Before Breakfast / Dead Slow Hoot / Oh Papa / Van Houten

Four of South Yorkshire's finest soft rock bands are coming together at Hyde Park Book Club for a night of goose-bump-inducing, chin stroking, high brow entertainment. The acts are currently listed in alphabetical order because we'll be pulling the lineup out of a hat on the night!

Before Breakfast:

Currently supporting the release of their first EP 'Sticky Sweet' with huge recent shows at The Albert Hall, Manchester and the O2 Sheperd's Bush, this supergroup deliver devastatingly personal lyrics through intricate vocal harmonies and sparse instrumentation. 

For fans of Jesca Hoop, Bat For Lashes, C Duncan and The Roches.

Dead Slow Hoot:

Bittersweet, melancholy, anthemic alt rock made in Sheffield.

Dead Slow Hoot combine poetic lyricism with rich musical textures and sparse sonic landscapes to fill your ears with melancholy musings. Critically acclaimed by the likes of BBC Radio 6 Music, Backseat Mafia and English Rain Records.

Oh Papa:

Sheffield's resident lounge lizards. Smooth indie rock served over ice with a dark ale chaser. Recent shows include a tour in suuport of the legendary Shonen Knife.

For fans of Whitney, Richard Hawley, Mac Demarco and The Walkmen.

Van Houten:

Shoegaze superstars from Leeds matching delicate chords with sweet textures and lovesick lyrics. Recent shows include a support slot for Jay Som, and an appearance at the Clue Records Xmas Showcase.
