BBC Music Introducing London Lexington to host

5 August 2021 Book tickets

BBC Introducing returns this August with a stellar line up. London Lexington once again plays host to BBC Music Introducing, welcoming three new artists breaking through in their field. MALADY, WET LEG and POLICE CAR COLLECTIVE will all perform on Thursday 5th August.

 

MALADY

Fusing musical elements from dub, post-rave, early dubstep and IDM with formative indie guitar music, Malady draw inspiration from day-to-day living, focussing on conversations and social observations.

The band’s debut single ‘London I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down’ was released last year as part of the Nice Swan Introduces compilation. Meanwhile recent single ‘Famous Last Words’ received praise from So Young, Dork, NME, Far Out and Gig Slutz.

 

WET LEG

WET LEG’s noisy lo-fi sound draws inspiration from 60’s surf rock whilst giving a nod to contemporaneous acts like Best Coast, The Strokes and Alvvays. They are a mix of trashy, scuzzy indie-pop juxtaposed by infectious sugary melodies and lush dreamy vocals.

 

POLICE CAR COLLECTIVE

POLICE CAR COLLECTIVE might be inspired by the likes of The Smiths, Andy Warhol and The Velvet Underground, want to restore the mythos behind being a rockstar and have a burning desire to delete The Internet, but this mob aren’t interested in nostalgia.

Instead, the group - formed by Frankie and Simon a little over a year ago and based in Liverpool - want to offer comfort to a generation being battered by social media anxiety and millennial growing pains with art that refuses to settle inside genre lines.
