CUBA + THE BUG CLUB + THE WHITE NOISE + OLIVER BEARDMORE
CVBA is a two-member band project formed in the summer of 2013.
Having played throughout Europe in the past years (Spain, Germany, France, Belgium, UK) CVBA is currently focusing its activity in England, particularly London and Birmingham.
Its sound is hard to classify, but it takes influences from sludge-garage-noisy-grunge rock, Latin American rhythms, Spanish folk music and transnational sounds in general.
The Bug Club
The Harmonic Rock of The Bug Club Combines a mix of Blues, pop and Psychedelic influences. The band formed early 2016 in South Wales and consists of Tilly Harris, Sam Willmett and Dan Matthew.
They are currently recording two singles and already have a self titled ep. In the summer of 2016 they had the privilege of opening for Status Quo and Steve Harley and at Caldicot Castle and have had radio play at BBC Radio Wales, Radio Cardiff and others.
The White Noise
Formed in Birmingham at the beginning of 2017, The White Noise blend elements of classic rock and alternative rock to create an original, distinctive sound. Citing bands like Black Sabbath, Radiohead, Led Zeppelin, T. Rex, and The Strokes as influences ensures that The White Noise are not a band that can be easily categorised.
Oliver Beardmore is an 19 year old singer songwriter, formally of the band Pretence, who’s been writing songs since late 2013. Since May 2015 he has gigged extensively in both Birmingham and Norwich, one of these gigs being a sold out show at the O2 3 in Birmingham with Pretence. Oliver now play regularly as a solo artist and possesses a varied catalogue of around 35 songs of varying styles. Inspired by the likes of Oasis, Arctic Monkeys, John Lennon, The Strokes and The Smiths, Oliver aims to progress as far as possible into the music industry with his heartfelt and resonate pieces. His first single ‘Lullabies’ was released in May 2017, and his second single ‘Sirens’ in October of the same year. Has received praise for his “proper songs” from Dave Rowntree of Blur.
