Alternative indie extravaganza hits Zephyr Lounge in half term

A superb line up of music artists from across the county will be appearing at Leamington’s Zephyr Lounge on Wednesday 18 February, in what will be a big night for music in Coventry & Warwickshire.

Only Shadows Feb 2015Nuneaton’s Only Shadows, Leamington’s The Rushmore and Stratford’s Chasing Deer will join forces to provide an energy-packed night of alternative indie, with support from female Warwick-based DJ Keztrel.

Described as “one of the brightest hopes for UK guitar music” by Amazing Radio, headliners Only Shadows will bring their own brand alternative powerpop to Leamington, giving local fans a chance to see them in action before they go on a UK-wide tour in April supporting Young Kato, taking in dates from Nottingham to Southampton.

Citing influences including Editors, Arcade Fire and Placebo, the band have recently released new single ‘Our Sands’, which they’ll be performing live at the Zephyr Lounge.

The Rushmore Feb 2015Support comes from Leamington’s very own The Rushmore, whose energetic blend of indie rock is guaranteed to get the crowd moving. Signed to 4Real Records, the band have been described as “sounding bigger that Godzilla” by The Assembly in Leamington and they will soon be releasing their second album.

Chasing Deer Feb 2015Opening the night are Stratford’s Chasing Deer, kicking off the evening with some amazing acoustic pop rock. The young unsigned band performs a mix of cover songs and original music, and will be treating the Zephyr crowd to a performance of their recently released debut single, ‘Step into the Light’.

DJ Keztrel Feb 2015All three bands will be complimented by two DJ sets from female Warwick-based DJ Keztrel, who’ll be playing a mix of electro and alternative tunes to get people in the mood and round off the evening.

Tickets are £5. They are available directly from the artists, online at, or on the door. Admission policy is 14+.
