Bel Casino

Bel Casino are very much a product of the South Coast... Life and love by the sea has worked its influence into their music in an evocative way. Whether you view the music live or lock into a recording, the sights and sounds of the streets and beaches they walk are brimming out of the songs.

The band's sound is about melody and meaning. They are looking to connect with an audience's spirit through tales of love and adventure, locked up in stories and metaphors.

The band has enjoyed a number of successes since getting together in late 2008, notably being semi-finalists in 2010's Dorset Music Awards, receiving critical praise on BBC Introducing South's Demo Panel and subsequently appearing as the live session band on that show, securing a live interview and acoustic session on Wave 105, recording and releasing their début EP "Seventeen", not to mention playing numerous sell out shows across the south of England.

Bel Casino are proud of their reputation as an ambitious, professional young band looking to make the most of every opportunity that comes their way!

Hot Vamp Club

Co-produced by Mick Whitnall (Babyshambles & future producer of Amy Winehouse, The Horrors), their long-awaited debut EP is being re-recorded in February for a mid-year release. Previews have already drawn comparisons to the ‘more sombre, beautiful end of The Maccabees catalogue.’ With fans ranging from Everything Everything to Flashguns, its no wonder its highly anticipated.

Indie-disco quartet Hot Vamp Club formed in early 2009 and have since been interviewed and featured on Radio One (BBC Switch), BBC Introducing (BBC 6) as well as included on the Best of Myspace Music and IndieFeed playlists.

Described by BBC Introducing as 'lovingly crafted, sincere Indie Pop,' their third demo was picked up by Topman US and 'Young Hearts, Slow Shoes' is now part of the Topman and Topshop UK in-store playlist, including the largest fashion store in the world on Oxford Street. Live, they've headlined the best venues across the South as well as having supported the likes of Flashguns and The Kabeedies on the way.
