Triptych 1: Thursday 25th January –

The Hundredth Anniversary / Penelope Isles / Prince Vaseline: https://www.facebook.com/events/2015310778713056/

The Hundredth Anniversary: Atmospheric & precisely structured songs marry bright guitar lines, rigorous percussion & clear, honest vocals. The band have played shows across the UK sharing bills with Lower Dens, Waxahatchee, Wolf Alice, Fear of Men & more. They have been twice named in NME’s ‘Ones to Watch’ and their album Sea State Pictures was named as one of the albums of 2017 by Drowned in Sound. http://thehundredthanniversary.bandcamp.com/

Penelope Isles: Hailing from the Isle of Man, Penelope Isles is the sound of siblings Jack and Lily Wolter. The band’s home recordings portray a lo-fi melodic approach in capturing their music. Their live sound is hypnotic and captivating, smeared with fuzz, dreamlike pop and dynamics that will transfix and satisfy. https://penelopeisles.bandcamp.com/

Prince Vaseline: Prince Vaseline write hypnotic and ethereal songs with a Moog Rogue, guitar and a drum machine. The duo has only recently released their new EP ‘The World of Leaf Moon’. Conjuring images from a semi-conscious sleep, Snowy and Max’s synth/baritone vocal partnership gels like one of Pulp’s ‘His ‘n’ Hers’ classics, with occasional gestures made towards the pastoral diaphanous and carefully plucked tones of the Incredible String Band and Fairport Convention. https://princevaseline.bandcamp.com/

Triptych 2: Friday 26th January –

Dark Horses / Projector / Circe:


Dark Horses: Dark Horses blend psychedelia, rock and electronica with moving image, monochrome lighting and photography. Their critically acclaimed debut album, Black Music, was released in October 2012 and featured Radio, later crowned Artrocker’s single of the year. They followed this up with the gritty electro-psych of Hail Lucid State in 2014, which garnered further repeated radio play on the likes of BBC 6 Music. Both records were produced by Death In Vegas’ Richard Fearless. http://darkhorsesmusic.com/

Projector: Projector occupy the heavy space between brooding 80s darkwave and My Bloody Valentine’s wall-of-sound pop; a combination tone of Goo era Sonic Youth and Pixies pulled together with an industrial Joy Division pulse. https://projectormusic.bandcamp.com/

Circe: Circe is an alt-pop artist who began life only a few short months ago in Brighton. Led by her icy, ethereal voice and a penchant for the mystical, Under My Skin combines dark dramatic lyrics, brooding soundscapes and visceral synth bass to create an otherworldly dimension, as if Kate Bush was exploring the depths of the upside down. http://hyperurl.co/circe

Triptych 3: Saturday 27th January –

Jungfrau / Speak Galactic / T. House:


Jungfrau: Jungfrau are an art rock band from Brighton, with two releases, one on Head of Crom records, and the other a self-release. Their songs are based around solid staccato bass-lines, atmospheric drumming, dark moody playing from the keys and guitar with a very distinctive powerful female vocal. They have played with the likes of Sleepy Sun, Acid Mothers Temple, Carlton Melton, Mugstar, Enos, Teeth of the Sea. For fans of Savages, Chelsea Wolfe, Blonde Redhead. https://jungfrau.bandcamp.com/

Speak Galactic: Speak Galactic are a psychedelic ambient pop trio, based in Brighton and are regarded as one of the city’s finest live bands. Featuring members of Merlin Tonto and Great Pagans, they rarely perform live but are coming together for Triptych and release their first music since 2013’s split with P for Persia. https://cupboardmusic.bandcamp.com/

T House: T House is the founding member of highly regarded noise-rock band Sweet Williams and prior to that the much-celebrated underground post hardcore/rock act Charlottefield. He brings his dark and claustrophobic sound to the last night of Triptych on 27th January with Speak Galactic and Jungfrau. https://endless-records.bandcamp.com/album/a-horse-and-i-must-kill
