Is Gid Sedgwick the UK’s Best Emerging Artist of 2018?

“Completely addictive from first listen, it’s a dollop of outlandish, blurred-barrier pop, akin to early 1975 or even MGMT’s first album”. Clash

Gid Sedgwick has already featured on BBC Introducing and has received rave reviews from both Clash and EQ Music, so we’re assuming there’s no smoke without fire. Like vultures round a carcass, the signs of the indie press frantically gathering around a new act is as good a barometer of the musical climate as you can get. So what exactly is going on?

Gid is a UK-based singer-songwriter who is nearer to a one-man band than a gloomy strummer of a guitar, with a sound that picks up from 1975 and Goldfinger. The future, it seems, is trippy, gritty and catchy and shows UK indie as a cutting-edge force in a way that has been absent for years. Check out the video to his debut single, Ochos, here:
