Sounds From The Other City

February 9, 2014

First acts revealed: Rosie Lowe & Avec Sans for Tru Luv

Having worked with the Postcards from Manchester team in the past, Tru Luv is a promoter with great Sounds from the Other City pedigree. This will be their first year working alone, and have commandeered The Angel Centre in order to bring the best in hot new talent to SFTOC – something we’ve always championed. So, we’re proud to announce the first names for SFTOC 14 – playing for Tru Luv will be…


Having already worked with the likes of Kwes and The Invisible’s Dave Okwumu, it is clear that Rosie Lowe is something incredibly special. Crafting sultry songs full of longing, lust and regret, Lowe’s voice is something special, sitting head and shoulders above many supposed peers. Possessing an almost indescribable magic, Lowe is destined for great things over the coming 12 months, and we are delighted to be able to welcome her to Salford for what is guaranteed to be a magical performance.


All the best new bands have something a little mystical about them – a quality that you can’t quite put your finger on, or a sound that you just can’t place. Avec Sans are filled with those kind of beautiful little paradoxes, with a sound that concentrates on majestic pop hooks, but with a dedication to (sometimes quite sinister) synth and intriguing beats. They’ve been one of the most blogged about bands over the past year or so, and every venture into the live arena has been greeted with much excitement – this will be no different.
