The local festival Pop Revo continue to impress us with their line-up, and todays two new names are celebrated here at the office!
Both names are british, extremely relevant and trend setting.
The Pop Group (UK)
It’s about 35 years ago today, since The Pop Group made their breakthrough with restless and political tunes, spiced with dissonance, but in just a few days they’ll release a brand new album! The album is called Citizen Zombie and will take them on a tour – including a stop at our beloved Pop Revo.
The Pop Group have been inspiring almost every post-punk band you know today, but huge names like Nick Cave and Sonic Youth have both declared them as a really important inspiration to their music.
Dean Blunt (UK)
So how do you define the music from Dean Blunt? You don’t! All you do is give it a listen, and let yourself be provoked by the playful, detail based and surprising music. Go ahead, give it a listen already!
