Submerged in low-fi electro ambiance, the name may imply "NOISE NOISE NOISE" but actually Friday's headliners Decibels are a chilled-out synthed-up quintet putting the mmm into summer that you can both boogie along to and indulge in the beauty of to your hearts content. Having been supported heavily by national BBC Introducing, several online blogs and even released as part of a Warp Records compilation, they are certainly the ones to watch for all you Midlands electronica fans.
The Casual T's
Sandwiched somewhere between S Club and U2, just like Decibels the psychedelic indie band The Casual T's have the amazing ability to relax you into a state of bliss as well as get you straight up on the Friday night dancefloor. The Northampton trio's beautifully upbeat harmonies and calming folk melodies have been winning them fans all over the county since late 2010 and with a performance on R&R World forthcoming Jordan, Grant and Chris look set to gain many more to come.
Fallen to Earth from a musical German settlement on the far off dwarf planet at some point during the mid-17th century, Matt King and co. are in the process of releasing their debut album Thanks Idiots (you're very welcome!) with local label Serious Types, sounding upbeatly fantastic from what I've heard so far. Das Pluto Gang are rip-roaring guitar-squalling garage-cum-alternative country awesomeness at absolute full blast.
