An exciting year and what can only mean an even more diverse turn in modern music. We start with the psychedelic folktronica sounds in the North West, Liverpool. Lo-fi DIY pop is drenched in mystical harmonies, medieval style beats and blended with a 60-esque hippy vide to make beautiful and hypnotic music. Our first band of the month will leave you feeling magical. Guys and gals, we give you Stealing Sheep

US: Tell us what makes up your sound and where you draw your influences from?

Rebecca: We play synths, guitars and boomy drums…We draw our sound from nature, films and feelings. We want to create atmospheres and for our music to be very visual…As individuals we all listen to very different music from each other which makes for a very eclectic sound so the listener can probably here many different influences coming from each of us..Such as; Broadcast, Can, Dutch Uncles, The Velvet Underground, Jefferson Airplane…
