Lila Tristram is a musician and writer based in London. Over the course of 2020 Lila released her debut EP, Our Friends pt. I, followed by its sister EP Our Friends pt. II. Characterised by melancholic fingerpicking, warm and intimate vocal harmonies, a weaving of bucolic British landscapes, Nordic influences and lunar overtones, the songs which define Lila Tristram’s emergence are a journey to the depths of human longing and belonging.

Since the turn of the decade, Lila has received acclaim from some of Britain’s top industry professionals, including support from Pete Paphides, Stephen Street, Charlie Ashcroft, and several members of the BBC community.

In the summer of 2019 she met The Last Dinosaur’s Jamie Cameron, who was an audience member at one of her gigs. They have since become close musical collaborators, and have performed at residencies both internationally and within the UK. During the spring lockdown of 2020, she joined Cameron in Isolation for Beginners; a group of musicians put together to give purpose to the long days of lockdown. From this emerged a collaboration with the Texan singer-songwriter Austin Basham.

Our Friends pts. I and II were released on vinyl via wiaiwya on 2nd October 2020. The Japanese special edition CD, including the bonus track Caravan, was released on 25th December 2020 via Lirico Records / Inpartmaint Inc.

Ben Yellowitz

Hailing from the industrial city of Birmingham, Benjamin Yellowitz lives beneath his self-built studio in a warehouse in London with several other artists and a worn out cat. Yellowitz is no stranger to the stage – singing with honesty upheld by his captivating stage presence and energetic guitar-percussion. A talented multi-instrumentalist, Yellowitz  somehow fuses folk with warm electronica to create a rich feeling that fills the room.

A skilled producer, Yellowitz masterfully blends authentic acoustic sounds with his signature electronic production style, creating powerful sonic worlds in various projects including Of Ghosts And Other Forms, collaborations with Nuage and fellow queer artists like DYVR, as well as live theatre shows with The New Shadow Cabinet. 

Yellowitz has featured on several BBC Introducing Sessions, and has achieved considerable acclaim in the press with BBC Radio describing his performances as “compelling, emotive and energetic.”

Future Alters

Future Alters emerged out of the late night jams and raves of Spice Box, a music and arts experiment based in London’s Hackney Wick.

Recording and performing as a collective, the project blends psychedelic rock with electronics and modern soul.

More performers announced soon
