Athletes In Paris, The High Dials, Mathew Sawyer And The Ghosts

Athletes In Paris are an Indie Pop band from Newcastle, UK. The band belly their innovative and catchy pop-thrills upon you with chanted gang-vocals, frantically muted guitar picking, Latin-percussion grooves and pumping bass lines - you could do worse than to Imagine Earth, Wind and Fire, Friendly Fires, Jack Penate and Prefab Sprout in one big northern melting pot, but then you'd only be getting an idea. Their highly anticipated single 'Borrowed Time' will be released on The Animal Farm, April 4th.

The High Dials are a psychedelic pop band from Montreal. Swirling guitars, 3-part harmonies and timeless songcraft combine to make anthemic power pop sometimes shaded with shoegaze and folk elements. Their recordings have been hailed by NME, Spin and the New York Post who called them a “must-see band”. They have toured extensively, including stints with Brian Jonestown Massacre, Neko Case and a recent support slot for Echo & the Bunnymen. “Anthems for Doomed Youth” is their fourth full-length album and sees them return to Rainbow Quartz Records, where they debuted in 2003. Anthems for Doomed Youth, The High Dials’ 5th release and their 3rd full-length is the band’s most authentic and mature work to date. It comes closest to capturing the energy of the band’s live sound and offers a snapshot of the band’s creative evolution, with triumphant returns to their jangly 60s roots as well as the moodier territory of later releases.
