In February Chess Club, National Anthem and Neon Gold combined forces to launch a new monthly spin-off of their New Shapes series at Notting Hill Arts Club. After the runaway success of the launch party, which saw ASTR and The Silver Palms tear the roof off a packed house, we've enjoyed great shows by Broods and MØ, Tove Lo and Kill J and Wet, Laurel, Mapei and Zella Day to name but a few.
We are massively excited to have one of our tips for 2015, K Stewart, headlining the last NS of the year. Going out with a BANG!!! New comers on the scene Rage On Gold will be kicking off the party in style with their infectious blend of electro pop.
Chess Club's very own OceaŠn will be on the decks showcasing some of the beats that have inspired his rise to fame in 2014.
New Shapes has been showcasing an eclectic mix of the best new and emerging artists from both sides of the Atlantic at the CMJ, SXSW and The Great Escape over the last two years - previous artists to have appeared at New Shapes include HAIM, Chvrches, Sky Ferreira, Jungle, Wolf Alice, MS MR, Charli XCX, and Swim Deep
