We run the rule over the artists playing Neon Lights Festival on 26th and 27th November and find out who gets the PoP Recommendation! Enjoy!!
Hot up and coming UK band, Pumarosa, has been described as “goth with a groove” and it’s not difficult to see why. Fronted by the Siouxsie Sioux channeling Isabel Muñoz-Newsome, an infectious and pleasing post-punk/dance rock vibe permeates Pumarosa’s music. New self-titled EP is essential listening.
Together with Cheating Sons, our very own Cashew Chemists is flying the flag high for #THENEWROCKNROLL. As showcased in this year’s Baybeats Festival, the band’s new material is veering strongly towards the psych-rock revival that is gaining ground in the UK and Europe. Add this to impeccable melodies and you just know these local heroes are ready for rock greatness.
Since launching her career in 2011 with three self-released singles, English singer-songwriter Lucy Rose has been on a meteoric rise with her edgy acoustic pop-rock agenda that has earned her plaudits and commercial success. A fine balance of art and craft, Rose’s debut in Singapore must not be missed.
Manchester singer-songwriter Shura derives her song-centric approach from a wide range of influences – Massive Attack, Pink Floyd, Prince & J Dilla – and parlays the same into catchy, soulful albeit artful electro-dance rock. Debut album Nothing is Real is one to absorb and savour.
No stranger to our shores, these post-punk revivalists are practically rock veterans now with debut release Hummer almost a decade old. Carrying on the traditions of inspired 80s art-rockers, Foals have broadened their sound somewhat in the years since but still relevant for our rock ’n’ roll ignorant times.
