Psychedelia has nestled its way into the heart of the North East music scene, Lost in the Woods have wasted little to no time in displaying a collection of the most mesmeric, upcoming local musicians at the humble Music Lounge in Stockton-on-Tees.

Headliners Silver Trees, a bohemian, electro-psych five piece from Hartlepool, are known for their spiritual, unworldly sets that exude a laid-back, Velvet Underground feel. Effulgent lead singer Belle Dove’s dainty vocals clash against folksy, rhythmic vibrations provide a satisfying conclusion to a beautiful line-up, and their unique genre-sandwich is a brave leap, but lands safely in the palms of an already impressive Teesside following.

Support is provided by Wild Birds of Britain, a heavier addition to the bill, comprising of drawled, hazy vocals amidst Eastern-derived drum beats and classic whirls of sultry electric guitar. Their combination of music that is relaxing whilst infectiously broody dubs them as a captivating presence live. Entwining gentle, effervescent lyrics and ambient slurs of guitar, shoegaze wonders Figmennt open the show, guaranteed to induce atmospheric, dream-pop sounds with sweet releases such as She.

Expect an evening of heavenly noise, fascinating talent and perhaps the odd overdose of paisley print and tambourines.

Silver Trees, The Wild Birds of Britain and Figmennt play at Music Lounge, Stockton on Saturday 1st August.
