A concept built around the female body. Every curve attracting and reflecting light differently and each individual body being different to that of another.

Big Bad Wolf
Big Bad Wolf is a London based band featuring washy guitars, ambient vocals, brassy hooks and deep grooves…this distinctive sound arises largely from the band’s consistently egalitarian process of group composition. From the band’s first experimentations in 2014 there has always been a primary focus on the blend within their slightly unconventional line up and how to work that into a contemporary sound whilst still honouring the improvisational element of the jazz tradition.
Hip-Hop/Trip-Hop 8 piece Halfpenny Pass are a passionate collective brimming with musicality and potential, fusing contrasting genres into their own unique sound. Playing with artists including Bombay Bicycle Club & Andreya Triana, Halfpenny recently released their debut EP ‘halfcut’.
