With a series of new releases on the way and a UK tour in the works, 2019 is looking promising for Cora Pearl, who have garnered a reputation for exhilarating live shows, and excellent crowd participation. In the last year they’ve supported indie legends We Are Scientists at the O2 Academy, up and coming indie-rockers The Pale White, Manchester’s Twisted Wheel and rising garage rockers YAK. Additionally, they have a plethora of sold-out, Sheffield headline shows under their belt and have just come off the back of a highly successful tour.
“With influences that span the likes of Queens of the Stone Age and Car Seat Headrest, it’s unsurprising that Cora Pearl’s take contemporary indie is somewhat idiosyncratic; something that’s brought to the fore brilliantly on second single, Graffiti. … Your average Sheffield indie band, they are not.” – Louderthanwar (Read full review here >> https://bit.ly/2KDPQkJ) “Their live reputation is as good as it gets. Energetic, raw and genuinely good song-writers, this could be one of those ‘I was there’ moments for a band set for stardom.” – Exposed Magazine “It can be all too easy for up and coming bands to get lost in the shuffle or be lazily compared to other bands that came before them. However, Cora Pearl do not fall victim to either of these trends, thriving on their ability to stand out from the crowd and create a distinctive identity within a crowded space.” – RGM (read the full review here >> https://bit.ly/2EA19Xh) “Many people are just happy to sit and not really do anything with their life, but ‘Hope Machine’ is just trying to challenge that and trying to make people see that there’s actually a lot more to living. There’s a difference between living and surviving; there’s a lot more to life than just work!” – Cora Pearl (read the full interview here >> https://bit.ly/2Jxi9kT) “It’s safe to say that Sheffield guitar based four piece Cora Pearl have made a splash on the local scene.” The Tab Sheffield (Read full interview here >> https://bit.ly/2HVqX1F)
A 2-piece bringing big fuzzy riffs and blues inspired alt. Influenced by the likes of Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees and Black Sabbath, Teeff are quickly gaining a reputation as a live show with plenty of bite (get it?). Expect gritty guitars, plenty of hair and pretty grins. The band released their latest single ‘Wasting Time’ in January and have just come off the back of performances at Y Not Festival and Reading & Leeds Festival.
“Absolutely incredible” – Christian Carlisle (BBC introducing)
“Blew me away, top band” – Reyt Good Magazine
“A guitar and drums two-piece that is infectious to watch and addictive to listen to.” – Yorkshire Magazine
