Local bunch Saltwater Sun fight through Reading's drizzle with their feel-good indie pop

They played the Introducing stage.

Local Reading six-piece Saltwater Sun battle through the drizzle on the Introducing Stage with some feel-good indie pop. Jennifer Stearnes is keeping dry in a boiler suit that matches her bright blue hair, while the band get extra points for having a spare percussionist tapping away on bongos and shakers. 

Describing their sound as ‘sun-drenched’, this isn’t exactly the ideal climate to judge them in, but there’s promise in their garage rock guitars and bouncing bass lines. Get them in a tent or control the weather next year, Reading.
