Darwin Deez is coming to Leeds’ Belgrave Music Hall on 15th May to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his debut album. The NYC kingpin and original bedroom indie artist will be celebrating a decade of his eponymous breakthrough by performing the album, including hits “Constellations”, “Up In The Clouds” and “Radar Detector”, in full at these special shows. Upon its release in April 2010, Darwin Deez’s debut album was met with universal praise from international media. Now, in order to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the release, the album will be performed in its entirety at a number of live shows across the UK. Renowned for the most entertaining performances, with added choreographed dance routines, don’t miss your chance to witness a rare insight into everything a pop star should be, and yet so rarely is. 

Twin Atlantic celebrate the 10-year anniversary of their seminal BRIT Certified Gold album ‘Free’ with a limited-edition deluxe vinyl and their ‘10 Years Of Free’ tour which sees them coming to Leeds’ Stylus on May 15th. Spawning singles such as ‘Make A Beast Of Myself, ‘Yes I Was Drunk’, and the soundtrack to the astonishing Red Bull Stratos jump, ‘Free’, the album catapulted the Glasgow natives from local clubs to headlining theatres across the world.

On 25th May the sun will shine. This has been guaranteed by the people at Live At Leeds who will have their inaugural summer In The Park event at Temple Newsam on that date. The Bombay Bicycle Club headline but the five stages in the park also feature Holly Humberstone, The Vaccines, Dream Wife and a host of the very best indie bands. There are a few tickets left so hurry up and bring the sun screen!

■ Brooke Combe

New soulful signing for Island Records, Brooke Combe, who has already been attracting some major fans. Brooke will be supporting Miles Kane on his UK tour in May including a show at Leeds’ O2 Academy on the 29th May. The Edinburgh-born Combe has recently unveiled her brand new single ‘Miss Me Now’ on Island Records which harks back to her heroes of soul music – icons like Diana Ross, Gladys Knight & Whitney Houston who were introduced to her by her mother and grandmother when she was a child. A perfect way to end the month after Live At Leeds!

Sophie Powers recently announced that her debut EP ‘Red In Revenge’ will be released via Set Records. The collection will include ‘U Love It’ and last year’s singles ‘Clearview’ and ‘Greed. The EP is brimming with the spellbinding energy of Sophie Powers’ unique hyperpop-punk hybrid and unique artistic vision. With her new take on a myriad of genres, Sophie is pioneering her own “hyperpunk” lane which you can jump in to on September 11th at The Key Club in Leeds

Nina Nesbitt returns with her new single this month, ‘Dinner Table,’ On the track, Nina’s instantly appealing voice leads a production that’s both sophisticated, understated and growing in splendour as she reflects upon the lives of the women in her family. Speaking about the track, Nina told me, “I wrote ‘Dinner Table’ about the three generations of women in my family. It tells the story of the parallels and differences in our lives, growing up in different decades, but the magic of gathering round a table and talking for hours still hasn’t changed.” Expect a UK tour in November.

The Reytons have quickly risen from home-town heroes in South Yorkshire to one of the hottest new indie-rock bands in the UK.
