Limited advance tickets & Facebook event RSVP here!
All the People – www.allthepeople.co.uk
Brothers Ashley and Simon Arnold and Singer Curtis Dennie are ‘All The People’. Mixing analog synth’s with live drums and vocals, inspired by the psychedelic production of the 1970’s with a deep love of dance music, electronica and soul.
‘Imagine a more soulful Disclosure, or perhaps Hot Chip if they’d spent more time at FWD – sluicing together club sounds and pop nous, we simply can’t get enough of All The People.’ CLASH
‘A little bit of light in the dark, with iridescent synths bubbling up under Dennie’s heart-to-heart vocals, making it a slug of melancholy soul. ‘ DUMMY
Farrago – www.farragoband.com
‘The Oh, Beautiful Darkness E.P. is a scintillating and stirring work from an incredible force. Their music […] has a tenderness and heart but can elevate, rouse and dizzy without warning. The players are exceptional and there are few others out there who have the same blend in their locker. Cinematic sounds, lush guitar and soaring violins; silky bass, expressive percussion and soulful vocals – every component is considered and expertly performed.’ Musicmusingsandsuch.com
Downtown economists and champions of rhythm & skronk. Sax, drums, baritone, and lungs.

Review of track BREAK OF DAWN
Appropriately for a song of such positive intent – the championing of taking risks, living life to the full and immersing yourself in the present – ‘Break Of Dawn’ revolves around a supremely uplifting chorus that will inspire many a communal singalong. This addictive classic-rock anthem kicks off with a choppy guitar riff straight out of a Keith Richards masterclass, to which strident drums, rolling bass and potent synths are expertly attached. Singer Mudibu’s lung-busting, heart-lifting soul vocal implores us to “dance until the sun will rise” as ‘Break Of Dawn’ erupts into an arms-aloft, arena-sized behemoth given a contemporary electro-funk edge by swathes of overdriven synthesizer.
