Crywank (UK)

In spite of being self-managed and unsigned Crywank have become one of the UK’s most renowned anti-folk acts. Releasing eight albums in fourteen years and touring relentlessly around the world.

Crywank was formed by songwriter Jay Clayton in 2009 on the same day they first picked up a guitar. Despite not knowing how to play or record properly their early music gained much more attention online than expected and became more of a serious musical endeavour.

Their breakthrough album ‘Tomorrow is Nearly Yesterday and Everyday is Stupid’ was the first album to include the other half of Crywank, Dan Watson. It quickly became a cult album for amateur musicians and fans of sad music, racking up over 100 million streams online.

Crywank announced a break-up tour around the world in 2019, which was cut short by the Covid-19 pandemic. Due to the tour being postponed Crywank never actually broke up (and seemingly never will) and are still around.


Big Pleasure

Big Pleasure is post-punk and indie with a touch of spoken word. Born in the queer centre of Amsterdam in February 2019. Check out their debut album “What about me?” released in summer 2021.



&The started when Joost showed John some of their indie emo riffs. The Irish folk style of John‘s mandolin playing proved to be a surprising, but perfect fit. After a while Paqui was added on vocals and with her wide range adding another layer to the already diverse sonic palette. Partially rough-edged, partially intricate, &The weave songs with toil and care, like a sturdy and comforting hug or a blanket when you’re napping on the couch. FFO: Lankum, Crywank, Vashti Bunyan
