Birthday Card are a 5 piece from Brighton whose music style is best described as a concoction of melancholy pop, a whirlpool where 80s new wave comes colliding with 21st-century synthpop. You’ll hear sun-kissed guitar riffs, pensive vocals and infectious earworms throughout their songs.

Described as “pop hitmakers in the making”, they’re well versed in live shows having played a plethora of them throughout the year, bringing their passion and energy to the stage to give you a set like no other. With three incredible singles under their belt – ‘Heartstops’, (which has had 28k+ views and streams across platforms), ‘Berlin’ and ‘Something Like Heaven’, Birthday Card are certainly ones to watch for 2019.
