DICE

Originally formed in Somerset by twin brother Ivan and Frazer, the line up was complete in late 2015 after meeting James and Dean at university in Guildford. China Bears have spent the last few years playing extensively around the UK, with notable support slots for bands such as Genghar, The Districts, To Kill A King, Geneva, The Howl & The Hum and many more. The band were selected as an official artist for the legendary tastemaker festival SXSW 2020 in Austin, Texas and made NPR’s acclaimed top 50 must-see artists on

the festival list.

After self-releasing 3 singles, China Bears teamed up with Fierce Panda Records for the release of their debut EP I’ve Never Met Anyone Like You, picking up attention from the likes of BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 1, BBC Introducing, Gigwise and Radio X to name a few. Last year the quartet performed a live session for Steve Lamacq on BBC Radio 6 Music in support of a trio of singles I’m Not Eating Like I Used To, Statue Still and Jolene, which were released throughout 2020.

Wild Cat Strike
Wild Cat Strike create a noisy-beautiful brand of alternative rock, brimming with post-rock and folk influences. Gigging since 2012, this Brighton based four-piece have developed into a formidable outfit, touring the UK festival circuit and throughout Europe, on the back of a series of critically lauded releases on the Small Pond label. Their first EP I Want to Be the White That Sleeps Inside Your Bones boasted huge instrumental soundscapes, with songs averaging 8 minutes in length, recent Wild Cat Strike works are concentrated into succinct and arresting songs that hook hard on the heartstrings, demanding repeat listens as they criss-cross in and out of chaos. The band bring their folk influences to the fore through acoustic oriented reimaginings, reworking their debut album Rhubarb Nostalgia on The Blood Orange Sessions, and expanding the Mustard Coloured Years EP with The Red Brake Light Sky Sessions. Here showcasing a more introspective side to their diverse, chameleonic indie pop.
