Fve of the most promising new musical talents from Wales will be given a showcase in Cardiff this weekend.
New Sounds Wales was launched in 2008 to promote the best in emerging music acts.
To mark its landmark fifth birthday, the organisation has put together a special event at Chapter Arts Centre.
Five acts will be taking to the stage on Sunday from 5pm.
The Keys, Sion Russell Jones, The Vestals, Laurence Made Me Cry and Brothers will all be showcasing their sounds.
The Keys rose from the ashes of much-lauded Murry The Hump and counted Alex James of Blur, Damien Hirst and the late Joe Strummer as fans. Re-born as The Keys they have become one of Wales’ finest live bands.
Sion Russell Jones released his debut album, And Suddenly, in 2010 and has since made his mark with a unique and infectious vocal backed up by intricate guitar melodies and cracking choruses.
The Vestals are a new band who have recently released their debut single, Perfect Pain. With echoes of the best in ’80s guitar sounds they have already been described by the NME as “mighty promising”.
Laurence Made Me Cry create sounds of introspection and have just released their debut album The Diary of Me.
Brothers were born out of last year’s hot tip The Knox. Featuring two sets of brothers they are packed full of youthful psychedelic exuberance.
New Sounds Wales’ fifth birthday celebration is at Chapter on Sunday from 5pm. Tickets are £9 adv and £12 on the door. Call the box office on 029 2030 4400 or visit www.chapter.org
