5pm – 1am
An earlier start for our final night as we wave an emotional goodbye to Leith Theatre, our home for the last three years.
This is the night with the most bands – 6 in total – starting early with the incredible new talent Zoe Graham at 5:30. Yes that’s early, so come down for a Sunday late afternoon, get some food at the street food stalls, grab a drink and settle in for a full evening of beautiful, atmospheric music!
Cigs bring the atmosphere. They aim for a fully immersive experience, crafting a big soundscape to bring their heart-achingly beautiful love songs to life. They epic, nostalgic, gentle but powerful: prepare to be transported. Imagine Beach House and Slowdive, a little bit of Spiritualized and Sigur Ros, (singing in English!) Lush. (the sound, not the band).
This is Indie rock with a touch of the gothic. There’s hints of Django Django in the Man of Moon sound – but there’s a bigger, darker sound – a sort of restrained early Soundgarden jamming with Joy Division, if that’s even possible to imagine…
ST.MARTiiNS are from Dundee, so they are awesome. The duo bring the most electronica-flavoured music to the mix, but their precisely crafted songs are saturated in deeply felt emotion so they will contribute to the feeling building through the night.
Miss Grit might just about be the coolest act at this year’s Hidden Door. Popping over from Brooklyn to play some dates in the UK she has only released a handful of singles at the moment, but listen to them and you know she is going to be huge! The next St Vincent? Mitski? PJ Harvey? Don’t miss Miss Grit!
This is atmospheric Indie music with tension and darkness running through it. The band have a great stage presence and a big sound. Imagine Depeche Mode, The XX and The Twilight Sad, but better looking.
Crisp and perfectly poised songwriting is what this new Scottish talent offers – this might be the best acoustic guitar and voice you can hear at this year’s Hidden Door. But the electric guitar and loop pedals are an important part of her repertoire too.
Atmospheric, mellow and deeply emotional.
You might fall in love. Or cry. Or just feel blissed out.
Beautiful music for a beautiful venue.
And a fitting finale to this year’s Hidden Door.
