SYLVIE KREUSCH
Ghent-based artist Sylvie Kreusch is fast becoming one of Europe’s most impressive and exciting performers. Her groundbreaking music and visuals have already turned many heads in music, film and fashion. Kreusch is known for her bold, expressive lyricism and a keen ear for both experimental and pop styles.

COSMO PYKE
Cosmo Pyke is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from London. He attended The Brit School for Performing Arts, where he joined the ranks of well-known singer-songwriter alumni such as Adele, Amy Winehouse, Jamie Woon, Loyle Carner and others. For his lyrics, he uses his personal experiences of growing up in south-east London and mixes this with influences from reggae, hip-hop, jazz and indie. He is also a skater, graffiti artist and model. A versatile creative.

LIBRARY CARD

Expressive but thoughtful, abrasive but melodic, explosive but introverted: Rotterdam-based Library Card is a band of contrasts. This is reflected in the structure of the group, which is a tight unit of four totally different characters. The quartet began in the summer of 2021 and it doesn’t seem far-fetched to say that a sliver of turmoil from that period has taken hold in the band’s music, which swings restlessly between angular post-punk, beautiful post-rock and fast-paced garage. Even in a city known for its quirky guitar music, Library Card has quickly become a standout.

NEIL HOLLYN
With a head that goes every which way, just like his music taste (Sam Fender,The 1975 & Coldplay), Neil Hollyn writes tracks about existential headaches, fraught passion & stubborn habits. After his debut EP & a literal launch of 1 of Neil’s songs into space, he’s finally back on earth, with lots of new tracks you can scream, cry & dance along to. Indie pop with a touch of 00s brit rock.
