Event Type

Get ready for a night of original live music with Burnley’s own Design Rewind and Sheffield’s Lina and The Lions! Both bands can be best described as a modern throwback drawing upon the sounds and sights of the eighties.

When it comes to Design Rewind, think Hall & Oates meets Steely Dan as they draw inspiration from the great songwriters of the 1970’s & 80’s in pop and rock. Billy’s powerful vocal is instantly recognisable, reminiscent of Phil Collins and Genesis which is complemented by the funk and soul stylings of Towers on the bass to lock in with Billy’s drumming. 2023 saw the release of the band’s second album “Room 96” and with Album Number 3 currently being written, the band continues to promote their music providing audiences with bigger and better shows.

Lina and The Lions’ energetic sound rides the crux of the 80s New Wave while bringing in a brand-new tide of ingenuity to the tune of glassy synths and synthesised bass – all serving as the perfect backdrop for Lina’s unmistakable soaring vocal. Influenced by giants like Blondie, Cyndi Lauper and The Police, Lina and the Lions deliver a cross-generational blend of infectious pop that interweaves the styles of past generations into a revitalised neo-pop explosion. Earning them comparisons to modern synth-pop acts like Chvrches, Pale Waves and The 1975.
