The now Australian-Anglo-Portuguese quartet are set to release their sophomore EP ?Stop Existing, Start Living?, due out July 2013. The Dark Light?s will embark on their third UK tour this summer, to celebrate its release, finishing with their London EP Launch at Power Lunches.

Transformativa + Soft as Snow
Transformativa is a Brazilian born, London based electronic producer who, since 2008, has been working at the cutting edge of new electronic sounds and has had raving reviews on the specialized press. His work is often compared to the likes of Amon Tobin and Aphex Twin and draws influence from Jazz, Sonic Youth and Brazilian music.
This is the release show of his first single: "The Aleph":
"(…)a truly mesmerising wild and chaotic symphony of sound that reaches some dark depths of barely-in-control intensity"
Soft as Snow is a new Scandinavian band based in London. In their dark, electronic noise pop they draw inspiration from The Knife and Gang Gang Dance, Detroit Techno, the murky synths of Boards of Canada and the noisiness of Animal Collective.
Soft as Snow consists of Goldsmiths graduate artist Oda Egjar Starheim on vocals and guitar and postpunk drummer Øystein Monsen on drum machines, acoustic drums, synths and samples.
Tigercats + Supports
Tigercats make music of open-hearted joy and sparkly-eyed adventure. If you like songs that start with intimate confession and end in furious vegetarianism, or studies of Konnie Huq's easily-forgotten role in the Beijing Olympics, you'll love Tigercats!
JUST HANDSHAKES (http://justhandshakeswerebritish.tumblr.com/)
Just Handshakes are something of a rarity these days, a British indiepop band that are worth shouting about. A four piece currently based in Leeds, they sit somewhere between the oscillating pop of Jenny Lewis in her Rilo Kiley days and a doo-wop Metric.
THE SPOOK SCHOOL (http://www.thespookschool.com/)
The Spook School are four noisey people from Edinburgh, Scotland. They write honest indiepop songs, full of energy with raucous guitars and drums.
