Hands up if you know how many different classifications of pop music exist?
If you said 11 – well done. According to some sources you would be correct! According to others pop music is simply what’s ‘popular’. That’s fine but I need to categorize things ok!

‘Trick’ – Kevin Pearce
For some performers, music is an escape; for others, perhaps, a release. For Kevin Pearce it’s definitely all that – but for the Essex-based singer-songwriter, it’s also much more. From an early age, he thought music could help him be who he wanted to be; but first, Kevin had to imagine, then create, that person.
‘Moema’ – Leisure Tank
Leisure Tank is raw, minimalistic, analogue rock with unpredictable song structures and heavy, danceable grooves. K.C.’s voice and poetical lyrics have been compared to early PJ Harvey, Anna Calvi and Leslie Feist. Leisure Tank is a indie rock with folk influences from London NW.
‘Foreign Kiss’ – Archie Faulks

Drift is the first official solo album of multi-instrumentalist Jana Sotzko. Having grown up in the plattenbau eastern part of Berlin, she has played in stylistically diverse bands and projects for over 20 years. Past and current groups include indie band DROPOUT PATROL and the experimental kraut trio SOFT GRID. In addition, she works as a freelance composer, especially in the fields of dance and performance. Drift, released under the alias POINT NO POINT, marks in many ways a return to early home-recording experiments with Tascam 4-track recorders and without a precise idea of what it all should sound like in the end.
