Forming through a collective desire to hang out in a more creative way, the members of Potpourri decided to learn how to play instruments with the sole aim of forming a band. The four-piece DIY collective released their first single Eisenhower on Christmas Day – it’s a catchy, slightly spooky slice of art-pop that explores the hardships of being a painter’s muse and being unhappy with your portrayal. They’ve recently played shows with Mr Ben and The Bens dressed as cool grannies.
For fans of: Pulp, Sheffield synth pop, Kate Bush.
