Next Hype ► Port Isla

Having posted about this band since the very early days, way before they got signed to Parlophone, we thought it best to formally introduce you to the finest Norfolk has to offer! Started by Will, he enlisted two of his friends and they started performing acoustic gigs in and around Norwich. They grew a big and loyal fanbase and soon they needed a drummer to perform bigger shows. In recent years they've played Latitude Festival and Glastonbury on multiple occasions.

Their blend of pop sensibilities and folk twang has them in a niche all of their own, with people always taalking about them George Erza invited them on tour in 2014 and after that they shared the stage with Rae Morris on a few of her tour dates. Just based on the bands they've supported alone, they have a great attitude towards them, the image to go with it and the songs to back it up. Like I've said, they've signed to Parlophone so do expect a big release next year!  You check them out below performing on the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury 2014 and below that their highly acclaimed début EP, "Steamroller".

For fans of // George Ezra, (early) Mumford & Sons, (acoustic) Bombay Bicycle Club and Rae Morris.
