Mammoth Penguins & Friends
Mammoth Penguins bring their new album “John Doe” to London, which tells the story of the people who were close to a man who has faked his own death, only to return years later.
Mammoth Penguins formed in Cambridge in 2013. They released their debut album Hide & Seek in 2015 on the late great Fortuna Pop! label, putting them in the excellent company of bands such as Martha, Comet Gain and Chorusgirl. After playing shows across the U.K. and Germany, and a live session for Marc Riley’s BBC 6 Music radio show, the band hatched a plan to work with other musicians on a side project. This side project became the John Doe album
Norwich trio Mega Emotion is made up of Iain on guitar, Lisa and Jan on keyboards, all of them sing and play drums/percussion over electronic beats. Iain describes their sound as “an alternative soundtrack to the film Tron.”
Since forming, Mega Emotion have won Steve Lamacq’s Roundtable new music selection on BBC 6 Music, seen their demo material play-listed as a 6 Music Recommends track of the week, and been championed on Radio X / XFM and by BBC Introducing.
Deerful is Emma Winston, a keyboard player, singer and producer based in London. She writes lush, sad, romantic electropop about feelings on synthesisers small enough to use on the bus.
Her self-engineered and produced debut album, Peach, is a bold and ambitious 11 track debut long player, released less than two years after writing her first song. Peach is an album about affirming the ordinary and vital, about the everyday things that provide comfort to you in difficult times, and about finding your own way to push back against the expectations that constrain you. It traces a narrative of moments of contact between people, especially between women, and above all celebrates the small moments that make up a life.
