Sound City Feature : Siobhan Corcoran

WITH a week to go, our Siobhan Corcoran gave us her top five choices to see at this years Sound City Festival.

Spring King // Kraken Stage // Saturday 23rd

Discovering through The Music Manual, I'm so delighted that Spring King are taking to the Kraken Stage. A phenomenal Mancunian, Punk Pop, four-piece. Their album, Demons is fast, infectious and was one of my favourites albums of 2014. Want to see the next hottest act from Manchester? Look no further.

Peace // Baltic Stage // Sunday 24th

From Worcester, Peace express an incredibly experimental, unique sound. After great success from their debut album “In Love” back in 2013, there was great anticipation surrounding the release of second release, “Happy People”, peaking at no 12 in the UK charts. Their energetic capabilities will quell your Sunday blues.

Bill Ryder-Jones // The Atlantic Stage // Sunday 24th

With a modest career under his belt, Ryder-Jones has 4 critically acclaimed albums under his belt, with several others from his time in Wirral based, The Coral. Effortlessly beautiful, his tracks romanticise life, using his accent to craft a raw vocalism within his listing. 

The Vaccines // The Atlantic Stage // Friday 22nd

The Vaccines have come a long way since their debut in 2010. Releasing three studio albums and touring extensively have helped grow this quartet into one of the hottest bands around. Their track, “Handsome” from latest album, “English Graffiti”, was picked by Zane Lowe for his choice of Hottest Record. Arguably the epitome of British Indie Rock, The Vaccines will not disappoint. 

The Sundowners // The Atlantic Stage // Saturday 23rd

The Sundowners are the perfect band for a summer-time festival, everything about them conjures up hallucinogenic waves from Woodstock. The psychedelic quintet of Wirral boast influences from the likes of Fleetwood Mac and The Rolling Stones. Playing Glastonbury last year and gaining the attention of Paul Weller - you'd be silly to not to agree with the Modfather.
