Venue: Caught by the River, on Thursday.

Halifax sisters Esme and Sid Hand-Halford – assisted by pal Henry Wade – have set the indie airwaves booming with a sun-kissed lo-fi sound, one that sometimes suggests California before their home ’hood of Calderdale. Expect echoes of the Pixies and the Breeders, and a touch of The Beach Boys and Tracey Thorn’s Marine Girls from a trio still in their mid teens.
