The line-up of singers also includes Casper Clausen (Efterklang/Liima), Jimi Goodwin (Doves), Rachel Goswell (Slowdive, Minor Victories) Blaine Harrison (Mystery Jets), Joe McAlinden (Linden, ex. Superstar/BMX Bandits), Aimee Nash (The Black Ryder), Conrad Standish (The Devastations), Jonnine Standish (HTRK), Elena Tonra (Daughter) and Rachel Zeffira (Cat’s Eyes).
