There is always that moment when you listen to a band and you can't think for the life of you what their name is.... Ohhh, it's um... Ahh, I know this?!?!

Well for these lucky bands, hopefully after this article and after you take a listen, you'll know their names due to the pure talent that they dish out.

One local band straight from the city of Southampton have recently been publicised through BBC introducing South, where they played a live set and had an interview.

Brother Goose, a foursome consisting of Calum Lintott as lead vocals, synth and Guitar, Joe Ramsey on Drums and percussion, Joss Harvey on Bass and Chris Barlow also on Guitar, formed in the early part of 2012. They have really got themselves together and managed to spread the word around the local area of there music and talent.

With their influences coming from Vampire Weekend, The Drums, Foo Fighters, Mystery Jets, The Smiths, Foster The People and The Black Keys you can easily see where they get their Indie/Rock genre from.

Their debut EP T H R O W I N G S H A P E S has been highly reviewed and forms the basis of the bands future intentions with their sound.

BBC Introducing: The South... Live session

Another local talent hitting the scene of the city of Southampton is Cloudi Lewis, an indie folk singer who has recently been recording vocals in the famous Abby Road Studios. For such young, raw, talent, she is sure moving up in the industry. Previously supporting acts like 'The Producers' and 'Rachel Sermann'.

With her debut EP 'Casual Conversations With a Woodpiegon' being sold on ITunes, this girl has got the potential to go far. Also having a new EP being released soon, she is well on the way to making her mark and gaining a lot of followers for her musical talent.

Southampton's own Luke Donavan aka Spectral Park has also recently been making an impact in Southampton. Set to play this year's Ejector Seat festival, Spectral Park will bring their Experimental Lo-Fi Pop sound to the crowd. Signed to 'Mexican Summer' record label, he debut's his LP 'Spectral Park' from the sounds of trash. Literally cutting up old records and blending them to form Spectral Park's distinct sound.

Recently playing shows in Europe, Luke's sound is unique to anything else I have heard, and the unusual yet contrasting music plays a distinct sound to the musicians LP.

If this is the sort of music you're into, or you can see yourself growing to love then you can experience all three acts at this years Ejector Seat Festival held in Southampton's Palmerston Park from 12noon to 10pm.

The volunteered community based festival is set to be a huge success with headliner act East India youth alongside Cloudi Lewis, Brother Goose and Spectral Park but to name a few. There is also a Spoken Word tent filled with Poetry enthusiasts and the Melting Pot tent bringing the acoustic sound of music to your ears. The event is free so you have no excuse, and with these three amazing acts gracing the stage your sure not to miss it.

I'll be running around on the day like a headless Chicken so put the efforts of myself and all the volunteers and Organisers to good use, by enjoying this event and the weather that should be coming along for the ride too.
