Good Foxy / Jekyll / Bang Up To The Elephant
Good Foxy began with their heroes Cream, and recent successes Tame Impala in mind, & have soon developed their own ethereal, unforgettable sound. After the self-financed recording of an acclaimed album whose diverse charm is now catching the attention of radio stations around the country and across the world, the band has cemented its fearsome live reputation with slots at festivals in 2017 including The Great Escape, Y NOT, Solfest and Beat-Herder, also nailing slots for the sold out Kendal Calling Festival, and Beat-Herder in 2018.
With a new album due on the way and various huge festival slots in the summer of 2018, this year looks to be a huge one for the ever formidable Good Foxy.

Since their 2013 inception, Jekyll, a thrilling and hard-hitting four-piece from the North West of England, have been unrelenting in their dedication to creating and performing music.
Originally all from Blackpool, the members of Jekyll now live in Liverpool, Manchester and Blackpool and perform regularly around the North of England. Taking inspiration from a wide and eclectic pool of influences, Jekyll’s music is known for its expansive, melancholic soundscapes, dynamic mood shifts and visceral intensity. Likened to artists such as Muse, Radiohead, Placebo, Smashing Pumpkins, Editors and Depeche Mode, critics and audiences love the band for their ambition, originality and professionalism.
2018 brought many fantastic opportunities to Jekyll as, immediately after stepping off stage at The Great Escape Festival, they were signed by the prestigious ‘Fierce Panda’ off the strength of their live show. Since, Jekyll have released an EP through the label, which has received a wealth of national radio play from Steve Lamacq (BBC RADIO 6) and John Kennedy (Radio X).
‘This is a release that makes you feel like everything around you is ending, the apocalypse dawning and time slipping away. But you’ll be okay with that, because you could do a lot worse than this being the last thing you hear’ – Vulture Hound on ‘Wounds’
With recent festival appearances at The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Tramlines Festival, Threshold Festival and Rebellion Festival, Jekyll have proved that they have the confidence and the appeal to win over any audience. This, coupled with support slots for artists such as Vukovi, October Drift, 485C, Demob Happy, Glass Caves, and numerous sold-out shows in Manchester, is evidence that Jekyll’s momentum is fierce and their immediate future is looking very bright.
‘Operatic, anthemic rock’ – Louder Than War
