austerity records presents : 'Seaview' - A new alt-music festival on the South Coast.

Well that was fun, wasn't it?!

We are blown away by the love being shared for Seaview Festival right now, & we'd like to send our sincere thanks to all of you for making #SV23 as special as it was.

From the production team in the back to those enjoying themselves down front, there's far too many to thank individually. But you all know who you are & we truly could not have done this without you.

(Check out Breaking Glass Magazine's SV23 review HERE).

Thank you


Strap yourself in as the London-based disco rock’n’rollers bring their explosive headline show to the first ever Seaview festival. “Seductive, inescapable, overpowering, and you might need to take a shower afterwards” – Line of Best Fit. The bands latest single ‘Love Strong’ is out now on Bella Union Records.

BC Camplight

New Jersey-born singer/songwriter will be bringing his dark lyrical themes & tempestuous live show to the South Coast.

Brian has long since been considered one of independent music’s most singular & inimitable artists. His 2020 release “Shortly After Takeoff” was lauded a Five Star “Masterpiece” by The Guardian. BC Camplight releases what is rumoured to be his final & finest album via Bella Union on May 12th entitled “The Last Rotation of Earth”.


Backed by a full live band, Heartworms’ performances are a masterclass in poise. Jojo describes the theatre brought to her shows - punctuated by her intense stare - as a kick back against preconceived notions of ‘smallness’ and fragility as a female musician. On stage, her projection is the very antithesis: we see an artist who is big, powerful, in total control.Uniformity plays a huge role in all things Heartworms, too.


Local favourites that are fresh off a stint with indie rock legends Suede will be bringing their own brand of ‘guitar tainted machine rock’ to the sunny stage of Seaview. Aircooled are not only making waves across the South Coast but have scored regular plays on BBC Radio 6 & numerous high-profile supports in London. The debut album ‘St.Leopards’ sold out in a matter of weeks. Featuring members of Elastica, The Wedding Present & Piroshka. Get your disco-legs on, SUPERMOTODISCO!

Pale Blue Eyes

Pale Blue Eyes create a beguiling mixture of rhythmic post-punk and sophisticated pop with touchpoints that range from Krautrock to melodic synth pop. From their home base in Totnes, Devon, the trio employed a D.I.Y. approach, collaborating widely within their local creative community and building their own analog studio to record their 2022 debut album, Souvenirs.


With an emphasis on big, alt-rock riffs and inspiration from the likes of Queens Of The Stone Age, The Prodigy and Slowthai, SNAYX take punk, grime, hip-hop, dance & mashes it all together. The band are breaking through at a time where socially-conscious, aggressive guitar music is making waves across the UK and beyond. The likes of Nova Twins, Bob Vylan and Kid Kapichi (all bands SNAYX have supported) are showing what DIY bands can really achieve. This could be one of the last times you witness this band live without them heading the top of the bill.

Winter Gardens

A staple in the austerity roster who have just returned from Rockaway Beach festival alongside OMD, Self Esteem & Billy Nomates. WG take the listener on a genre-hopping journey through an eclectic ray of disparate sounds – cascading jangly guitar, arping synthesisers, elegant flowing keys, serene textures & a pulsing groove glued together with a tempestuous brooding energy. “a winning combination of ambition & beauty” – For the Rabbits

The Office For Personal Development

It’s been a year of unprecedented growth for the Bexhill-on-sea startup, who conducted their very first team building event only earlier this year. In their race to secure market share, since then they have hosted a headline seminar at The Heavenly Social, motivated Truck Festival & been live session guests for John Kennedy on Radio X, having been his ‘Hot One’ and ‘Big One’. Other stand out spikes in productivity include; recruiting support from Craig Charles & Chris Hawkins at BBC Radio 6 Music, continued investment from BBC Introducing, as well as glowing written appraisals across the board.

James Endeacott (DJ Set)

Local legend & Soho Radio discslinger James Endeacott will be bringing his show to to the sunny shores of Bexhill for a very special performance at Seaview.

The musical auteur has worked with some of the finest rock ‘n’ roll bands of the last two decades, most famously A&Ring The Strokes and The Libertines at the height of their powers.
