NEW FOR 2023 – THE GLOBAL COLLECTION
– a series of gigs & performances throughout the year featuring acts from further afield with a wide range of musical styles. Kicking off The Global Collection with a launch party on 10 December, are Isle of Wight band Plastic Mermaids (as part of their UK tour) and psych band Volleyball, who have played St James previously. Also on the line-up are local DJs and up & coming band SpaceSoul.
They’re surfers, they build their own effects pedals and they once sketched out the designs for a synthesiser played entirely by pigeons – but on their second full-length album, the endlessly inventive Isle Of Wight five-piece Plastic Mermaids are facing their dark side.
At the heart of Plastic Mermaids is the creative force of two brothers, Douglas and Jamie Richards, sons of a Gurnard boat-builder, who approach life like an art project, putting as much love into their band’s visual concepts and staging as they have into their unique brand of psych-rock and electronica.
Indie Psych band Volleyball, bring with them their unqiue sound, which they describe as – a bit shoegazey, wobbly guitar and synth sounds, ethereal cruising melodies with assured punchy drums.
