XFM’s legendary indie-disco rolls on. May features full live sets from a trio of XFM’s ones to watch followed followed by an all killer, no filler dance party with mistress of ceremonies, XFM DJ Jo Good. This month we have:

The Last Party

Formed when Manchester songwriting duo Manton & Williams decided to get a band together and take their unique blend of rock-pop-soul to audiences beyond the bedroom, The Last Party certainly are going far:

“The Last Party have got plenty to be optimistic about” – NME

“Liam is a just a f****** monster on stage, one of the last frontmen standing” – Idris Elba

“The new bastions of rock & roll – we love this band” – Soccer AM

Pixel Fix

Slick indie rock from this Oxford based four piece. Their latest release ‘Fall’ is a fresh sound perfect for enticing you into the bands upbeat repertoire of tunes with harmonious melodies with a groove worthy beat.

Shy Nature

Mixing elements of jangly sixties songwriting with the influence of more recent New York garage groups, Shy Nature create timeless guitar music centred lyrically around growing up. Rasping organ, revolving guitar lines and singer William’s distinctive vocals drive their energising live show.

And of course, Jo & Hattie will be providing music that rocks until the early hours; from game-changing classic anthems to new talent such as Peace, Jake Bugg and Foals, you’re guaranteed to be dancing to the very best rock, indie and alternative music spanning both time and genre.
