‘Tizane’, a band from South East London, United Kingdom and recently released their latest album, ‘Forever Is Nothing.’ Tizane bring together elements of Pop, Rock and alternative music to create a sound that is uniquely their own. Their music is characterised by memorable hooks, thought-provoking lyrics, and an irresistible blend of live instruments and electronic production. Similar artists include: Paramore, Olivia Rodrigo, Phoebe Bridgers, Wolf Alice
ARCHY AND THE ASTRONAUTS
Archy & the Astronauts use gritty, hard hitting riffs with driving walls of sound to grasp their audiences with energy and tenacity. The band has gathered influences from across all genres of music, executing their sonic vision with witty lyricism and catchy hooks. With unmatched drive and on-stage prowess, these up-and-comers bring a fresh and youthful exuberance to modern rock. ‘ABANDON THE MISSION’ is an open invitation to abandon all rational ideas in the name of liberation. Capturing the ferocity of the band’s on-stage prowess, it is an explosive example of how this three-piece can make noise like a thirty-piece. Stuffed to the brim with high-energy riffs, the track is a torrent of sonic energy. Exploring ideas of escapism, the lyrics reflect a feeling of hopeful desperation, and seek to weaponise the feeling of dissatisfaction that modern life can bring.
“Endearing, capable, and free, the band bleeds out a creative, complex sound that remains familiar to a wide audience…” – RockLynx Magazine
A VOID are Camille Alexander – lead vocals, guitar / Aaron Hartmann – bass / Omar Moron – drums
A VOID are a self-styled 3 piece rock band based in London, UK. They fuse the spirit of sonic grunge to a DIY punk aesthetic fueled by Boursin Cheese and pickle juice. Influences include Sonic Youth, Hole, Deftones, Bjork, Daniel Balavoine, Charles Aznavour. Formed in Paris by singer/guitarist Camille Alexander in 2015, the band unleashed their first EP,
Roses As Insides, in June 2016, before cannibalistic tendencies got the better of original drummer Roman Zaborski and bassist Robin Dickinson. Camille quickly enlisted the hard- hitting drumming skills and harmonious vocals of Marie Niemiec, before they sought exile in London. The band gigged as a two-piece until they discovered their bassist, Aaron Hartmann, lurking on a park bench. The band independently birthed their debut full-length album, Awkward And Devastated, in November 2018, and celebrated by performing dual album release gigs at The Windmill in Brixton and Supersonic in Paris.
In March 2019, A VOID were the only band that featured female musicians to be shortlisted from 300 applications for the Northern Exposure/INmusic Festival contest, and were invited to perform in the final at the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool. The band self-released their second album Dissociation in September 2022, from which they released five singles: Sad Events Reoccur, Stepping On Snails, Newspapers, 5102 and Sick As A Dog. Each of these singles comes along with a music video with unique sets carefully imagined and
crafted by the band themselves, directed and edited by frontwoman Camille Alexander, featuring paper planes, snails crawling on their faces, and piles of newspapers. Dissociation was created during 2020-21 lockdown, recorded, mixed and mastered by Jason Wilson whose production credits include You Me At Six, Don Broco, Dinosaur Pile-up and Reuben.
Stepping On Snails received over 46 000 plays on Spotify since its release in August 2021 and Newspapers, 39 000 since April 2022. Both track have been featured in major Spotify editorial playlists such as All New Rock, Smells Like Stream Spirit, Volume France and Post-Grunge Appreciation. Three of the singles from Dissociation have received national radio plays on Ouï FM and RTL2 (France), Radio X (UK) and Radio FM4 (Austria).
The band celebrated the release of this second album with a packed show at the Shacklewell Arms which they organized themselves, and a live showcase and signing of their 12” vinyl (distributed by Punk Fox Records via Rough Trade) at Rough Trade East. In February 2023, A Void played their first ever shows in Germany, supporting SUN (FR/DE), and
Sorry (UK) on their Cologne and Hamburg show in the mythical Molotow club, as well as playing a sold out headline show in Berlin at Schokoladen. The band follows this tour by the release of ‘2023’, a tongue in cheek single about the end of the world which was aired Alyx Holcombe’s show on BBC Radio 1 as well as getting included into major Spotify playlists such as All New Rock and Alternative Noise. A VOID consistently play incendiary shows across their native Paris and adopted home city of London, and frequently spread their chaos further afield to other cities such as Brighton, Nottingham, Liverpool and occasionally venturing into Europe (Netherlands, Germany) ! The band are available for gig bookings, birthday celebrations, wedding receptions, fromage shop openings and any event requiring a heavy dose of “buzz-saw grunge pop that combines bitter grit and a self-
effacing lyrical charm…” (The Vapour Trail).
A VOID have performed shows for a variety of emblematic live music venues in the UK and France, including Concorde 2, Bus Palladium, the Cavern Club, The Dome, Belgrave Music Hall, Molotow Club and have shared stages with Sorry, Calva Louise, The Wytches The Pearl Harts, SUN, Skating Polly, The SoapGirls, Hands Off Gretel amongst many others. The band win over new converts at every show they perform and have built up a significant social media presence. They are currently recording their 3rd album with Grammy winning producer Shuta Shinoda, expected spring 2024.
