Shitxyz
Tim Miller is a songwriter from the Potteries and singer with the wild Rio de Janeiro based Garage Punk band, [std].mdl. He deconstructs pop songs in the name of Brechtian alienation. Everything he says is a lie, but his heart is true. He cheerfully sings of his own failure, the failure of others and the failure of society in general.

 

He is very much buzzing to return to Manchester.

Cynthia's Periscope
Manchester based, beautifully strange lofi electronica pop. Varying from tender introspection to brutal catharsis, his experimental confessional beats are as danceable as they are weird.
"One of Manchester's finest purveyors of art synth. Mixing punk, electropop and metal bashing among all manner of things, it's catchy and pleasant one minute and terrifying the next."
