Manon Meurt is Vojtěch Pejša (guitar, vocals), Kateřina Elznicová (vocals, guitar), Jiří Bendl (drums) and David Tichý (synths and piano). Sparkling songs formed by soft and transcendent vocals, hypnotic bass lines, evolving drums, and reverbed guitars are a trademark of this young quartet from the Czech Republic. Manon Meurt hail from a small town Rakovník west of Prague. The British shoegaze movement of the early 90s and bands such as My Bloody Valentine, Lush, Ride or Slowdive have shaped the band’s unique atmospheric pop.

As a tandem, Hannah Pidduck (vocals / guitar) and Clara Townsend (vocals / drums) form charming garage-outfit ARXX. Underpinning their infectious, kinetic energy is a knack for contagious power pop hooks and heartfelt lyricism, with a sharp affinity for the songcraft of Dolly Parton, Kate Nash and Bright Eyes. On stage, ARXX unites political statements with personal catharsis, as passionate as it is inspired.
