Newly Minted, London’s festival of new music, is a season of free entry shows dedicated to unearthing the very best of the UK’s independent emerging music scene.

Funded by The Arts Council, from July – September, we’ll be taking over some of London’s best independent music venues and putting a spotlight on a selection of the UK’s most exciting new artists.

Discover what we have on below and come through for “I saw them first” bragging rights!

Run Logan Run + Yaatri | 12/09/23 | The Ivy House

At the forefront of Bristol’s contribution to the pulsing new UK jazz scene come Run Logan Run, bringing scorching energy music for the 21st century. Guided by the searching and fearless tone of founding member Andrew Neil Hayes’ tenor saxophone, the music that emerges is fiercely committed, questing and risk-taking. Initially conceived as a duo with drummer Dan Johnson in 2016, the project continues to evolve a line up that has featured many of the city’s most innovative and experimental musicians, including drummer Matt Brown, producer Riaan Vosloo, and vocalist Annie Gardiner

Influenced by the momentum of the rhythms of India, immersive timbres of electronic music, and energy of rock’n’roll, Leeds-based quintet Yaatri’s blend of complex composition and ethereal soundscapes captivates the heart as well as the mind.

Helen Ganya + Shredd | 16/09/23 | Shacklewell Arms

By experimenting with existentially-driven lyrics and off-kilter sounds, Scottish-Thai artist Helen Ganya creates layered musical landscapes that you will want to revisit again and again.

Shredd are a psychedelic garage rock band from Glasgow, Scotland. Their unique sound and wild live show have gained them the reputation as one of the tightest – and loudest – bands in the U.K.

Having supported the likes of Fontaines D.C., Psychedelic Porn Crumpets and VLURE, the band has quickly built a cult fanbase. Their debut album, ‘The Place Unknown’, was released in December 2022 and has been described as ‘an assured beast’ by The Scotsman, ‘a cacophonic sonic adventure’ by Tenement TV and tipped by The Skinny to be ‘the soundtrack to the moshpits of Glasgow’s DIY venues’. 

Yama Warashi | 26/09/23 | Ivy House

Led by Japanese artist Yoshino Shigihara, Yama Warashi‘s eclectic, joyful sound draws inspiration from Japanese folk dance, free jazz, tribal African music, and psychedelia to create something uniquely their own.
