“Portishead doing a Tarantino soundtrack” Huw Stephens, Radio 1
“With Smoky-voiced femme fatale Hatty Taylor on vocals, London-based three piece Vienna Ditto mix wild-eyed rockabilly riffs with sparse, atmospheric electronica.” Q Magazine
Female-fronted electronic blues duo Vienna Ditto will be releasing their debut album on 8th June 2015 on Ubiquity Project Records with a new single ‘A Happy Car is a Stolen Car’ due out 1st June.
Hatty and Nigel first met when he started teaching her guitar around 2000, when she was 11. The lazy tyke never practiced but did have a most arresting voice. After a couple of years they lost touch, but bumped into each other in the street in 2009.
They recorded an electronic version of Johnny Cash’s Ring of Fire the next week, and the week after one of their own compositions, Long Way Down, which somehow ended up being played on Huw Stephens’ Radio One show. An appearance on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury Festival followed and the band have since been given a Maida Vale session for Tom Robinson on BBC6 and have appeared on Channel 4’s Hollyoaks Music Show.
They have been given airplay on Radio One, BBC6 Music and XFM and received glowing reviews in Q Magazine, Artrocker and The Fly (RIP). They have also had their music used for several advertising campaigns, the most recent for Saks Fifth Avenue. Their music will also feature in Sacred Heart, a film by award-winning director Kosta Nikas, due out in 2015.
Londoners Fossa create ethereal sounding indie with metronomic electro beats and intertwining vocals which have seen them compared to acts like Wild Beasts, Alt-J, and Grizzly Bear. The band also have garnered attention from The Independent and The Line Of Best Fit.
