Don Coyote, a play on the name of the foolish Spanish nobleman, are a three-piece indie-rock band from Newcastle. They met when teaching together in the North East, and quickly discovered their music taste and style was very similar. In 2020 they released their first singles, Fresh Start and Fall of Hyperion, followed by their debut EP ‘Don Quixote’s Tinder Profile’ in 2021. Their tracks have received widespread acclaim and seen regular spins on BBC Radio Newcastle, Nova Radio, and Indie Rocks, and were one of BBC Introducing in the North East’s Tips for 2021. They have been gigging in the North East and London to an ever-growing audience, with a sound that is best described as a bit jazzy, a bit rocky, and one that will certainly get you grooving. Each live set is different, with the band being keen on improvising their lines during performances.

The band has been performing since 2019, and from the beginning knew they were a perfect fit. They have been gigging in the North East and London and releasing a number of singles and an EP. Their sound is a bit jazzy, a bit rocky, and will certainly get you grooving. Their live set is a raucous, sweaty and bouncy affair.

IN THE TRUNK
https://hotvox.co.uk/artist/in-the-trunk/IN THE TRUNK is a recently formed band from London who blend garage rock and dreampop to deliver a unique kaleidoscope of sound. They have released their debut single ‘Glue’, an energetic rejection of confinements that is accompanied by a surreal yet addictive music video. Spawned out of the solo work of Archie Valentine, who had success with singles such as the hook filled ‘Lovedon’ and the ‘Man of the Dunes’ EP, the music the band now creates takes on darker and more developed tone. They are set to put out more singles and an extended play very soon.
