Preview: New Sounds Wales celebration at Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff

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
