The Great Escape Festival 2015 - Preview (Part 2 of 5)
Without further ado, here are the next 4 Breaking More Waves recommended acts for Great Escape 2015 in the 2nd of this 5 post series.
Read about why we love Great Escape so much in our previous post as well as checking out some further recommendations.
We've featured Miami based singer Brika a number of times on the blog last year, but to date her profile in the UK is relatively low. Great Escape will be one of the first opportunities a British audience gets to hear songs from her debut album Voice Memos. For fans of sultry electronic pop with (in places) a hint of the cocktail bar to it.
Katy Perry is already a fan having tweeted that Aurora makes her heart 'a flutter' and that she's an 'angel'. The small number of songs this Norwegian singer has put on line so far have been celebrated by the blogosphere (including Breaking More Waves). The buzz is building nicely for this electronic pop singer with a voice that sounds that it could sit just as comfortably on a folk song. Katy Perry isn't wrong.
There's been a bit of a music industry scrum down for this Welsh indie rock band with the punk rock referencing name and bags of energy in their sound. A chance to see what the fuss is all about perhaps? If you like the Arctic Monkeys you'll hear a bit of resemblance with their song Cave Song.
Last year we watched Robyn play an Alternative Escape show at the Latest Music Bar to just a small handful of people after featuring her cover of Ben Howard's The Fear on the blog. Since then things have been developing nicely for Robyn, with her Islander EP being very well received and a recent headline show at London's Lexington. This Fleetwood Mac cover has recently been doing the business on the Hype Machine charts.
