Latitude 2013: 17 Great New Bands To Discover


Daniel Woodhouse – aka Deptford Goth – is never short of R&B melancholy. Repeatedly compared to the likes of ‘The xx,’ the ethereal and brooding sounds of his debut album, ‘Life After Defo,’ are expected to haunt at the i Arena on Friday at 3.40pm.


Drenge’s concoction of garage punk and blues-rock has seen them compared favourably to the likes of Artic Monkeys. The Peak District brothers released their debut single, ‘Bloodsports’ earlier this year – expect some previews of their upcoming album at the i Arena on Saturday at 1pm.


The Leeds-based five-piece excited with their debut album ‘Pearl Mystic’ earlier this year, and Hookworms’ unique brand of psychedelic rock is sure to entertain at the i Arena on Sunday from 2.10pm.



The Aussie duo’s guitar-dance debut album married psychedelia-grooves with pulsating, baggy acid house. Jono Ma and Gabriel Winterfield perform as Jagwar Ma at The Lake Stage on Saturday.


Having played in a church and an abandoned factory, Money are now to play at the i Arena on Sunday at 11.30am. The four-piece are to preview their upcoming debut album at Latitude – exciting stuff as tasters have been few and far between.


Compared to the likes of Lana Del Rey, the sultry vocals of Danish singer/songwriter MØ are set to delight at The Lake Stage on Friday.


Sivu’s debut video that saw him filmed with an MRI Scanner whilst singing has ensured that he stays intriguing. Due to the play The Alcove Stage on Sunday, the Cambridge born singer-songwriter combines acoustic melodies with delicate electronic sounds.



Hailing from the midlands, the neo-psych group ‘Temples’ is fronted by James Bagshaw on vocals and guitar. After releasing their debut single ‘Shelter Song’ late last year, the group have since gathered momentum and are set to perform at the i Arena on Sunday from 4pm.


The Family Rain play what has previously been described by NME as “high-octane, hip-hop-inspired dirty blues-infused rock ‘n’ roll,’’ and the three brothers are to release their debut album this year. Watch them at The Alcove Stage on Sunday.


The contemporary folk artist Torres, AKA Nashville native Mackenzie Scott, will showcase tracks from her recently released album that was recorded in just over five days. The organic and brutally honest sounds from Scott are set to captivate at the i Arena on Saturday from 5.45pm.
