‘Curated’ By Lyle & Scott II
After the success of the first oversubscribed, sold out event featuring James Yuill, Trophy Wife and Babeshadow, Lyle & Scott is excited to announce the second in the series of ‘Curated by Lyle & Scott’
Focusing on showcasing new talent, Lyle & Scott will be presenting the very best in emerging artists and further strengthening this iconic brands association with new music. The second show will take place on 27th January. The fourth slot at each of the 2011 gigs will be decided by the public through a fan-influenced competition taking place via www.facebook.com/lyleandscott
‘We are hugely excited about ‘Curated by Lyle & Scott’ which demonstrates our desire to support emerging talent within the music industry in the UK and provide a showcase for young bands’, said Jess Pugh, Lyle & Scott’s Marketing Manager.
Now its great to be able to announce that PARADISE POINT will be opening the show and are the first unsigned act to be selected through the Curated By Lyle & Scott band competition. Paradise Point are about as new as it gets having played their first gig in November 2010 with only a handful of tunes to their name, but they instantly exude style and attitude. With an average band member age of 18, they’re full of drive and excitement, determined to return credibility to pop music. Their instruments are live and their voice are damn right loud, they offer much needed fun, glamour and mystery to a resurgent UK pop scene that is providing an antidote to the X Factor-culture inflicted on the singles chart by Simon Cowell!
The most memorable pop of the 80s and 90s was played live by musicians and these four fresh Brits want to fly the flag for the rest of their teen generation who want to make their own music, not somebody else’s.
Headlining, will be hotly tipped TRIBES, whose simple, clean songwriting filtered through warm, fuzzy disjointedness has seen them described by the NME as “the uncharted middle-ground that separates Pavement and The Courteeners.” The band have amassed a cult following and their kick-ass live shows saw them personally asked to support heroes, The Pixies at their show at London’s Troxy. Their twisted gorgeous pop songs look set to take Lo-fi all the way to popstardom.
WILDER dance to the same raucous jam-band tunes as Friendly Fires and The Rapture. Their thumping, vocoder-fied pop blitz presents a yearning peon to summers gone and the promise of ones to come. The band are signed to Rough Trade and having toured with The Strokes and recently played the NME Radar tour, Wilder are fast emerging as one of the best young live bands in the country.
LIFE IN FILM’s brooding pop anthems are redolent of, amongst others, Nick Cave and Kings of Leon. Hailing from London, the band’s sound combines an English punk / new wave sensibility with American cosmic, albeit low-fi, country airs and graces to create a compelling dark pop soundtrack.
