Coming Up: Me and The Moon, Jerry Williams, Calum Lintott & Fugitive Orchestra (CloseUp x Portsmouth)

On the 21st February, we’ll be heading to The Wedgewood Rooms to bring you a spectacular line up that you won’t want to miss out on.

 

Topping the bill are Guildford trio, Me and The Moon, who will be performing their unique indie-pop sound for you to dance to. Lead singer Tamara’s exquisite vocal have been likened to that of Florence and The Machine and are backed up perfectly by guitarist Jonny’s vocals who also creates the dreamlike-pop riffs as their drummer Alex lays down the drums. The band’s first single ‘Run with the Wolves’ still stands the test of time with it’s laid back dreamy sound and more recently they released ‘It’s Alright’ with beautiful hooks and ethereal harmonies. Having toured with the likes of Flytes, Marsicans and Youth Clubs, Me and The Moon know how to put on an enjoyable performance, and one you won’t want to miss.

Homegirl Jerry Williams, whose last set sold out The Wedgewood Rooms, will also be on the bill to show off her exceptional take on the indie genre. Jerry has been working hard to set a name for herself, having self-released 3 EPs, toured the UK and festivals all across the land, and even had her song ‘I’m Not In Love With You’ championed by Radio 1 as a track of the week. Her charming persona and witty lyrics are the perfect set up for a live show as her energy radiates through her sensational vocals and phenomenal guitar playing. Expect to hear the charming ‘Grab Life’ that sings about seizing the finer things in life and the anthemic ‘Mother’ that has had over 5 million streams on Spotify.

Travelling along the coast from Southampton to join us will be indie-rock singer Calum Lintott. Heavy in guitars, his songs are satisfyingly boisterous. In 2016 he released the debut ‘Pin-Up’ from his ‘The Way It Is’ EP, a song about love that’s riddled with compelling hooks and an undeniable chorus. Calum’s vocals throughout his music are clear-cut and perfectly styled to the genre, as he continues to release upbeat indie bangers such as ‘Wonderland’ and ‘This World is Not For Turning’. Calum has supported Frank Turner and The Enemy’s Tom Clarke, performed at The Isle of Wight Festival and Common People festival, and will no doubt feel at home on stage playing for us. 

Make sure to get on down early for Fugitive Orchestra, who draws inspiration from Elvis Costello, LCD Soundsystem and Paul Simon to make remarkable music that sees him blending together elements of beatboxing, live-looping and guitar. Fugitive Orchestra aka James Tattingham started playing guitar at the age of 13 and later got bitten by the ‘open-mic’ bug. Ever since he has been creating his individual sound and for a taster of what to expect, check out his ‘Rules of the Riddle’ EP from 2017 including the indie foot tapper ‘First Past the Post’ and the energetic ‘You Are Here’.
