Following five years of cyber-silence, York human, Epilogues has rebranded and recorded a new array of heart breakers for public consumption. Epilogues (now miles.) will be releasing Beauty for Ashes with their band at this gig. Expect ethereal landscapes under twiddling guitars over dulcet vocals about heart stuff. Definitely for the faint hearted.

Say Sue Me are a Surf inspired Indie-Rock/Pop act from Busan, South Korea and cited as one of 2018’s ‘break-out bands’. Childhood friends Jaeyoung Ha (Bass) and Byungkyu Kim (guitar) met drummer Semin Kang and played in bands together since winter of 2012, when they met Sumi Choi at a tea shop in Nampo-dong. They liked her speaking voice and immediately offered her a spot as the vocalist in a new band that would become Say Sue Me.
Mercury nominated, Leeds based Jazz rockers Roller Trio return to York with a new lineup and a new sound. Support comes from local avant garde talent, Stocker/Eyes.

Rough Trade Records have just released the self-titled debut album by Goat Girl. Produced by Dan Carey (The Kills, Bat For Lashes, Franz Ferdinand) in his South London studio, the record already has the press hot under the collar and has helped the four piece secure a rather sweet US tour with Parquet Courts and a bunch of fine festival slots in the summer.
Like a hazily remembered dream, U.K. duo the KVB blend reverb-soaked shoegaze with minimalist electronic production to create their delicate and ephemeral sound. Working alongside such luminaries as Geoff Barrow (Portishead) and Anton Newcome (Brian Jonestown Massacre) the pair have recorded two albums of lush, gothy krautrock.
Sex and death are common themes from Aidan Moffat; since his early days with Arab Strap, he has explored these subjects with a grace and grit that plunges deep into the human soul. But this is no re-hash of the past, rather a further leap forward for Moffat, now teaming up with fellow Scot, singer and guitarist extraordinaire, RM Hubbert.
Doncaster garage-punk trio The Blinders set out on their biggest headline tour to date in the autumn and make their debut at the Crescent on the 2nd.
Devon folk singer John Smith returned to the limelight last year with his 5th album ‘Headlong’ which he dedicated to his late mentor, John Renbourn.
