The dark confines of Southampton’s The Joiners are just beginning to fill as Basingstoke pop-punk outfit We Deny take to the stage. Their set is twenty minutes of easycore riffing and singalong choruses, belted out with bravado by vocalist Loren Mancini who takes ownership of the stage for this brief time. Their tried and tested sound isn’t for everyone but We Deny’s upbeat presence gets the fun going for the evening.

 

Self-professed ‘dark-pop’ quartet Hows Harry are an altogether different kettle of fish, their sound is an intricate blend of indie, pop and electronic elements. Bolstered by an academy venue sized sound within a two hundred capacity sweatbox, there’s no doubt they have made a lasting impression on all the eyes and ears in their vicinity, even if the crowd is yet to learn the words.
