Manchester six-piece The Travelling Band take influence from folk, county, psyche and rock before filtering it through their own sunshine-pop sensibility. Here is a band who excel at sounding happy, sad, frustrated, and vulnerable, often at the same time, and their best songs, whether they’re fast or slow, feel like they’re bursting with energy and wisdom. The Travelling Band’s live show is a feel-good tour-de-force. The band have released their second album Sundial this year.

“Deserving winners of Glastonbury’s new talent contest and arguably one of Manchester’s best new bands.”Christina McDermott, BBC Manchester
