** SIFAKA [] **

Vesent []

Since forming in 2014 Sifaka have become an integral part of the vibrant Leeds music scene. Dubbed ‘soul rock’ their sound is raw, powerful and straight from the heart. Sitting at the crossroads between the soulful Southern sounds the Alabama Shakes and the heavy blues of Led Zeppelin.

Their mesmerizing live show is a sweat-soaked rollercoaster of poetic storytelling lyrics, infectious interlocking grooves and soaring solos. At any one moment their music travels through Mardis Gras in New Orleans, Woodstock, CBGB’s in downtown New York and swinging 60’s London. As accomplished multi-instrumentalists and improvisers their arrangements have a rich palette of colours as they take their songs to the brink of collapse, breaking them down into tiny particles of rhythm and melody before building into huge choruses.

Their latest release ‘In The City’ - produced by GRAMMY-nominee James Towler – perfectly captures the energy of their live show and is available on all major music streaming services. Following on from a year supporting Kaiser Chiefs and Pete Doherty at Bingley Music Live, and Imarhan and Melt Yourself down at the Brudenell Social Club they are preparing to release three singles over the summer followed by a UK tour.

Vesent []
Vesent are a new 4 piece indie rock band based in Leeds. After being a three piece band under the solo name of the frontman, Jack Cockrell, for several months, they decided to take the plunge into being a full band and adding to the line-up. Vesent are currently new to the scene, but have already played in reputable venues such as the Lending Rooms and LS6 Cafe. With hard hitting drums tightly locked in with the bass and rhythm guitar, supporting a lead guitar with a beautiful sense of melody and vocals full of so much energy, Vesent pour their everything into each performance. 

When it comes to song writing they combine the melodies of pop with the raw attitude of rock to create a truly unique sound. Amongst many others, the band is influenced by the likes of Foo Fighters, James Bay and Mumford & Sons. They are planning to release a succession of singles this year to introduce everyone to the band.
