adv £13.20 or 4 day ticket £41.04
For the uninitiated, Mammoth Penguins are a 3-piece indie pop powerhouse, showcasing the songwriting and vocal talents of Emma Kupa (Standard Fare, The Hayman Kupa Band) backed up by the noisiest rhythm section in indie pop.
The sound is big, bold and confident, but maintaining Emma’s candid, heartfelt, confessional style of songwriting, and the jubilant power pop hooks that make Mammoth Penguins so special.
RANDOLPH’S LEAP (solo)
Randolph’s Leap started out as a pseudonym for the solo output of Adam Ross, and now includes up to 8 people in the full live band. The debut Randolph’s Leap album, Clumsy Knot, came out in 2014, with another four live and studio albums and a handful of singles across labels Fence Collective, Olive Grove Records, Lost Map and now Fika Recordings.
Their latest album Spirit Level is an upbeat, melodic indie-pop album full of personality, catchy hooks and memorable lyrics, rich in textural, polyphonic arrangements, and capturing the infinite charm of Adam Ross.
This ragtag team came together from across the wilds of London to play their own brand of angsty and/or spooky punk - defined by fierce basslines, humorously relatable lyrics, and a legitimate, concerted effort not to play the same three drumbeats over and over again. With heart, power, and oh so many feelings, this quartet one day hopes to master the art of playing really, REALLY fast.
Though initially formed for First Timers Fest 2019, they've continued to solve mysteries, play shows, and make pals across London and the South East.
