THE MALTHUSIAN TRAP

Their self released debut EP Palpitations was pressed onto vinyl and received acclaim not just for it’s beefy sound but it’s aesthetic design qualities as it was an artistic collaboration with the critically acclaimed street artist Mr Skillmatik.
Ever since bursting onto the scene in Early 2016 The Malthusian Trap have played in virtually every city & town in the UK playing legendary independent venues in the process such as Night & Day, The Jacaranda, Amersham Arms & 229 Venue to name all but a few.
Their sound has been championed by many including blog writers, that public broadcasting company everyone has heard of and minor celebrities but there is no need to brag as the music speaks for itself.
The one thing that is consistent about The Malthusian Trap is that where ever they go they turn heads and for the right reasons. Polished sound, loud but melodic and lyrical content to make you stop and think as much as making you want to dance.

RedRooms are female fronted four-piece band from Manchester creating songs full of dreamy ambition. The Songs of RedRooms explore topics often shied away from or avoided in the 3-minute-form. All of which comes together to form a sound that is both dramatic and melodic.
“When worlds collide; RedRooms’ smashing 70’s new wave is fuelled by the exciting, emerging sound of yesteryears compelling NYC scene : RedRooms evoke the spirit of Television, Patti Smith and PJ Harvey into an emotional, driving cascade of guitars and soaring vocals – their 21st Century Pop Cult narrative and fuzzed guitar janglings also explore elements of our post industrial back streets littered with psych undertones. Refreshingly different.” manchestermusic.co.uk, March 2018
