Line Up

French Exit are a 4 piece alt-rock band based in South East London, which formed in January of 2023 and made a fast start, playing shows across London, including headline slots at the Half Moon and The Bread & Roses.

The band's debut release, Still, was written and recorded late in 2023 with the session engineered by Christopher Smith and the mix coming from Cadien Lake James of Chicago's Twin Peaks. The single has received welcome acclaim from BBC Introducing and Right Chord Music.

In 2024, the band is lined up for more live dates across London, with plenty more material on the way.

"It’s really really powerful. I like that very much indeed. It’s catchy but also it’s got that pathos about it as well. Great track. Really good track." — BBC Introducing on 'Still'

"Those who enjoy South London's bustling music scene will discover a parallel with post-punk favourites such as Shame in Still's composition. The track exudes a raw, energetic vibe that evokes memories of the Brixton heroes. Yet despite being influenced by its predecessors, French Exit still stand tall amongst their alternative peers." — Right Chord Music on 'Still'

Welcome to Bowen – a brand new indie rock act fronted by London singer-songwriter Neve Bowen.

After a run of singles in 2023 and the release of her first debut Ep ‘Lifeline’ the 19 year old singer songwriter from London, now has a full band. Taking her own distinct sad girl indie sound and turbo-charging it into a three piece power trio with the addition of Thea Mercado on guitar & Scott Henry on drums. The three came together after a chance meeting at Reading Festival and a shared love of Wolf Alice and David Bowie.
