While still only 19-years of age, newcomer joshua epithet is creating some of the most interesting sounds to emerge from Manchester.

Inspired by a vast array of artists ranging from Blur and The Streets through to Tyler, The Creator and Childish Gambino, this talent crafts songs that feel alternative and experimental, while still maintaining some pop sensibilities. On new single ‘Casey Got The Call’, joshua explains:

“In a world where most people text, you know you’re more likely to get bad news in a phone call. The call represents the inevitable: the inevitability of failing, and ultimately being past your peak and knowing that there’s nothing you can do about it.”

With early support from the likes of BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music, Clash, Ones To Watch and Dummy, this UK artist looks set to hit the mainstream very soon.
