Splashh
Splashh
Splashh was formed in 2012 by friends Sasha Carlson and Toto Vivian. The pair have been making music together since they were teenagers in the suburbs of Australia, which to be fair, was only a few years ago.

Their debut album, Comfort, recorded entirely on their own with a home studio in their London flat, was released in 2013 to critical acclaim. With praise from NME, BBC, CLASH, The Guardian, Clash, Drowned in Sound, Q, and many other tastemakers, the band hit the road in support of the album touring extensively through the UK, Europe, America and Australia.

In 2015, the band divided themselves between London and New York City, for a time of "self-imposed exile to write.” The idea being that the time apart, and the different influences of the two cities, would bring a new dimension to the music. With the addition of new members, and the production skills of Nicolas Vernhes, (War on Drugs, Deerhunter, Dirty Projectors) the sound that this creative time had cultivated has been beautifully captured on Waiting A Lifetime, their sophomore effort, to be released on by Cinematic Music Group in early 2017.

"When we first went in the studio, we had a different idea of how we wanted the record to sound,” says Vivian. "We had been sitting with the demos for 3 years, so we had an idea of what we thought the album should sound like. When we went into the studio with Nicolas, we started fresh and tore the songs apart. It was a lot of fun to experiment and take it as far as we could. It was liberating.”

Adding another layer to the album is the band’s aesthetic. The album artwork is by artist Lucien Smith, who created original works of sculpture he then photographed for the band to use. The first round of press photos is by rising photographer Zachary Chick (who also happens to be the Splashh’s new drummer).

"Its fast and in your face. Loud, but also pretty,” says Toto. "The whole record has a lot to offer. If people like ‘Rings’ then I think they will love the record…or not :)”

Signed to the label Cinematic Music Group, the band now has the resources to preach their gospel worldwide.
The Britanys
The Britanys
Since releasing their first single 'Want To Be' with Converse Rubber Tracks, The Britanys have been lighting up the internet, getting praise from publications such as NME, DIY Magazine and Popular TV. Named one of the top 10 bands from New York to look out for in 2015 by the New York Observer, The Britanys have quickly been getting comparisons to The Strokes, Iggy Pop, and CBGB's era.

Now, after building a studio in their basement in Brooklyn, The Britanys have just finished recording their second single 'It's What It Is' and are planning on self releasing it in June to accompany their summer show schedule.

"'Want To Be' by the fuzzy New York upstarts The Britanys...sounding like something The Strokes might have wandered into in the early noughties"- NME Magazine

The Britanys sound like they’ve absorbed the work of their yesteryear heroes and flipped all inspiration upside down. Every aspect of ‘Want To Be’’s delivery sits outside the norm, even though the thrashing chords and New York vibe recall early The Strokes. - DIY Magazine

The Britanys deserve a spot on your springtime playlist, mostly because their breezy tunes are just so damn good.- Popular TV

"Brooklyn's The britanys are an early hint at potential heirs apparent to a line of succession running through from CBGB to The Strokes at the head of East Coast guitar chic" - GIT Awards

Dare I say, their concept bleeds into the influences of Velvet Underground and even Iggy Pop circa 1977- Alt Citizen
