Alex is also confirmed to perform at Ticketmaster’s acoustic event at the Natural History Museum on Thursday 7 December. Give I Won’t Break a listen here and keep your ears open for her in 2018.
East London likely lads, Brit-wavers and TicketWeb favourites SHINERS finally release their debut EP Now which includes latest singles Generation Y and pay day anthem Just Got Paid. Give the EP a listen here. You can catch them live in London on the following dates: Natural History Museum (Acoustic Lates) on Thursday 30 November; Hot Vox presents @ Roadtrip & The Workshop, Old Street (Hot Vox Presents) on Friday 14 December; and Spotlight X Disaster presents @ Camden Assembly, Camden High St on Wednesday 10 January.
Dama Scout are a fantastic art-pop trio who’ve just finished a UK tour supporting Canada’s just marvellous WEAVES. Artist Services caught the London show at Hackney’s Oslo last week and were suitably impressed. New single Sugar is out now on Hand in Hive, but beware the video is not for the squeamish. Stick Wednesday 31 January 2018 in your diary, as that’s when you can catch them at Stoke Newington’s Waiting Room – not to be missed.
In London, we joined the fight on 4 February to raise money and awareness on World Cancer Day.
