“It is like Beatlemania down the front when they go on. Boys are chanting, girls are screaming, everyone is dancing or at least awkwardly jumping into each other. Not that Twitch don’t deserve it” – Steve Lamacq

Originating from the rolling hills of the South Downs, Twitch blend smooth jazz-infused chords and catchy emotive melodies to create a mixture of melancholic and upbeat love songs, taking influences from modern artists such as Corbin, King Krule and Steve Lacey, as well as older artists such as Miles Davis and Ray Charles.

The Glassy-Eyed Dogs

The Glassy-Eyed Dogs are a cross-breed of hip hop and indie music.

The hip hop dynamic is majorly (and obviously) constructed of 90s East Coast/ West Coast rap conflated with 2018s UK hip hop scene. Big influences that the duo admit to (and are easily noticeable within their repertoire) are Rejjie Snow, Jesse James, Kendrick Lamar and Biggie Smalls.

The indie dynamic is perhaps less dominant yet still easily discovered in the instrumental stage set up and in Jim's vocal performances. It brings a retro feel and a certain coolness (for lack of a better word) to the soundscape. It's hard to delineate but it's instantaneously bold.

Both genres are massively dominant in todays music industry, perhaps the most dominant with note of current festival lineups, but the two genres remain rarely, successfully conflated.

This cross-dynamic gives the Glassy-Eyed Dogs a really different sound, yet it will feel instantly familiar. You'll struggle to find such a paradox in any UK outfits at all nowadays, especially one that actually works so specifically. The pairs synergy and chemistry is immediately enticing — a lyrical and groovy ingenuity from their hip hop counter-part fused with an indie coolness and retro-guitar based set. You might not like their sound, but you'll almost certainly remember it.
