STRESS RELEASE + BATH TUB + LOUIS CROFT
The Future Sound Project returns to Actress and Bishop to bring a line up highlighting some of the best new acts across the Midlands.
Stress Release – The band was formed around December 2017 after finally finding all members. Most of us have been friends for years, however, through the last year at college we finally came together to create the sound we have always looked for, but never found before in the past with other projects. We’re a great group of mates that come from different musical backgrounds with prefered tastes in music. Our sound is a bit of a mash up of plenty different genres, and we’ve never really been able to put a name on it ,but we mainly play indie rock music with a reggae influence.
Bath Tub are a three-piece, Alt-Rock band from Stoke-on-Trent, comprising of: Olly – Vocals and Bass, Brandon – Drums and Tyler – Lead Guitar; All aged 18. We play our own energetic tunes, reminiscent of bands like Royal Blood, and are causing a storm in our local area after selling out both local gigs this year, and pioneering a unique ‘Chainsaw-esque’ bass guitar lead sound that’s unlike any other band of the genre.
Louis Croft Music – Louis Croft is a 19 year old indie/folk Singer Songwriter from Nottingham. He is influenced by Jake Bugg, Donovan and The Beatles. He plays regularly in music venues around Nottingham, including Rock City after being a finalist in Nusic’s Future Sound of Nottingham 2018. He released an EP called ‘See the Sun’ with local label Phlexx Records in the summer of the same year and has been featured 12 times on BBC Introducing in the East Midlands, with Dean Jackson dubbing him ‘one of the most prolific artists round here’.
