We’re not from London but Bare Traps are! And we love em for it! They make their Nottingham debut at The Toll Bar while on their spring 2018 tour.

“In a desperate attempt to avoid ‘real work’ – and in one individual’s case, capture – the four members of Bare Traps fled to the bright lights of the big city. In our great nation’s capital, meeting at the dankest end of the Bakerloo Line, they vowed to transcend their monotonous lives by selling their souls in exchange for sonic sorcery. These sorcerers combined sun-drenched mathy guitar hooks, African rhythms, stinky grooves, a touch of the tropics, and them beats-to-make-you-move-ya-feet, resulting in an intoxicating alt-pop cocktail. At the end of 2016 they made the joint decision to become rock stars and have been living that delusion ever since.

Soon after Bare Traps formed, the almighty Beeb invited the young men to get their ditties out for the public to admire. With multiple BBC Introducing performances, and a live radio session under their collective belt, Bare Traps enjoy regular championing by numerous regional DJs, as well as Tom Robinson on BBC Radio 6 Music. 2017 saw the lads ascend (in their own minds) to the heights of festival rock gods, with performances at The Great Escape and Fieldview. True to form, once they’d played an electric set at Sundown Festival, their rock star delusion saw them blag their way side of stage during Craig David’s performance, and after removing their trousers and underwear, were promptly escorted away by security. Whether you hear their name on the radio or on the news, they’ll be a household name soon enough..

Arshia Jain is an indie singer-songwriter. At the age of 12 Arshia taught herself the guitar so that she could stop humming the songs she was making up in her head. She found she didn’t like doing covers because she couldn’t remember the chords, so found that writing her own stuff was the way to go. Every song is written based on a personal experience and we’re lucky enough to have her open up this show!
