4 bands you cannot miss at Isle Of Wight Festival 2017.
A self-proclaimed “council pop/rock band”, Walsall based The Assist had a huge year in 2016 having supported Rat Boy and Blossoms as well as playing stages at various major festivals. More recently and launching themselves straight into 2017, the band released their latest single ‘Wonderful’, a single which proved that they can indeed write sparkling, indie-pop tracks time and time again.
Himalayas are a Cardiff based indie-rock band who have been gaining momentum rather quickly over the past year, especially with their latest single ‘Thank God I’m Not You’. With boundless energy, charming, yet witty lyrics and insanely catchy riffs throughout, the band are definitely onto something.
London based, rock n roll quartet Paves have recently completed a large UK tour including sold out dates in Edinburgh, London and Manchester. The band’s latest single ‘Baby’ was also named a “summer anthem” by Radio X, which is pretty much true with its carefree feel and warm, catchy riffs.
The Shimmer Band
The Shimmer Band are a Bristol based, psychedelic rock band who have recently been making waves for themselves. The band have released their latest single ‘What Is Mine?’ recently and it’s a powerful, compelling track with potent synth melodies creating a complete, sure of themselves sound.
