War Against Sleep with support from Phonseca and Paper Fishes
price: Tickets Below

Information:

War Against Sleep
Duncan Fleming is a genius of a songwriter walking a razor sharp tightrope between deranged humour and classic pop music. War Against Sleep is his ongoing battle against the absurd waking dream that passes for life, in which he plunders the hidden treasures of a thousand charity shop records, writing songs that tingle the spine, move the soul and lift the spirit.
“Sexy psychedelia” NME
“Gloriously ridiculous stuff” The Wire
“ In the War Against Sleep winning is not even the issue. It’s the cheating that counts. Now dance, damn you. Dance until you are on fire” Nick Talbot

Phonseca
Phonseca is the ambient/electronica/synth pop project from Bristol’s much respected keys/synth player, Matthew O’Connor.
He’ll be promoting his well received debut album Between a Dream.
His training as a classical pianist has influenced the sound, which in addition to Phonseca, led to composing Library Music where his work has been synched on primetime T.V. like BBC1’s - The One Show, Channel 5 programs and National T.V. in Poland and Romania and more.
The Phonseca sound draws on his influences from the likes of Ryuichi Sakamoto, Joy Division, Craig Armstrong, Primal Scream and Scanner (who remixed I See Stars for the album).
Steve Lamacq - BBC6Music (UK)
“This is a great album, really interesting stuff”

Dave Goodwin - PennyBlack Music (UK)
“People say that a good album or piece of music is one that you will remember for a long time. This is one of the contenders already for that end of year top ten. Marvellous!”

Sean Gonzalez - New Noise Magazine (USA)
“Between a Dream floats into the room with genuine grace. Phonseca utilises ambient drones to swell in and take anxiety out of the room”

Paper Fishes
Literate and rootsy indie rock band.
Paper Fishes are a Bristol-based indie-rock band, formed by singer-songwriter Andre Levy in 2018. Their debut album, Instant Happiness, will be released by the indie label Irregular Patterns in November.
