16:15 - UBIK

UBIK is the sound of paintbrushes, chisels and creeping bedroom heartbreaks. Redecorate to an alien world. Drones are demolition, basslines and beats, blueprints for buildings.

Tired of your surroundings? Don’t move. Listen. Transformation beats travel agents. UBIK is never home.

17:00 - Moonbow

21 year old artists Eleanor Hardwick and Beau Hulse formed Moonbow in 2013 with the desire to approach pop music with the same careful intention found within conceptual art. Hardwick, based between Oxford and London, has worked in the visual arts from a young age, gaining attention from BBC Radio 4, The Independent, Dazed & Confused, The Guardian, Vogue, i-D and many more after she uploaded her work online as a teenager.

Meanwhile, Reading-Bristol based Hulse experimented in making music from childhood, and has always found a deep love in combining his passion for visual art with his various musical projects.
Using a mixture of electronic hardware and found organic instruments, the songs sit in a middle ground between trippy pop and transcendental soundtracks.

Helghyer makes pretty music. Music that tells stories. Music that makes you want to walk barefoot through the woods with your hair billowing in the breeze. Music that makes you think that maybe, just maybe... magic really could exist.
