Alt. pop synth outfit Pensacola Mist are playing a socially distanced show at The Globe in Newcastle on Saturday 19th June. The group masterfully combine 80s nostalgia and modern dark pop with a larger than life, fully customised light show to create an intoxicating live experience. The duo have plaudits to boast about, having received national radio play on BBC 6Music and were the featured live act on BBC Introducing in the North East in early 2021. They’ve so far amassed 45,000+ streams from over 90 countries.
Recalling the likes of Suicide, The Cure and the sugary melodicism of the Jesus and Mary Chain, Oliver Payn and Daniel Lee Cox create a technicolour sonic palette using fairly rudimentary means (framed by Oliver’s versatile voice) in a way that makes the
m one of the region’s must-see bands. Their upbeat pop with a synthwave edge creates a truly unique show, blending pre-recorded samples and live instrumentation to create an experience like no other band on the circuit.
