Future Islands

It took a dad-dancing viral video to propel this agreeably odd Baltimore indie trio into the limelight, though they’d been crafting their melodic, fluid punk-funk and arty post-pop (complete with synths, impassioned vocals and the odd birdsong sample) for years before that ‘SNL’ appearance. Catch them live at La Cigale, where charismatic

Kate Tempest

South London poet, rapper and playwright Kate Tempest plays from her Mercury Prize-nominated new album 'Everybody Down'. Her punchy flow is halfway between rap and straight-up spoken word, as she spins out absorbing tales of urban malaise, hope and 'beigeness' accompanied by a live band (overseen by producer Dan Carey) and a dance troupe.

The Prodigy

The pointy-haired rave-punks drop in to the Zénith with their unique blend of tractor-crash beats, pounding synths and deliberately abrasive guitar abuse. This follows the release of their 'violent' (their words) new album 'The Day Is My Enemy', but you can bet on mass bounce-alongs to 'Out of Space' and 'Breathe' too. Prepare for total mayhem.
