With Truck festival selling out months before it even takes place we’ve taken a look at five of the acts that you can’t afford to miss.
The Festival takes place between the 21st and 23rd of July and is based in Oxfordshire. Truck has grown at an impressive rate over the last 3 years and has single-handedly risen to become one the UK’s most popular medium sized festivals. For more details about the festival visit the Truck site here and you can also see our run-down of the full line-up here.
Below are five of the most exciting talents within music right now and are sure to rip up their sets in Oxfordshire come July.
Benjamin Coyle-Larner has risen at a rapid rate in 2017 with his debut album ‘Yesterdays Gone‘ receiving critical acclaim and support from many. Loyle Carner combines alternative hip-hop, spoken word, old school rap and everything in between to create a unique sound. His recent headline tour was well-recieved by many with shows selling out with ease. This is certainly a talent not to miss at Truck Festival 2017.
The Night Cafe
The Night Cafe are a pop-rock quartet from Liverpool that were established and formed by friends in secondary school. The Night Cafe have proved in the last 12 months that they are very much an emerging talent that cannot be ignored. Having already supported the likes of Sundara Karma and having graced the BBC Introducing stage at T in The Park last year, their continued rise appears to be endless. We wouldn’t be surprised to see them on every major festival bill come next year. Don’t miss out.
The Rhythm Method
Joey and Rowan make up The Rhythm Method. A pop-duet with a nostalgic and familiar sound yet a unique offering. They capture the mundanity of British life and their humbling and endearing lyrics are extremely reminiscent of The Streets. Coincidently, they’ve worked alongside Mike Skinner and have also befriended praise from Elton John, Matt Healy and Suggs. Having already featured on many UK festival bills and after supporting a headline Spector tour; their live performances are continually improving. Part of this years Dazed 100 list, these lads are a must see.
While the quartets debut album ‘Don’t say that’ was released in 2014 and remains their only full-album, they still cannot be ignored. Friends of Peace and having earned themselves a place on the NME‘s prestigious ‘New Breed Tour’ they are certainly effective at offering fantastic live performances.
The Glaswegian pop-duo offer indie-rock that has a sound reminiscent of the likes of Sonic Youth. They have toured with the immensely talented Wolf Alice and also The Foo Fighters. Honeyblood have two albums in their locker with their most recent, ‘Babes Never Die‘, having been released last year. Honeyblood never fail to deliver and are always a must-see regardless of whichever festival bill they appear on.
