Following on from the recent announcements of Nicki Minaj and Nero for T in the Park, festival organisers announced that Simian Mobile Disco, Howler and Clouds will join the array of acts heading to Balado between 6th – 8th July. Electronic pioneers SMD, aka James Ford and Jas Shaw, are set to tear it up with their massive party vibe, where they are the masters of the remix and maestros of pulsating, rock-edged electro. Their live shows are famed for their visuals as much as they are for their atmosphere. James is also the production mastermind behind ‘Ceremonials’ - the latest release by fellow T in the Park 2012 act Florence + the Machine.
Much-hyped Minneapolis five-piece Howler has been hailed as one of the best new bands of 2012 by NME, with front-man Jordan Gatesmith also featuring in the magazine’s Cool List. Their gritty blend of fast-paced, gutter rock has earned them countless comparisons to label-mates The Strokes, and they should get the crowd jumping. Local lads Clouds hail from Perth, and bring their progressive house/electro beats to Balado. The hotly tipped duo have caught the attention of legendary techno label Turbo, and their booming basslines and pounding percussion are sure to win them a few new fans when they hit the T in the Park stage.
