We’re extremely proud of our roster of UK artists and the scene here in general, so we wanted to put something together to celebrate that.
BSM’s Big Day Out pulls together 20 of our favourite artists across three unique East London venues - Moth Club, Paper Dress Vintage and Hackney Empire Bar - each within a couple of minutes stroll, for what we hope will be everything the name suggests.
We believe the lineup speaks for itself and offers something for everyone. Today we’ve announced our very own Tangled Hair, Kamikaze Girls and Orchards alongside our wonderful friends Doe, Kagoule, Bellevue Days, Stephen Tellison, El Morgan and Natalie Evans. And that’s just the beginning! We’ll...
Your favourite brotherly duo Cassels are back with a brand-new single and accompanying video - When Completing Handshakes!

I’ve been told I look like an axe murderer at the beginning, which wasn’t intentional"

feels like an understatement to say we're excited about this news. One
of the most important bands we've ever known, TGUK have played a huge
part in shaping not just our personal tastes but the direction this
