January 25 @ 7:00 pm - January 26 @ 2:30 am
Nambucca Live presents another night of brilliant new artists at the legendary Holloway Road venue.
MONKEYFIST: 10.15 – 11.00
MonkeyFist are an eight piece Punk/Funk Dance Reggae band from South East London who bring the festival energy to any gig with their vibrant horn section and thundering breaks.
Some of the founding members have been a mainstay on the UK festival circuit for many years in dance bands such as Orangafruup and Scotch Lobster. MonkeyFist’s rip-snorting horn section, featuring in projects as diverse as the West African band Zantogola, combines with rhythm section seasoned in the UK folk scene and the upfront energy of our percussion duo makes for one hell of a dance floor.
Expect bass, breaks, horns, swing and dancing.
Keep on Fisting
HATTIE ERAWAN: 9.15 – 10.00
Half East and Half West, ‘Hattie’ spent the majority of her childhood in Norwich. At the age of 11 she stumbled across her father’s old guitar which was stored in the attic and immediately began to play and write her own music.
Hattie is a haunting alternative/folk artist, who writes and performs truly original material. Her music is a mix of powerful, radiant vocals with dark beautiful lyrics giving a real sense of authenticity. Her key influences are Joni Mitchell, Nirvana and Sheila Chandra.
She’s already an experienced performer having played such major London venues as The Bedford, St. Pancras Old Church, Proud Camden and The Finsbury. She has also enjoyed success with Sofar Sounds, touring around the UK and Europe as well as recent series of gigs in her native Thailand.
THE NORTHERN HEIGHTS: 8.15 – 9.00
Already making a name on the London folk scene, The Northern Heights bring to you a uniquely heartwarming live experience.
Drawing inspiration from the likes of Fleet Foxes, Laura Marling, Fleetwood Mac and others, their rich harmonies and touching lyrics place them firmly in the contemporary folk scene, while incorporating more traditional folk sounds.
The group are now actively performing their exciting and organic live talents, and releasing their debut single this year.
GEMINI EYE: 7.30 – 8.00
Gemini Eye are a psych-pop band from London. In 2019, they will release their second album, Downhill Struggle, which will receive a Pitchfork 6.3 or a Pitchfork 8.1, dependent on the actions they take on November 14th, 2019. They will disband in 2024, after Gem, the lead singer, tragically perishes in either a fire or a boating accident, dependent on the actions they take on November 14th, 2019.
JOSH VINE: 7.00 – 7.25
Josh Vine is a 23 year old singer/songwriter whose vocal tone sounds strikingly more mature than his years. Originally from a rural part of the west midlands, and now living in London, his songwriting reflects the hustle and anonymity of big city life. His soundscapes crackle with the atmosphere of late night dreamy skylines where the buildings take on their own life to rival its human inhabitants. Some of his early influences include the likes of Radiohead, The National, Ben Howard and Bon Iver, but Josh Vine has crafted a sound that articulates his own perspective and manages to communicate something that’s both personal and universal.
