“Formed on a love of iconic British bands like the The Clash, The Undertones and The Jam (to name a few), a working class work ethic and no-nonsense approach; South Wales quartet TOWN’s debut offering, the ‘Original Design’ EP, documents the knocks and scrapes of being a youth in modern day Britain.

It’s certainly not all doom and gloom though, lead single ‘Eighteen’, as frontman, Alex Nash explains, “focuses on a prime time in our teenage years, where you’re expected to follow the system and fall into the generic nine-to-five lifestyle, having only 48 hours on the weekend to let off steam. You don’t have to take a journey on that conveyor belt, and can do whatever you want to do, be whoever you want to be.”

It’s attitude like that, that has seen the band begin to make waves up and down the UK with their relatable subject matter, no matter what bill they’re playing on, following shows alongside the likes of The Buzzcocks, The Bluetones, Kids In Glass Houses and One Night Only.

Produced by Romesh Dodangoda (Motorhead, Manic Street Preachers, Lostprophets) at Long Wave Studios and the legendary Rockfield Studios, ‘Original Design’ is both anthemic and ambitious, serving as a perfect introduction to TOWN and should whet the appetite for what will surely be an exciting future for the Newport outfit.”

16 – ‘The Dallas Guild’, ‘The Jons’, ‘Lennox’ and ‘Raven Beats Crow’

The Dallas Guild:

“The Dallas Guild was one of the few unsigned bands to soundtrack a major TV ad campaign with their self-released single Men in White Coats…

Bridging an unlikely prog/pop highway of Pink Floyd’s 70s soundscape psychedelia and ELO’s punchy synth drenched pop songs, The Dallas Guild have just put the finishing
touches to their debut album ”Hello Darkness” and recently returned from supporting MGMT and LCD Soundsystem in Israel.”

“The Jons exploded onto the scene in 2009 and have steadily been gaining fans and throwing parties ever since.

Their first single ‘Walk Towards The People’ was released by Pirates Press Records in time for their storming performance at the final of the 2010 Live and Unsigned Competition, where they were crowned the runners up, beating over 10,000 other musicians to the honour. Competition judge Noddy Holder described the boys as ‘a band you’d want at your party’.”

Lennox:

“Female fronted rock with balls of steel and hearts of gold, Lennox formed only in June 2010 from the remains of 2 local bands – but quickly turned the new line-up into something very special…

Lennox went to Surrey in October to record their 4 track EP with Matt O’Grady, producer for You Me At Six, The Blackout and Deaf Havana to name a few and have come back to their hometown fighting to get noticed and spread the word that Lennox have arrived, and they won’t be going anywhere!”
