You wait a year and a half to see an emerging alt. rock indie band play live and then three come along at once.

Ouseburn’s Little Buildings is the host for Split the Bill on Saturday 25th September, where Bosola, Holiday In Tokyo and so-new-they’re-squeaky Reservoirs will take to the stage for a night of rock, lo-fi indie pop and jazz-inspired goodness.

Reservoirs, hailing from Consett and straight out of left-field, take their inspiration not only from jazz, but from old musicals and surf, and look set to put their beguiling stamp on the North East’s already flourishing alternative scene. Following the critical success of their debut studio EP How Sick I Became Running From Myself, Heaton three-piece Bosola bring us affable storytelling in tracks like The Social Moth and smile-raisers like This Time Buddy It’s All On You, glinting with 60s charm and burning to be chanted by a live audience. Holiday In Tokyo bring us their signature upbeat mellowness and kitchen sink lyrics, including latest single Make My Day, a hope-tinged longing to be a mid-twenties drifter and untick all of the boxes we’re told to race towards, with warm and thoughtful vocals from Matty Rogers.

It’s been worth the wait.
