Day 2 of 3 in our round up of “Must See Acts” at Dot 2 Dot Festival. Once again, we’ve joyfully listened through tracks by every act to bring you our pick of the bunch. Today it’s 4 crackers that will be gracing the stages of the Bristol leg on Saturday 27 May.
Stone Cold Fiction (@stonecoldtweets)
They describe their sound as “swampy-blues-rock”. That works for us! There are moments of intimacy and flourishes of intricacy peppered in between the high tempo riffage and smash-the-shit-out-of-the-kit drumming. This will be a fun gig.
Where: The Lanes, 22 Nelson Street, Bristol, BS1 2LE
Showtime: Saturday 27 May @ 13:30
Harvey Causon (@HCauson)
We’ve had an eye on young Harvey for a while after listening to some of his work through link ups with Maya Law and Cabrakid. Indie-pop over an ethereal bed of sounds and a voice that feels as if its pleading and pained, but that you cannot tear yourself away from.
Where: Fopp, 29-29 College Green, Bristol, BS1 5TD
Showtime: Saturday 27 May @ 17:30
4th Project (@4th_Project)
Quite literally the first band we reviewed and we were sold from the start. Otherworldly ambience, shimmering guitar lines and a vocal that holds you in right until the last breath.
Where: BrewDog, 58 Baldwin Street, Bristol, BS1 1QW
Showtime: Saturday 27 May @ 18:30
Milo’s Planes (@MilosPlanes)
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! How a band is able to pack so much power, energy and grunt into a 1:21 song is beyond us. Milo’s Planes however have that locked down. It’s noisy parcels of guitar, bass and drum based havoc that has to seen live.
Where: The Gryphon, 41 Colston Street, Bristol, BS1 5AP
Showtime: Saturday 27 May @ 20:30
Different ends of the musical spectrum this bunch, but all mega in their own right. Don’t miss them if you’re there.
