Not Squares
Synthwave act Not Squares formed in 2008 in Belfast. They began with a post-punk sound described aptly by OTR's Jim Carroll as 'Thrash-dance'. Over the years their sound has channelled that angst into a more refined pop sensibility with sharp disco edges. Today their live set includes the chaos of hit 'Asylum' alongside the refined grooves of newer electro tracks such as 'Simpler Vibe'.
Not Squares toured Japan with Miaou in late 2011. They have played Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds and Latitude festivals in England and Electric Picnic, Forbidden Fruit and Indiependence in Ireland. They recorded a BBC Radio 1 session at Maidavale Studios for Huw Stephens and have received much airplay on stations throughout the UK, Ireland and beyond.
Their debut album ‘Yeah OK’ was released in 2010 to favourable reviews. They are close to completing album 2 with producer Tom Fox. It promises to be a record that you will return to again and again.

ADULTROCK is a shimmer-house project from Kildare native Gavin Elsted. Invoking the sounds of scene forebearers Blondes and Mount Kimbie, the music has shifted from the more laidback sounds of 2012's Loves EP released on Dublin's Long Lost Records to a more dancefloor-conscious entity, all the while maintaining the slightly off-kilter musicality that he has become synonymous with. His last single In The Shade was highlighted by BBC Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac as one to watch and with both original material and remixes forthcoming, 2013 looks to be quite a busy year for the man behind the synths.
