The Players


(neoclassical, contemporary)

Antlerman is the solo project from pianist Nick Smeaton (From Mountains, Black Martis). Antlerman creates a mix of contemporary classical and electronic music – focusing on a sound that is equal in both elements, rather than rooted in one and borrowing from the other. Taking influence from classical, post-rock, ambient, and electronic music, Antlerman creates a soundscape designed to immerse the listener and remove them from wherever they are.

Sonder City


An alternative rock project fused with elements of pop and EDM, Sonder City speaks to an evolving cross-section of the human psyche; its platform a revolving landscape of alternative sub-genres, the core of its message is threefold: raw, critical self-reflection, the bold championing of fundamental love & idealism, and the extraordinary power of belief in oneself.

With soaring melodies at its core, Sonder City drives striding pianos into shimmering, ambient spaces, lacing them with driving percussion and shiny synth anthems. An odyssey into the human spirit, the project’s aim is to dissect, digest, hail, mock, and ultimately embrace the current state of humanity and its oscillating relationship with the Earth we all share.
