Lost In The Manor bands pack out launch shows

Two of the bands on our label played supreme London gigs last week to support recent releases. First, CHILDCARE headlined The Waiting Room in Stoke Newington, performing a set that included new single ‘Film Club’ to a sweaty full house. The band were ably supported by Bokito and Sad Palace.

The following Saturday was Cocoa Futures’ turn to roll out EP ‘Blue’ with a rammed show at The Sebright Arms in Hackney, going down a storm with a performance sprinkled with the four tracks from the release. Coby Sey and KYLYPSO had ignited the party vibes before them.
