The Receivers - Saturday
The Receivers formed in late 2016 with Nick Aldous on Lead Vocals & Guitar, Alex Higginson on Lead Guitar & Backing Vocals, Harry Stables on Bass Guitar and Louis Bristowe on Drums.
The band have been described as “Equal parts 60's Troubadour, 90's Shoegaze, and 00's Indie" with their wide range of influences, from acts such as Weezer, The Cribs, The Cure, The Jesus and Mary Chain and Blossoms.
On 15th September 2017 they released their debut EP Crescent Moon Heart To critical acclaim. With a UK Tour to promote the EP, including their biggest headline show to date at Fibbers in York.
In early 2018, the band released the new single, 21. Shortly after the release, The Receivers made the final of Northern Exposure’s INMusic Festival competition, beating over 400 UK acts to the final six, alongside False Heads & Himalayas. Soon after, the band ventured south for the first time to play shows in London & Birmingham as part of their March 2018 UK Tour.
After a short break the band started their festival season with brand new single, A Thousand Times. Shortly after the release, the boys played to 1,500 at Leeds O2 Academy - their biggest show yet.
After Steve Lamacq premiered new track "Leave The Right Marks" on BBC Radio 6 Music, The Receivers announced their brand new EP, "There's More To The World" due for release on Friday 3rd May 2019. On 22nd March 2019, They released lead single, "Saturday".

Ihrsan - Scoobydoo
Ihrsan - not a covers band. Not a retro band. Not a foos/chillis/bouncy punk/80s/oasiblur copy band. We write our own thing. The beats are rock-pop. The lyrics are meaningful. Thoughtful.
