“A beautiful juxtaposition of golden, heat-shimmering reverb that could soundtrack a Saharan sunrise, and lyrical gloom more in common with this city’s overcast skies.” Clash
“Primed for big things.” Fader
"Smooth, soulful tones. It looks like 2014 will be bright” Evening Standard
Hot on the heels of his brilliantly-received ‘Drowning Butterflies’ EP and a hugely successful first headline UK tour including a sold out date at Electrowerkz in London, Bipolar Sunshine is pleased to announce his next set of headline dates for March / April 2014. The tour will kick off at The Joiners in Southampton and conclude with his biggest hometown headline show to date at Manchester’s Academy 2. He will also support Rudimental and Phoenix over the next couple of months.
Bipolar Sunshine is the solo project of Manchester based Adio Marchant, who since the release of his debut EP ‘Aesthetics’ back in June featuring standout tracks ‘Fire’ and ‘Rivers’, continues to impress and carve out his own singular path as one of the most exciting new talents to look out for in 2014.
His latest EP ‘Drowning Butterflies’ further displays his individuality and determination not to be pigeonholed. The diverse collection of songs uniquely merge indie, R&B and dance with each track telling a profound story backed to his signature uplifting melody that ties everything together. The lead single ‘Love More Worry Less’ received a gushing response online and was added to the Radio 1 In New Music We Trust playlist.
