Indie darlings MARKETPLACE arrived in early 2020 with their debut single, “HARD 2 LOVE”, a carefully crafted indie pop masterpiece. The 5 piece from Hartlepool initially uploaded a demo track to Spotify resulting in widespread acclaim, despite members of the band only picking up their instruments for the first time for the demo.
Drawing influences from a wide range of artists including Grouplove, Mystery Jets, Hippo Campus, and Talking Heads, the band made up of Joel O’beirne (vocals/bass), Evie Rhodes (vocals/guitar), Jack Purcell (guitar), Matthew Short (synth) and Ross Dixon (drums) bring their own individual tastes to create the signature MARKETPLACE sound.
Their debut received praise from tastemakers across the board, with the band being tipped by BBC Tees Introducing as Ones to Watch for 2021 and press coverage from the likes of Dork Magazine, NARC magazine and many more.
In their short time as a band, they have supported the likes of SPINN, Far Caspian and Orchards, as well as selling out their debut Teesside headliner at Base Camp in Middlesbrough.
