Filkin’s Drift www.filkinsdrift.com
Meeting in the Black Country, Filkin’s Drift weave together intricate melodies from the folklore of their homes. Their music combines the traditional and the contemporary, blending fiddle, guitar, harmonium and mandolin with their close vocal harmonies.
“Have seen this band a few times and they’ve always been so amazing and I recently received their EP which I would 100% recommend getting as it’s just superb!” – Rob Roberts
Grande Valise grandevalise.bandcamp.com
Black Country Synthpop at its best. Love letters to trains a speciality. Grande Valise perform an exciting mix of 80s Synthpop combined with intelligent recognition of the latest sounds and the environment they are created in. Very local and Black Country sound with some real fun and insightful tunes that celebrate the things we all love about living here in the West Midlands.
“What ever you do, go and see Grande Valise perform. They are fun and futuristic with a real sense of their locality and an ability to get the crowd going every time.” Justine Page
