In more festival news, Amazing Radio are partnering with the North-East’s premier showcase of new music, Evolution Emerging! The festival takes over Newcastle’s Ouseburn valley and highlights the very best artists in the North East. We’re incredibly proud to be supporting the festival and each week we’ll bring you a stage by stage analysis. First up, The Star and Shadow Cinema; headlined by the MASSIVE Young Liar. It’s going to get crazy up in here. And not least because Amazing Beats‘ Mark Ryan is taking over the after-party!
Headliners Young Liar are The North East’s answer to gigantic-yet-snappy tidal waves of instrumental post-rock and have come far in their infancy supporting the likes of Three Trapped Tigers, I Like Trains, The Twilight Sad, Errors, Male Bonding and Ice Age.
Comparisons are rife to Explosions In The Sky, Errors and My Bloody Valentine, but the 5 piece maintain their unique make-up: ‘Post-rock can be disgusting, overblown and pompous but sometimes – sometimes – it can be enthralling, as Young liar show.’ (LostLostLost).
Onstage at 9.45pm
Hypnotic guitars and slow-build vibes conjuring Californian sunsets, yet not feeling out of place within the context of gloomy Teesside. Complementing their ever-growing fan base and string of recent shows, the band are set to release a video for their new single Clouds, embellishing their unique cosmic and atmospheric sound.
Onstage at 9pm
It’s 1978, a strange light races towards the heart of New York City. A lonely girl walks the forgotten streets of the South Bronx. Weaving through the broken glass and crumbling city blocks she finds an abandoned rooftop. As she shuts her eyes to sleep, a black pyramid slams into a derelict apartment building and disintegrates. Bathed in blue light, a shadowy figure emerges from the rubble…
Fans of the Drive soundtrack will love this.

Born of the frozen north, Ghosts Of Old Berlin create music that is at once immediate and dark. This four-piece is refining its self-attributed ‘doom pop’ sound.
