Communion are very pleased to be bringing together a fantastic line-up of new music for their club on May 4, which happily coincides with the May Bank Holiday weekend! In their order of appearance on the night..

Based in Bristol, Ema Sierra is a writer, musician and teller of intimate stories with a voice that floats steadily over a distant, droning guitar. There is a murky backdrop to these hushed whispers and tiny moments of violence.

Folly & The Hunter came together in Montreal, made up of Nick Vallee from Vancouver, Chris Fox from Sussex, England, Laurie Torres, a francophone native of Quebec of Haitian/Spanish heritage and Phil Creamer a Montreal musician and videographer. Folly & The Hunter attempt to explore the bittersweet; the beauty in discomfort.

Jack Garratt's track 'I Couldn't Want You Anyway' was quietly placed up on Soundcloud two months ago, since then it has clocked up over 100,000 plays. His live performances are mesmerising

The five-piece band Beautiful Boy from the south coast create rousing guitar pop songs that they describe as cinematic. They're set to release a single in May. We love their track 'Home'.

Hailing from Portland, Oregon, the young turks of Rare Monk have a sonic resilience that's like everything and nothing you've ever heard. In 2014 Rare Monk release a limited edition 7" AA-side single with new songs 'Splice' and 'Sleep/Attack' via B3SCI Records. The songs showcase the next frontier for a band who venture toward a lauded career, capturing the sheer energy of an incredible live show, bridging a sound for the masses and that of music appreciation.

Osca are a four-piece band based in New Cross, south London, whose sound was described by the blog Pigeons and Planes as "emotionally charged, slow building and subtly catchy". Their anthemic track 'Blood' was recently Zane Lowe's Next Hype and is even more impressive when played live

Crowns are a folk punk band from Launceston in Cornwall, formed in 2010. The band consists of lead singer and guitarist Bill Jefferson, bass player Jake Butler, mandoliniist Jack Speckleton and drummer Rob Ramplin. Their rousing live set is sure to get the party started!
