Glastonbury Blues

 This past weekend is quite possibly the only time we don’t mind having a rain soaked summer weekend. Why? To make ourselves feel mildly better about not getting a Glasto ticket obviously! However, our dance to the rain gods were seemingly in vain, as the weekend seemed to be one of the only truly glorious weather weekends of the year!

   For those not watching the highlights on TV and enjoying the weather, we’ve hand-picked three of our must-listen-to-NOW artists who will be sure to climb up the billing over the next few years...

South London quartet Palma Violets, who incidentally formed at another festival (Reading) a few years back, took to the Park stage on Friday evening, and where defiantly there to play a show. Their debut album 180 came out in Feburary, and award winning track ‘best of friends’ is worth a listen alone.

Lewis Watson is a 20 year old singer songwriter, who started off by uploading videos of him playing covers onto youtube just a few years ago.  Now after touring with Birdy, and releasing several EP’s he looks set for much bigger things. The song ‘Calling’ is pure heaven.

Californian rock duo Deap Vally, Lindsey and Julie are riding high with their melodic riffs and bad-ass attitudes. They released their debut album ‘Sistrionix’ just last Monday, watch their performance of ‘Baby I can hell’ if you need further proof!
