Bipolar Sunshine is the Manchester raised alternative pop sound of Adio Marchant. With an eclectic new-age ambient soundscape and melancholy soulful lyrics, he conjures up the romance of escapism, drawing inspiration from life’s wonders and imperfections.
He has built an avid following through the release of two EPs and a collection of singles, most recently with ‘Deckchairs on the Moon’ and ‘Future (Part 1)’ ft. Goldlink, and with live shows, including support dates with the likes of A$AP Mob, London Grammar, Rudimental and Bastille, along with his own packed out headline shows and festival appearances.
New single ‘Daydreamer’ incorporates everything Bipolar Sunshine has become so known and so loved for. An atypical pop track, which blends both the despondent and the upbeat with intelligent and unique lyrics and a vast, all-encompassing chorus. The song is a collaboration with SBTRKT and was produced by Fraser T Smith (Adele, Lily Allen, Sam Smith)

Over the course of 2014, fast-emerging singer, songwriter and producer Holly ‘Låpsley’ Fletcher has become one of the most hotly tipped new UK artists around. Through beautifully crafted songs such as “Station” and “Painter (Valentine)”, the 18-year old, Southport, England-raised artist has created a unique sonic identity, mixing sparse, minimal electronic production with gorgeous, emotive songwriting.
Now, following a deal with XL Recordings, Låpsley will release her debut Understudy EP on January 5th, 2015. Lead track “Falling Short” – which has received close to a quarter of a million Souncloud plays in less than a month – is available to purchase from October 24th as part of the Anne Mac Presents 2014 album. It will then get a full, standalone release on the Understudy EP, which will be available on 12” vinyl and download and will feature three further brand new tracks.
The full Understudy EP track list is:
