Formed in 2017 and influenced by bands such as Paramore, Connexion is an alternative pop-rock band from the Isle of Wight.

Connexion’s music has received extensive regional radio station play. Their newer material (to be released soon) builds on their established pop-punkesque sound to create a unique, more indie influenced sound that is often described as Paramore-meets-The 1975.

Avocado Sunrise

Formed in the latter half of 2016, Avocado Sunrise’s guitar-driven indie sound brings pleasing tones to all ears.

With Jake’s distinctive vocals backed by the strong rhythms of George, Patrick and Finn, supplemented by guitar effects aplenty, they sound quite like no other. After self-producing and releasing two singles ’17’ and ‘August’ on major platforms to great avail, they have gathered a dedicated fanbase around the Isle of Wight and South coast of the UK, and are currently working on an EP for release in 2018. Look no further if you love all things fruity, bright, and indie.
