They are the 2019 winners of the Isle of Wight Festival 'New Blood' competition, earning them a performance on the 8000 capacity Big Top stage. They have most recently had a headline show at the Oslo, Hackney professionally captured in 4K for future release, funded by a second successful Kickstarter campaign.
Above all else, they believe in making Pop music that feels to it’s core. For them music is a way of releasing their hopes, struggles and experiences out into the world. All the music they create has been devotedly crafted quite literally ‘in-house’ in their home where they all live together, writing, producing and recording all the music themselves.
Simply, they are three best friends, making music everyday.
What do they sound like?
Think Florence and The Machine meets Clean Bandit, meets Annie Lennox, meets Fleetwood Mac. Intricate dual-gender vocal harmonies with lush, emotive textures supported by infectious rhythm. Rip roaring, party-starting trumpet solos, throbbing and pulsing basses that get you in the gut, haunting violin atmospheres that fill the air, and tearing emotional vocal belts in resounding unity.
Their live show plays an exciting key role in what they have to offer, from atmospheric orchestral pop intros to trumpet solos, sweeping violins, live drum looping and audience participation they strive to put on a fully immersive show even more ambitious than the music itself. Amplified by Nikita’s high energy, captivating stage presence it is an experience tailored for the big stage.
STITCH were chosen to play London Pride in Trafalgar Square just months after forming in 2016, and were swiftly scouted by MWR (Matt Waterhouse Represents) as official remixers. Shortly after, the band raised £2700 via a successful Kickstarter campaign, in order to bring their debut EP, ‘Welcome to the Dream’ to life. Since then, the group have amassed a follower base of over 20,000 on international live-streaming app Blued, been long-listed for the 2018 Unsigned Music Awards, played multiple times on BBC Introducing The South and offered publishing deals by partners of Notting Hill music. Most recently, they have joined forces with sync company A&G sync. STITCH were also discovered at a show by Shodement LTD, resulting in performances at the likes of the prestigious Global 12 festival, at Cargo London.
They are completely self-managed and funded, and have financed everything from the music to the photos to the artwork. With the funding they gained from their loyal fans, they released their debut music video for their lead single Champagne premiering exclusively on the hugely renowned ‘Clash’ Magazine. To celebrate they played a sold out show at The Hoxton Underbelly in London in March 2018.
