Her's - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Her’s are Stephen Fitzpatrick and Audun Laading. Liverpool’s premier crank-pop duo have birthed a catalogue of tunes causing an epidemic case of the jives.Echoing the gauzy slacker sound of Mac DeMarco with guitars that chime like The Smiths, they channel the surreal and the sublime through a twist of technicolour tropicalia. A wistful tenderness inhabits the architecture of their perfect oddball pop, winning them fans at Radio 1, 6 Music, DIY, The Guardian, Stereogum and Hype Machine. In 12 months, the band have been making audiences hips shake, from Green Man toThe Great Escape, Benicassimto SXSW, via Thailand with Beach Fossils.
Spencer. - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Using his birth name, Spencer. is the solo-project of Rochester-born teenager Spencer
Allen. The self-taught singer, songwriter, and classically trained multi-instrumentalist first
shared an instrumental STARCASTER EP on Soundcloud in 2016. His vocal debut VISCERAL
LOVE followed in August 2017 with the breakout single ”Open Wide .” Curators such as
Pigeons & Planes, Evergreen, and Lyrical Lemonade caught onto his follow up single “To Be
You” and Spencer’s rise began.
He was picked out by Smokin Grooves Festival and played alongside Thundercat, The Roots,
Erykah Badu, and many of his idols on his first trip to California. By July he connected with
Omar Apollo and supported the north east leg of his “W.A.N.T.E.D.” tour, notably playing to an
oversold Baby's All Right crowd in Brooklyn, NY.
Released on September 28th, Spencer’s Want U Back EP earned 1,000,000 streams in just 3
weeks. It was picked up by FADER, PAPER Mag, Beats 1 (Matt Wilkinson), BBC Radio 1Xtra
(Jamz Supernova), and playlisted across Spotify and Apple Music’s largest playlists such as
POLLEN, Ultimate Indie, Alt R&B, and The Plug.
Now living in Brooklyn at 20 years old, his sound fuses jazz freedom and R&B rhythm while
pulling between indie, hip-hop, and lo-fi music, creating something all his own.
