If ever there was a festival where you can get a good fix of truly new music to love, it’s at the End of the Road. This three dayer that squeezes the very last drop of summer out has been known as the go-to destination for a laid-back vacay jam-packed with indie tunes, trippy new bands, comedy you didn’t know you liked and lots of green. Surroundings aside, this year their line-up goes above and beyond in shouting about new artists you should be listening to and what’s clear for us is the women that should be on your Spotify playlist but aren’t!
Here’s a few of our favourites…
This three-piece girl group from Liverpool offer alot more than you at first might expect. This is folk meets electronic meets medieval. That’s right, medieval. We reckon you’ll be surprised by how much you’re into their pagan style tunes.
Cate le Bon
This Welsh starlet is a true maverick. She’s pals with Gruff Rhys and is about as mysterious as the man himself. Her music is dark, psyche with more than a nod to The Velvet Underground. We’re tipping her as the next Nico.

Rough, rugged and beautiful. Alice Boman does muffled and messy music to gorgeous effect, with dramatic keyboards and wobbly vocals. We’re a little bit in love.
Marissa Nadler (right)
Who knew “dream folk” was a thing? Well according to the great music critics that be, it is, and Marissa Nadler is nailing it. She’s etheral, introspective and a little haunting. Intrigued or what?
