Four Leeds artists will be hsaring a stage at a fundraising gig for Leeds Hyde Park Women+ FC.

Fig By Four, the new project from Sarah Statham of the Leeds bands Esper Scout, Crake and Living Body, will be joined by Gemma Gates, Trauma Dump and Alive at the show which takes place on Friday April 12 at Hyde Park Book Club in Leeds.

Fig by Four is multi-instrumentalist Sarah Statham, who weaves ethereal thoughts on connection, memory and loss into a refreshing melting pot of off-kilter alternative/indie musical storytelling. Hinged on pensive lyrics, dynamic rhythms, characterful guitars and ear-catching basslines, her multifaceted collection of songs swings between the viscerally immediate and the sweepingly cinematic. With a captivating full band live show, Fig by Four is taking her imagination through 2023 with the release of her debut record.

Gemma Gates is a singer songwriter rich with a captivating and authentic sense of self and purpose, with enchanting musical talent and effortless charm. She will be bringing her band to share her songs, which are impossible not to fall in love with. Gemma’s range is said to provide “the perfect soundtrack to a day spent in the mountains or a replenishing walk home from work”.Trauma Dump are a queer indie pop band from Leeds creating sad gay bangers with a rubbish tip load of self-deprecating humour. They are influenced largely by the soundscapes of dream pop, shoegaze and indie rock and from a wide mix of artists like Wolf Alice, Alvvays, Courtney Barnett and Phoebe Bridgers. Trauma Dump will have you laughing and crying at the same time while you relate to their experience of being Gen Z and queer.

Alvie, meanwhile, is a layered, thoughtful, impressionably melodic alt/indie artist.
