The Future Sound Project Presents: 

The Future Sound Of Cov

A 2-night music festival at The Tin at The Coal Vaults 
Featuring 11 bands playing over 2 evenings 

Friday night Headliner:

George Pannell
George Pannell started making music when a number of failed school band attempts prompted him to begin playing solo shows across Birmingham at the age of 16, using just a loop pedal and a sample pad. During this time, he released two demo tracks, The Truth and Royal Affair, in late 2017, the latter of which received backing from BBC Introducing WM. 

George played his first full band show in December 2018, and has since played alongside the likes of SUGARTHIEF , FLING, BLOXX and SPINN, as well as selling out the iconic Sunflower Lounge in Birmingham.

In January 2019, he released his debut single ‘Fade Away’ (recorded with Ryan Pinson). This was met with a lot of positive feedback, with its dreamy indie pop sound incorporating influences from the likes of fellow Brummies JAWS and Swim Deep, to the shoegaze of My Bloody Valentine and the jangly guitars of Her's. It was labelled ‘a great record’ by Alex Noble on his BBC Introducing show.


Saturday Night Headliner :

Candid deal in a brutal emotional honesty funneled through songs as sharp as they are soothing. Searing guitar riffs, irresistible drum beats and a backbone of honest, unreserved lyrics deliver a commanding live show, not to be missed. After 3 hometown sell-out shows and an impressive string of support slots including Scouting For Girls, The Hoosiers, and The Pale White; Candid’s infectious indie rock has won the hearts of the local music scene with an unchained drive to take their music to the next level.

Barbdwire (Coventry)

Barbdwire tread the path between the deepest darkest roots reggae, blistering ska, Rub-a- dub, social conscience and explosive live performance. Barbdwire are undoubtedly the most exciting and original prospect to emerge from the murky depths of Coventry’s back-streets for some years.

Barbdwire –are a seven headed beast comprising of Trevor Evans aka the unshakable Coventry legend 'E.T Rockers' on drums, Chelston Belgrave on bass provides the solid, militant rhythmic backbone and Danniella ‘Dee’ Evans the bubbling specialist. The brass section is comprised of John ‘Babyface Assassin’ Pudge on trumpet and Dale Gibson on Trombone, together creating those those Tijuana and smoky New York basements sounds. Ryan Every‘s guitar echoes with blistering blues licks via Nashville and Brixton. Up-front is Cherelle Harding who’s melodies tread the path from the sultry and seductive to rabble-rousing war cries. With melodic prowess and lyrical conviction to both stop tracks and move feet.

Having torn apart dance floors, blown roofs and received several radio plays including reggae pioneers David Rodigan on BBC 1xtra & Dennis Bovell, Barbdwire have also graced the stages of prestigious events such as Skamouth, Godiva Festival and Folkestone Ska Splash, and shared the stage with such reggae legends such as The Specials, The Pioneers, Hollie Cook, Neville Staple, Jerry Dammers and Roy Ellis.

With their intoxicating stage presence Barbdwire's manic, loyal and frankly well-dressed fan-base grows ever quickly with each incendiary performance. Their Debut Album ‘Time has come’ has set an incredibly high standard and was produced by none-other than the legendary Grammy award-winning producer Roger Lomas.

Barbdwire innovate with contrary forces and bring a heavy sound which cannot be easily categorized. This 7 piece ‘mix and blend’ and while others may think outside the box; Barbdwire completely destroy it!

Pitch Black are Michael Hodgson and Paddy Free. Having pumped their way through New Zealand’s electronic music scene since their inaugural performance at the annual Gathering New Year's eve festival in 1996, they have spent the subsequent years rousing dance floor punters, generating rave reviews, winning awards and gaining thousands of fans across the world.
Hard to box into a single audio 'genre', Pitch Black is a combination of musical journeys. Their sound is distinctive; ranging from organic ambient beginnings and layered soundscapes to skanking keyboards, cutting acid riffs and thumping rhythmic grooves, with dub being the glue that holds their sound together. One critic has described them as like "Orbital meets King Tubby, or Rhythm and Sound in Technicolor".
It is their live show that really makes Pitch Black stand out from the rest of the crowd, both sonically and visually. Their tracks take on an added dynamism and their performances reveal the dialectic behind the band - Paddy wants to do it for the crowd, Michael wants to do it to the crowd. Visually they are in another dimension thanks to Michael's cutting edge visuals.
They have toured the world relentlessly, playing everywhere from Amsterdam to Zagreb and the streets of Las Vegas to the Australian outback, supporting acts such as Coldcut, Skream, Easy Dub All Stars and System 7 along the way.

John Southworth - No Inner Mission https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgACvi8YePU

"Miracle In The Night' is incoming through Tin Angel, and it finds John Southworth yet again digging down in the deepest reaches of his soul" CLASH Magazine

“Beautiful and benevolent one second and unsettlingly medicated the next” Pitchfork

"Subtly gorgeous lead single. “Second Childhood” is an understated new wave track" Stereogum
"John Southworth’s “Loving You” feels like healing" The Fader

"Orchestral chamber pop collides with cinematic indie" Q Magazine

"Southworth's dark, absurdist sense of humour and restless creativity might be comparable to that of Destroyer or Beck" Exclaim!


We awake to find Southworth opening up a new song bag. Falling into the ellipse amidst torn fabric, conspicuous birds, shadows in a looking glass; not only is everything here a sign - everything is a miracle. With miracles comes transformation, and consequently destruction, followed by release wherein tears distill the greatest miracle of all: a song.

Southworth is an archaeologist of love, sifting through relics and artifacts, the compost of this world’s memory, revealing stories that feel caught in slow motion, in mid-air, no beginnings or endings. Everything has always existed in this chaotic present; once distant stars now the altars of Tin Pan-Schubert Alley.

The songs of Miracle in the Night read like a stoic’s recital of an untraceable lieder. Carefully, each is a gradual, unfurling cadence. You may recognize his longtime band ‘The South Seas’ - gentle and steady, calm and restrained, playing just before dawn, a solstice cabaret in a megalithic tower. The endless red curtains from the Lynch dimension rise and fall around you. 

In this world, John Southworth lives in Toronto with his family, teaches the art of song, appears in films and wanders the parks looking for clues. This is his 12th full-length release, arriving on the hooves of 2016’s Small Town Water Tower, which crosshatched a glam-pop ooze into the rigorous comparative mythology of 2014’s epic Niagara. Similarly rich with symbol and folklore and pristine melodies, Miracle in the Night offers us a delicacy of fantasy, focusing our attention into a state of constant revelation, alive in song.

London-based band Awalé returns with a new sound, Senegalese soul. Biram Seck’s soaring voice evokes messages of love and peace, underpinned by heavenly poly-rhythm groove explorations. Intense and spiritual Sabar Senegalese percussion and Afro-Latin drums conversations, weaving intricate guitar patterns and horn lines with catchy bass riffs. Like a spinning kaleidoscope of sounds, their tunes travel from afrobeat to soul, deep Afro-jazz to Latin. Awalé is on a mission to experience happiness together in these fractured times.

‘A truly magical and uplifting cross-cultural collaboration, bringing together Afro-latin, funk and soul elements with a Senegalese twist. The wonderful voice of Biram Seck and Thibaut Remy’s compositions make for an unmissable combo. Must See!’ - Tim Garcia (Jazz FM/Musica Macondo)
