Following its first instalment at The Garage on 14th October, ENJOYsugoi festival returns on 18th November, spotlighting some of favourite artists from Japan, alongside a packed line-up of great acts from all corners of the alternative/experimental music world.
Bringing together some amazing acts in an all-dayer at the Scala, headliners TRICOT will be joined by Natalie Evans, Yama Warashi, Poly-Math, Yumi And The Weather, itoldyouiwouldeatyou, and Holding Patterns.
ENJOYsugoi is the first major London event for the promotions arm of Brighton-based Small Pond following the recent hugely successful third instalment of their Bad Pond Festival in their hometown (which adds to their frequent live promotions in the city, ranging from rising indie sensation Boy Pablo to modern piano legend Olafur Arnalds).
Formed in Kyoto, headliners TRICOT have been bubbling since the mid-2000s; their unusual and distinctive sound brings a mixture of pop harmonisation, emotive vocals and complex rhythms. With fans all around the world, they have toured extensively in Asia, North America andEurope (including UK tour support dates for Pixies). They are joined on 18th November by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Natalie Evans, whose unique mix of folk, pop and classical sounds will be brought to life by an expanded full band; outlandish, Bristol-based psych/art-rockers Yama Warashi (the project of Japanese experimental artist Yoshino Shigihara); the technicolour, psychedelic pop of Yumi And The Weather; prog-laced instrumental three-piece Poly-Math, and more.
