The Pottos
Your Room 
16 September 2016



EP: White Label Kafka
Lead Track (Single): Your Room


The Pottos are Colin Clegg and Misto Viscuso, a duo that work with a range of other musicians. School friends since the age of fifteen, Colin and Misto have played together under a number of guises, settling on The Pottos in 2012 when they released their first album 'Imaginary Monologues'. This was followed by an EP 'Borrowed Flag' last year, and 'White Label Kafka' EP released earlier this year. A record that is presented in full here and demonstrates the band's versatile approach to their songwriting and their keen ear for melody.

'White Label Kafka', produced by Creation Records co-founder Joe Foster, provides the band's new single 'Your Room', an energetic and melodic Indie-Pop track that carries all the hallmarks of Joe Foster's signature production style.

The band toured extensively throughout 2014 and 2015 sharing stages in Italy with the likes of Frontier Ruckus (USA), Ulan Bator (France), The Blue Lenas (UK). One of these Italian tours saw them accompanied by Foster who made an appearance at a Creation Nights Session, where he was interviewed about his stellar career in music against the backdrop of The Pottos live performance and the crowd's raucous reception.


The Band:

Colin Clegg - Lead vocals, rhythm guitar

Misto Viscuso - Lead guitar

The Barmines
Reliance 
9 September 2016


The Barmines strive to create innovative and explosive Indie Rock, both in the the studio and through their storming live performances. Their last single 'These Days & Nights' was released in March 2015 and garnered a great response through widespread radio airplay and critical acclaim. The single launch, held in the band's home city of Leeds, was the first of a string of sold out shows for The Barmines, demonstrating just how quickly word spread about this band across the north of England.
The Barmines are set to launch new single 'Reliance' alongside their upcoming festival dates with a full tour to follow in Autumn.


"Their track sounds like the live show is an absolute riot!"
Radio X

“Causing a bit of a buzz..."
BBC Introducing

"A chaotic finale brings an end to an incredibly strong and impressive set, with everybody in the room in applause. Tonight has been a very prosperous and promising show for The Barmines, there’s no evidence that suggests any reasoning as to why these boys can’t be the next big thing."
GigSlutz?
