The Jackson Pollock / Sundog / Whitelight / Chloe Mogg
The Jackson Pollock
The opening words sent all the way from Italy by the Bologna based duo..
“So we won’t bother you about how we met, what we eat, what are our favorite colors, other ‘famous’ bands/people we know”
Tells you a lot already about the attitude to The Jackson Pollock. They play raw and loud, they aren’t about pursing hi-fi production; instead choosing to use a Tascam 488 cassette recorder, a post-war P.A. tube amp and homemade stompboxes to craft their sound… Personally I’m pretty excited!
The transcendent and visceral energy of Sundog combines the garage punk of early Nick Cave with a ritualistic and meditative ambience. Imagine Patti Smith swimming in a David Lynch movie.
The songwriting heart of this band is the charismatic Julianne Bastock, who skilfully navigates in a swarm of crunchy and ethereal echo-guitars, driving bass and beats and the delicate swathes of well-placed electronics.
Be transformed with the joy of this high paced, contemporary take on a post-punk, shamanic-like experience.
Whitelight are a Birmingham two piece, starting the year with their debut music video for “Working Land” combining massive hooks with an octave dropped guitar, punchy vocal and a synth wielding drummer that will blow your face off.
Delivering a mixture of musical influences, Chloe creates a musical journey with her songs and own arrangements of covers.
As a young singer-songwriter she brings life and colour to her performances, with her ability to tell a story with only her voice, acoustic guitar and unconventional effects.
Supporting artists such as Jon Gomm, Nick Harper & Quill, and playing hundreds of festivals all over the UK, Chloe is in her natural habitat on stage. With debut EP “Thalamus” getting radio play on BBC Radio 6 & BBC Introducing Hereford & Worcester, the songstress is now in the recording process of her debut album.
