The Shantlys were formed in a time when real rock stars existed and last orders meant, guitars were passed to the gifted.
The band were very much inspired by Oasis, and as a result were obsessed with other influences such as The Beatles, Stones, The Who and The Sex Pistols. This however didn’t really form the sound that people associate with the band. Johnny Cash, his lyrics and rhythm has evidently been a very big influence, but what’s more prominent is the musicianship that lies in Motown music. The beats, the melodies, harmonies and lyrics is what inspires the bands writers. Rock n roll is king, until the Motown begins.

With comparisons drawn to Neil Young, The Beta Band, Radiohead and Sea Change-era Beck, Ali MacQueen has been described as “Widescreen Alt-Rock” by Adam Gardner at I Said Yeah, who added, “Loretto serves as something of a mission statement that promises more riches in the future”.

Missing The Ferry are three brothers and their best friend who perform a variety of Irish and Irish-influenced music as well as writing songs about identity and belonging.
With inspiration as diverse as Brendan Shine, The Pogues and The Stone Roses their mission is to get people dancing and thinking.


Morning Tourist is London based indie folk rock artist, Sean McKinney, who’s debut EP ‘Quiet Lives’ fuses country-tinged acoustics with fuzzy distortion, exploring political themes with lyrical introspection.
