Broken Melody Records is a new record label based in Belfast city centre, the 14+ launch of their debut release – a compilation featuring 7 of the best unsigned bands in N.Ireland – takes place in the Oh Yeah Centre, Belfast on Friday 16th August.
Having established a strong, ever growing fan base since their formation in November 2012,
Belfast based indie pop quartet Hurdles are on the verge of something truly brilliant. Off the
back of two impossibly infectious singles totally brimming with propulsive rhythms and
boundless anthemic choruses – ‘Pictures’ and ‘Paper Soldiers’ – their new single ‘Kaleidoscope’
distils their subtly euphoric shtick into 227 seconds of guitar pop brilliance.
The Couth take influences from the surf rock sound of 60’s Beach Boys mixed with the punk roots of the Ramones and the Clash polished off with the catchy modern indie rock of the Strokes. Their live shows are renowned for being a wholly sweaty gripping affair!
Pretty Child Backfire
Hailing from Mid-Ulster, young upstarts Pretty Child Backfire demonstrate with ease how a great pop song should sound. Following championing from Snow Patrol helmsman Gary Lightbody, the band have been arming themselves with a raft of new songs for their debut record due for release in 2014.
Clown Parlour is the side project of Mojo Fury main man Michael Mormecha. If you imagine Trent Reznor inviting the Beatles round for afternoon tea you will get somewhere close to the sonics of Mix Tapes.
Seven Summits are Rory Nellis, Dominic Coyle, Ciaran McKenna, Francis McCrory and Joe Laverty. They use a range of guitar & synth sounds to create melody-driven alternative music. Feel good music at its best!
An electronic rock act from Derry/Londonderry, NI fronted by live wire Jilly St John. Energetic and enigmatic performances this act promise & deliver BAGS of attitude, HUGE riffs, DIRTY beats, & more hooks than you can shake a stick at!
Future Chaser began 10 years ago when the members were just 13 years old. In their time together they have won the RTE2 FM’s School of Rock, played at Oxegen, had a song featured on the Northern Irish Tourist Board campaign and have recently released their first E.P.
