Myriam Adams are an alternative pop band formed by Freddie Hammond, Ethan Forde, Archie Shanahan and frontman Jacques Hete. They provide arena friendly catchy tunes with an extra touch of edge and personality. Their influences range from bubblegum pop to punk and they have been quoted as rebellious and genre stereotype breakers.
Within their first year of being together they have already attracted the attention of BBC Introducing that have played several of their tracks,accumulated over 35,000 streams on Spotify alone, played several festivals such as the main stage at Godiva and sold out headline shows.
So far, they have released 2 singles from their upcoming EP titled “Sexy Suburban Sadness”. With one song incorporating elements of Punk and the other sounding like a modern twist to a dark synth pop song from the 80’s, the question is… what should we expect from their next release?
Lilleburn, AKA Ross Tidmus, is a Birmingham based indie pop outfit influenced by 80’s alternative acts such as The Cure, Tears For Fears and Gary Newman. The love for modern pop sounds and the personal lyrics from his mind, he forms a fresh, artsy style of indie-pop.
Lilleburn spent the summer of 2018 writing, recording and self producing his electric indie pop music. Releasing his debut single ‘Boys/Girls/Hearts’ on September 30th of 2018, the song played multiple times on BBC Coventry and Warwickshire. Shortly after he supported BLOXX on a sold out show in Birmingham, Lilleburn was established in the indie scene in Birmingham. In December 2018, he had his first headline show in conjunction with the release of ‘Tell Me I’m Pretty’, which was also put on the A-list of BRUM Radio with the likes of JAWS and Jorja Smith.
After spending two years of writing and performing in his hometown, Ross has been developing his art form down a more promiscuous path. 2020 is the year that Lilleburn will finally reveal his next creation…
