THE NIGHT & DAY SHOWCASE
HAYES & Y
Hailing from as far afield as Bulgaria and Finland, indie-pop four-piece Hayes & Y have recently settled in Manchester in order to craft some infectious funky yacht pop, harbouring a somewhat continental feel that immediately sets them apart from their quintessentially British contemporaries.
The Bid’s style mixes Americana-folk with a British indie sensibility: imagine a Tennessee dive bar was dropped into a Northern council estate, creating a sound the Manc Review describe as “classically chiselled whilst creating a refreshing and original sound”.
SAM LEGG & THE ACADEMIC PEOPLE WATCHERS
