Showtime

19.20 - 20.00 hrs

The seven-piece Pet Shimmers is the new project of Oliver Wilde, an established musician from Bristol. Wilde likens the music itself to a “nuclear family-fronted, sit-down, stream-friendly, ‘play’-shifting, 8-bit apocalypse party band for fans of Sparkle Force and Gender Neutral Milk Hotel.” Perhaps a bit cumbersome, but nevertheless striking description: we do indeed hear the deep-rooted melancholy of Mark Linkous simmering under the colorful arrangements, reminiscent of Super Furry Animals, The Flaming Lips and Tame Impala.
