  • Colleen Green is a fantastic pop punk singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles, writing bright, deadpan songs with a hint of melancholy. I Want To Grow Up, her second album for Hardly Art, was released in February this year and follows a newly 30-year-old Green as she carefully navigates a minefield of emotion caused by entering modern adulthood. It features JEFF the Brotherhood’s Jake Orrall and Diarrhea Planet’s Casey Weissbuch, who collaborated with Green over ten days recording in Nashville. The album has been met with widespread critical acclaim, with Pitchfork praising her “elegantly wry, acerbic, hooky pop style” and the Line of Best Fit describing her as a “one-woman Bikini Kill/Garbage cross-breed” writing “perfect surf-pop”. We can’t wait to welcome Colleen to Indietracks for the first time!
  • The Darling Buds are a cult indiepop band who were much loved by late BBC Radio One DJ John Peel. They formed in Newport, South Wales in 1986 and, after signing to Sony, saw their brilliant debut LP ‘Pop Said..’ reach the Top 30 in the UK Album Chart, and the band’s appearance on Top of the Pops as well as the cover of Melody Maker. In 1992, single ‘Long Day in the Universe’, taken from their third album ‘Erotica’, appeared on the soundtrack to the cult Mike Myers film So I Married An Axe Murderer, but the band split shortly afterwards. The band reformed for a one-off tribute concert in 2010, before returning again to appear at the Borderline in London in April 2014. The show generated such interest that the band played two further sold out shows in London in early April this year, and are now looking forward to playing at Indietracks!
