A celebration of the loud, melodic and melancholic, this will be the homecoming show for Dwell's August UK tour, alongside Kanadia (Oxford) and local favourites Ex Agent.
--
Dwell were born out of an entwining of multiple projects by Toby Ijbema, George Thornton and Louis Cherniavsky. After bringing in Jake Purdy on drums and multi instrumentalist Emma Coulston on saxophone and violin the five piece have been steadily perfecting and honing their soft, melancholic post-punk that contrasts experimental playing techniques with bare-bones expressionism.
Their two latest singles, Consider Me Blind and Can't Go Back were recorded at Bristol's Humm studios by Dom Mitchison and mastered by Slowdive's Simon Scott.

KANADIA are James Bettis (guitar/vocals), Tim Lucas (drums), Melissa Marshall (synths/keys) and Jack Ashworth (Bass). A four piece alternative rock band, renowned for their exciting stadium sized live shows on the Oxford music scene, with their cathartic songwriting style, which has resonated with their cult of followers from the UK to Mexico and everywhere in between.
KANADIA's debut self titled album was released on 2nd March, 2019 to a sold out launch show at O2 Academy Oxford.
KANADIA have performed at Truck Fest in 2018, alongside PEACE, JAWS and Bad Sounds, Common People Festival, BBC Introducing, SoFar Sounds and headlining the O2 Academy Oxford multiple times. They have performed at venues up and down the country including The Bullingdon, Hare and Hounds, Night and Day Cafe,The Cellar, Jericho Tavern and Sunflower lounge.
Ronan Munro, editor of accredited Nightshift Magazine (Radiohead, Foals, Glass Animals), has predicted a bright future for KANADIA, reviewing each release with great anticipation.

Sitting restlessly between post-rock and free-jazz, Ex Agent throw together dissonant symphonies of sax and piano alongside frantic guitars, drums, and haunting vocals. Combining elements of gonzo journalism, post-punk, and jazz, the five piece sprinkle a taste of noir into a salty No Wave cacophony..
