Heartworms

We’ve not heard much yet from Heartworms, AKA caustic South London post punk songwriter Jojo Orme, but we already love her abrasive intensity. Go right now and check out killer single “Consistent Dedication” and soak in the chilling gothic vibes, atmospheric feel and enjoy the razor-sharp edge. Newly signed to Speedy Wonderland, you will soon be naming Heartworms as your new favourite artist.

Priestgate

Priestgate have rapidly grown from snotty Driffield post punks to a genuinely remarkable band, showing huge potential combing a knack for penning colossal anthems with tremendous stage presence.

Huge tracks like “Some Things Never Change”, “Bedtime Story” and “Eyes Closed For Winter” are packed full of passion and emotion, and we cannot wait to hear them drop a debut album – hopefully over the next twelve months!

Panic Shack

Sassy, bratty and hilariously funny; ; Panic Shack re-capture the rebellious spirit of riot grrl and prove the power held in just three chords once again. These Welsh punks have already impressed at Green Man and 2000Trees, and will also appear at Are You Listening?, Bearded Theory and Live At Leeds after completing their own headline tour.

Opus Kink

Opus Kink deftly blend the lines between jazz and punk, creating a beautiful sound framed with a gritty edge, pleasing raging mosh pit goers and placid chin strokers alike. The sextet has been building a solid fanbase over recent years, and look set to be a massive breakthrough band in ’23!

See Opus Kink when they play new festival Beam Me Up when it hits Lincoln in February, plus they also appear at Dot To Dot in Bristol and Nottingham.

Divorce

Nottingham is a hot bed for producing great bands, and the latest to begin to rise to prominence is elegantly odd indie quartet Divorce. Signed to Hand In Hive, their debut EP Get Mean has impressed the likes of Steve Lamacq who keeps giving them a spin on his BBC 6music show.

Plus, we were lucky enough to chat to Divorce for our Gigantic Backstage blog which you can check out HERE.
