Fortuna POP! are excited to announce the indiepop show of the summer, featuring three of the best indie bands around.

Hailing from Pity Me near Durham, Martha play energetic, impassioned power pop with intricate vocal interplay and lush four-part harmonies, informed by 90s indie rock and Scandinavian anarcho punk. The band is comprised of J. Cairns (guitar), Daniel Ellis (guitar), Naomi Griffin (bass), and Nathan Stephens Griffin (drums). All four members sing and write the songs. Daniel and Nathan also play in Onsind, while Naomi also plays in No Ditching. Their debut album “Courting Strong”, produced by MJ from Hookworms, came out in 2014 and was included in NPR's top 50 albums of that year, winning them the epithet “One of Britain's best rock bands”. Following a Glastonbury appearance last year at the personal invitation of Billy Bragg, the band will be playing UK dates in July and August before taking to the stage at End Of The Road in September. Their second album "Blisters In The Pit Of My Heart" is released via Fortuna POP! on July 8th.

“Martha are one of the most thrilling and likeable bands to emerge from the North East in god knows how many years... Courting Strong is just fantastic”. (Drowned In Sound)

Trust Fund is Ellis Jones and friends who make the kind of melancholy power pop you wish you had heard during your awkward years. Rough strumming, yearning, ranged vocals and with a hint of Elliott Smith delicacy, it’s the perfect combination to fall in love with. Their new album “We have always lived in The Harolds” is out now.

“An indie pop masterclass where raw beauty is coupled with flashes of pure power.” (Louder Than War)

Releasing their 'Demo' on Tuff Enuff last year and playing their first ever show for DIYPOP Fest earlier this year — this four piece from Cardiff are one of the most exciting new things we've heard in ages, with their perfectly paced post-punk and pop sensitivities delivered in songs that give enough room to appreciate just how much beauty and sentiment is being poured into them. Gliding indie pop, austerely beautiful and melodically gold.
