stereo Honey are a four-piece indie-rock band based in London, whose dreamy sound is nothing short of sublime. Their debut single is one to be reckoned with though. ‘Where No One Knows Your Name’ is a captivating, with drifting vocals and an all round explosive chorus. Stereo Honey have got various festival appearances coming up this summer as well as supporting The Naked and Famous at the Electric Brixton in October.
