Aurora at Concorde 2
Aurora Aksnes is a young singer-songwriter who crafts dark pop music of rare depth. Aged 19, she is an autodidact and has been writing songs for almost half her life. “I’ve had lots of practice, but I never dreamed about standing on a stage or being famous,” she says. “That wasn’t what I wanted. All I knew is that I needed to write music for myself.” With a string of festival showcase dates lined up for 2015, Aurora finds herself caught between excitement at people being able to hear her music and the same nervousness she’s always associated with live performances. “I just want people to hear my music and I hope they can find something useful in it,” she says.

MO at Concorde 2
Ørsted grew in Denmark and wrote her first song when she was seven years old. A pop obsessive as a child, she became involved with politics, punk and the antifascism movement in her teens, leading her to form the “noisy, trashy electro-pop punk band” Mor aged 18. But already she was restless and writing new songs on her own, trying out a variety of sounds and styles on her laptop, necessiting her transformation into MØ. In 2014, she released her debut album No Mythologies To Follow, a unique blend of bedroom beats, soul-punk-electro-R&B and pop harmonies.

After ten incredible years of doing this non-stop, they feel like now is a good moment to take a break and spend some time concentrating on their other projects. They want to make this tour a celebration of everything they've achieved so far. The band will also headline the legendary Avalon Stage at this year's Glastonbury Festival.

Poliça at Concorde 2
‘United Crushers’ is POLIÇA’s third full length release and most remarkable album to date. The band, which includes Channy Leaneagh, dual drummers, Drew Christopherson and Ben Ivascu and Chris Beirden on bass with producer Ryan Olson at the helm, collectively wrote the album in Minneapolis in the winter of 2015 during their first true break from two years of touring. They recorded it at the renowned Sonic Ranch Studios in El Paso, nestled just a few short miles from the US/Mexico border. The new album builds on POLIÇA’s signature synthesizer and percussion-heavy sounds with more complex arrangements and a bigger, crisper hi fi punch due to the new approach they took to writing and recording together, all in the same room.
Be enthralled by this electro rock band and book a room at The Gullivers Hotel to fall asleep in our beds with their songs in your head!

Akala 10 years Tour at Concorde 2
10 Years of Akala gives one pause for thought – here is an artist that had it in him to keep his fierce independence when it was not fashionable, has performed in over 30 countries, released 6 albums, two books and has been a tireless voice for education and social justice in the UK and all over the world. Akala does so much it can be easy to forget that first and foremost he is an amazing musician. This anniversary release reminds us of that and the growth of a talent that has toured the UK and globally, all whilst being largely ignored by mainstream radio for the past decade. His live show is 90 minutes of relentless tracks, backed by intense and stunning visuals, live drums, a DJ and with no need for a ‘hype man’.
