The Young Promoters Network, a local network full of passionate music loving young people, are bringing four of South Wales’s best new bands, including three hometown artists, for a night designed to showcase the exciting future of Welsh music.
With origins from the nearby Cynon valley, Glass Giants with their Pop-Rock styling’s similar parallel to that of Fall Out Boy triumphantly return to Merthyr with their biggest headline Merthyr show to date at The Redhouse on Saturday 23rd May. Building up a following across South Wales, which has seen them gain prestigious airplay on BBC Radio Wales, Kerrang Radio, 100 regional stations and their D.A.N.C.E. music video getting screen-time on Kerrang TV. The guys have recently supported one of the world’s hottest new Rock bands Against The Current and are promoting their Romesh Dodangoda (Kids in Glass Houses, Twin Atlantic) produced EP ‘Cocktails & Bikinis’
All the support acts are from Merthyr and have been carefully handpicked by the Young Promoters Network for the show, with a diverse selection of music from what is currently happening in Merthyr. Main support comes from The Plan, a gritty Rock & Roll group of spiky young contenders mixing Indie and Britpop with a distinct British flavour. The band have been played across a variety of New music Radio programmes from Adam Walton’s BBC Radio Wales show to Shay’s New music hour on Nation music and selected on the weekly Dave Owens playlist.
Next on the bill, Notice, a completely new youthful Indie-Rock five-some with looking to break into the local circuit and wow their hometown crowd. Finally introducing Merthyr’s vey own Eady Crawford, the latest Crawford sister aiming high with her soulful voice and harmonious sound. Already getting a live session on S4C’s ‘Heno’ and Radio play on BBC Radio Wales she’s wasting no time in being another talented success story.
