What? Barfly and XFM Xposure presents a stellar line up including quirky Essex songstress Polly Scattergood, London electro trio CHEW LiPS and Wildbirds & Peacedrums the so hot right now experimental Swedish duo. For Fans Of: St Vincent / DFA / Lykke Li.

Headliner Polly Scattergood is a 22 year old singer-songwriter from Essex. She possesses a voice that ranges from sweet to powerful to tear inducing, often in the same song. For Fans Of: St Vincent, Kate Bush, Bat For Lashes.

CHEW LiPS – aren’t these guys headlining billes like this yet?! Obviously not but it really shouldn’t be long. We’ve been following them for a while now. Powerful beats, keys and guitar compliment the formidable voice and stage presence of sassy front lady Tigs as she prowls around the stage and often crowd. For Fans Of: DFA, Moloko, Chromatics.

Wildbirds & Peacedrums are a husband-wife duo from Västra Götalands lä, Sweden. They’ve received some rave reviews for their second album ‘The Snake which sees a marriage (get it!) of the sweet diva vocals of Mariam Wallentin and the primitive,hypnotic percussion of her husband Andreas Werliin. After reports of some special performances at SXSW 2009 this promises to be a treat. For Fans Of: Lykke Li, Volcano!, Indian Jewelry.
