JOSH GRAY

Sol y Sombra - 12.45am

Following his smash hit debut single We Should Run which saw Ireland native Josh Gray skyrocket to the top of the charts, Gray continues making sizeable and impressionable waves on the pop scene. Though only 21, Josh Gray’s career in pop music is well- founded and he utilises this tenacious background in the industry to his advantage, resulting in flawlessly crafted pop songs befitting of his own musical influences such as OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, Justin Timberlake and Maroon 5.

Josh Gray’s ability to marry groovy melodic riffs to his high falsetto makes his tracks uniquely energetic, and this is particularly evident on his second single Cut Loose, where an explosive and irresistibly catchy chorus booms out from an otherwise feel-good pop anthem. Cut Loose grabbed the attention of the playlist curators upon its release, and the track has been playlisted across several curated playlists on the platform.

Both We Should Run and Cut Loose serve as masterclasses in pop music-making, and Gray has ambitions to follow the course they’ve chartered with future projects. Of tracks yet to come, Josh posits the mantra that “...ideas always have potential, I’m excited and can’t wait to share this journey with everyone and anyone...”

KRISDEBERG

Sol y Sombra - 11.30pm

Krisdeberg formed after a chance meeting at a party in Moby’s house, still high on orange juice and vintage drum machine grooves. The newly bonded four-piece seized this moment of karmic kismet and resolved to make some music.

Drawing on influences ranging from LCD Soundsystem all the way to James Murphy, Krisdeberg are a completely self-produced, self-recorded project. Locked away in their studio and armed with synthesisers, drums/machines and some noise; they began work on their first collection of songs.

Months of work have resulted in the release of their debut single Lies. A snap-shot our all too common habit of deceiving ourselves set against a rhythmic, synth driven soundscape.

Lies is available on Spotify, iTunes and all major streaming services and stores.

The BarN - 10.15pm

CHERYM are three cheeky, loud mouthed girls from Derry making their own unique brand of noisy garage punk rock. Writing songs about themselves and songs about their friends, they have exploded onto the scene in Northern Ireland in 2018 with ferociously paced tunes like “Take It Back” and “Telepathic Kelly”. 


 In only a short space of time they’ve received airplay across BBC Radio Ulster, Radio 1, and BBC 6music, with Philly Taggart and Tom Robinson already touting themselves as fans. Classy Pop/punk - The Irish Times.

As fearless and energetic onstage as they are on record,CHERYM have put some serious miles on the road already having performed across Ireland and Scotland, supporting the likes of Canadian punk Legends D.O.A, Healthy Junkies, XSLF and fellow Northern Irish noise makers, …And So I Watch You From Afar. Despite only arriving on the scene this year, they were invited to perform at the one-off BBC Introducing Live Broadcast, kicking off the Belfast leg of The Biggest Weekend 2018. 

CHERYM released their debut EP “Mouthbreatherz” in late April 2018. Shortly after the girls were nominated for two awards at the NI Music Prize. They were up for "Best single" for their song Take it Back and “Oh Yeah contender” for their contribution to Northern Irish music.
