With Brighton’s Great Escape Festival now only two days away GIGsoup have selected 15 artists we feel you simply shouldn’t miss.

Today’s choice crosses the borders of pop and indie. A stunningly smooth sound that has already led to a major hit (‘Teach Me How To Dance With You’) in their adoptive Holland the band will be showcasing their pop credentials in Brighton this weekend.

The Dutch-English band (lead singer Rupert Blackman relocated to Holland from England) will be playing the festival on the Thursday night. If you’re unable to make the gig then music fans in the North of the UK can check out Causes tonight at The Castle Hotel, Manchester (17th May 2016).
