Future Get Down are Oliver Kass (vocals, various instruments) alongside Ally Dennis (bass, backing vocals, various instruments), Sam Bidgood (drums, percussion) and Brian Pokora (synthesiser, guitar).

Since forming in 2016, the Edinburgh group have built up an enviable reputation, with their two 2018 EPs and 2021 album garnering support from BBC 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne, Nemone, Vic Galloway and Steve Lamacq.

Live they’ve shared stages with the likes of Kraftwerk’s Wolfgang Flür, Jenny Hval and GNOD. They’ve also appeared at festivals such as Blue Dot, Electric Fields, Kelburn Garden Party and Hidden Door and recorded sessions for BBC Introducing and Drowned in Sound.

Quiet, the Art are a duo from Edinburgh bringing together their love of instrumental post-rock and shoegaze in a way that the Heard not Herd blog has described as ‘impossible to pigeonhole.

Mark and Chris have been playing together for five years, and have always loved fuzzy guitar soundscapes and big drum sounds, but their new single ‘Monochrome’ is the first time these things have really come to the fore in their sound, with their earlier songs a bit more rooted in Radiohead and Interpol. Monochrome has been described as a ‘musical ball of fire’ by Rock Era Magazine, so if that sounds good to you, the band hopes you’ll love this new set list of similarly atmospheric material at Summerhall!

The band love any opportunity to connect with a live audience, from their first gig in a random Surrey field to this most iconic of Edinburgh venues, and they can’t wait to share these new tunes with you.
