We took in a number of bands from the fringe of Sheffield’s Tramlines Festival this year. Over at the Frog and Parrot was Sheffield Synthpop duo Promenade Cinema, aka Emma Barson and Dorian Cramm, who deliver cinematic electronic pop music, as evidenced by their debut single A Chemical Haunting, which you can pick up from their bandcamp page – www.promenadecinema.bandcamp.com

Over at Crystal was Leicester five piece Clubs. Making atmospheric indie pop/rock, the band build up epic sounding soundscapes. Surely destined for big things.

Expansive indie rock quartet Delamere, who hail from Stoke-on-Trent/Manchester, also played at the Crystal Bar.

Another band to play the Crystal Bar were Bradford indie rockers The Mexanines. Check out their new single Rocket, taken from their forthcoming EP, out on September 25th.
