----- STRANGE CAGES -----

“(Strange Cages) deliciously evil sounds are reminiscent of the dark side of the '67 dream, haunted by the spectre of the flower children finally fading from bloom. An epic live act” (Clash)

"Brighton is known as a destination for the odd the dirty weekends, and sleazy psych rockers Strange Cages channel their hometown’s saucy resources on Desert, a Theo Verney-produced wad of wonky-legged riffs and thirsty vocals." - Q Magazine

"STRANGE CAGES possess a primality which suggests a pungent diet of psych garage fuzz: from The Stooges to The Seeds, these guys metabolise their influences with bold panache, creating a fevered serge of sweaty hedonist rock" - Hero Magazine

"STRANGE CAGES sound like they’ve been plucked from a scuzzy dive bar in California circa 1967" - Gigslutz

"Strange Cages’ dark, primal sounds suggest a strict and pungent diet of psychedelic garage rock. Strange Cages could easily be filed between The Cramps and The Black Angels, with their sleazy, gritty vocals and snaking guitar lines" - Fred Perry Subculture

----- DOLLS -----

DOLLS' latest explosion of grunge-punk noise comes in the form of 'Audrey', a song about an unusual girl from two unusually usual girls. Audrey is a belting anthem with psychedelic twists, bags of sass and pure garage rock grit.

Jade and Belinda's infectious stage presence and unique chemistry results in big ballsy riffs and knee-shaking drumbeats that, combined with raw, unrestrained vocals create dramatic effects on the body and brain.

Already being championed by John Kennedy at Radio X and by BBC Introducing the track was recorded by up-and-coming producer Rohan Budd and mastered by award-winning engineer John Davis (Led Zeppelin, Royal Blood, FKA Twigs).

'Deep pools of brilliant noise' Stereogum
