TMB @ LaL: Getting to know our stage (pt 1)

If you missed it, we have already had a chat with our headliners, Strong Asian Mothers, about the TMB stage at Live at Leeds Festival. So now it’s time to delve into the acts who grace our stage during the rest of the day.

We have previously featured some of the brilliant people that you’ll find on the stage at Headrow House, but we decided to put together a quick guide on everyone that will be with us on April 29th.

First up, the six acts playing between 12pm-5pm.


17:00 – Yellow Days

Yellow Days, aka George van den Broek, is a 17-year-old making waves with his debut EP, Harmless Melodies. The bedroom writer, producer & singer (and BOY can he sing) put the record out on Good Years, a label which has housed the likes of Banks, Lil Silva and Francis and the Lights to lots of positive praise.

“Yellow Days’ sound hits at the darker side of blues to create tracks full of raw honesty and melancholic melodies that clutch at your heartstrings.” – Wonderland Magazine

“A boundless young talent with an admiration for timeless vocalists such as Ray Charles and Howlin’ Wolf, Yellow Days is in it for the long haul.” – The Line of Best Fit


16:00 – Noctürn

There is no information online about these Londoners. There’s no songs, no pictures. Just a Facebook account and a Twitter account which features 6 tweets. 4 of them praise Noctürn for their live set. Come see us at 4pm to discover what this band are all about!

“Our aim has always been to give special performances that paint an honest lyrical picture of modern Britain. When we create music, we try to draw the audience in, rather than play outwards.” – Noctürn


15:00 –  Kllo

How would you feel if one of your tracks had been played over SIX MILLION times on Spotify? Pretty good right. How about if you actually had two tracks that had reached that mark, with one other close behind? Kllo, an Australian duo, know exactly how it feels. Their EP Well Worn has received support from a multitude of Spotify’s official playlists and it’s easy to see why. Make sure you come to Headrow House to catch a rare UK performance!

“As retro-garage exponents go, it’s as exquisite as early AlunaGeorge, with extra experimental flourishes to prove their underground credentials.” – The Guardian (New Band of the Week #101)


14:00 – LAMIA

Originally from London, but now based in Leeds, LAMIA is a 21-year-old singer/producer who has received support from Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1 as well BBC 1xtra, BBC Introducing, Amazing radio, and Indie Shuffle. Last week she put out ‘Not Mine’, a dark and moody, electronica track that is due for release on April 22nd.

“A master class in dark electronic pop” – Circuit Sweet


13:00 – White Kite

There isn’t many people who can boast that Villagers remixed their debut single, but White Kite are one of those acts who can. Located in London the four-piece released ‘Swans’ in January this year, receiving praise from the likes of The Line of Best Fit, Wonderland and Hilly Dilly. Below is the original, non-remixed version.

“What a joy to dance around the room and make the remix. What a groove! What a riff!” – Conor O’Brien (Villagers)


12:00 – Kell
