Polar Front, the band who were asked to write a backing track for Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison’s advert for her latest fashion range, with website Honeyz, will be performing at Flare Up Festival in Swindon this weekend.

The trio have just released their latest single, Eye to Eye, which they will sing on Saturday at the fun weekend at Shaw.

Lead singer Sophie-Rose Goldsworthy, 23, is from the well known Swindon hairdressing family. She is joined in the band by Perry Sangha playing guitar, sampler, Seaboard and Liam O'Halloran on drums and percussion.

Evolved from the piano keyboard, the Seaboard is a new musical instrument which bridges the gap between acoustic and digital music.

The alternative three piece combine electronic and raw instrumentation to create atmospheric melodies, a hard-hitting rhythm section and soulful vocals.

Polar Front take contrasting genres to develop their own modern sound and Sophie says the band are inspired by the likes of Jack Garratt, The Macabees, Daughter and PVRIS.

The trio joined the festival circuit this summer performing before the 3,000-crowd at Fieldview Festival in Little Somerford alongside Spring King, Submotion Orchestra and Melt Yourself Down.

The family friendly Flare Up Festival runs from 1pm, at The Nine Elms pub, Old Shaw Lane, Swindon. It is a fun day of music in aid of research into a cure for Crohn's disease. Seven bands alongside Polar Front take to the stage including Raze Rebuild, White Lilac, Zero Return, Billy Shinbone, Over to You & Oscillator.

There will also be a variety of stalls, indoor and outdoor bars, street food and a raffle with a chance to win a holiday in Dorset.

Tickets are £8 in advance/ £10 on door. Under 16s free. Tickets available from Holmes Music, The Nine Elms pub or online at seetickets.com. Every penny raised will go to Crohn's MAP Vaccine. - Flicky Harrison
