Next Era is our new home for the best upcoming music from the UK & beyond. We've hand picked some of the UK's freshest talent to be showcased through monthly online performances here at House of Vans London.
This June, we're bringing you the summer-y, alt-bop vibes of South London five-piece Moa Moa plus the grunge-tinged and arousing sounds of punkheads Out Of Love.
For the time being, we'll be blasting these gigs out through our IGTV, but rest assured, we’re working hard to bring these back IRL as soon as possible. We can’t wait until we open our doors for you to come and dance!
Tune in to Out of Love’s set from 5:00 pm on Friday, June 25th and Moa Moa on Monday, June 28th.
You can also get to know these guys plus many more artists that are on the rise via our Vans’ Next Era playlist on Spotify.
About Out Of Love:
Formed in 2019, London punks Out Of Love started making waves when they dropped their music video for 'S.L.U.M.P' back in February of 2020, with the track getting picked up by the likes of BBC Radio 1 and Kerrang! Radio. Soon enough, the band was on everyone's lips, scoring coverage from Rock Sound, Kerrang! and more, as they released their debut EP 'I am Not Me'. Now, they're back with their anticipated second record, Funny Feeling EP released last April via Gallow's label Venn Records.
Now you can catch their hooky, punk-rock, indie-leaning sounds on Next ERA, and we promise you won't be disappointed.
About Moa Moa:
Taking influence from the likes of Unknown Mortal Orchestra, James Black and Photay, Moa Moa came together in the summer of 2019 with the idea of pairing unconventional songwriting with pop-leaning sensibilities. Their two singles, Yello Jacket and Spinning were released in 2020 to critical acclaim with widespread support from BBC Radio 6 and Radio 1 and UK tastemaker publications DIY, Clash and The Most Radicalist.
With a string of festival dates in the calendar and an EP in the pipeline anticipated by new single 'Coltan Candy', the band have started building a reputation as one of the most exciting new live acts in London Town.
