Sound City’s second night of headliners saw Nina Nesbitt and Darwin Deez take the festival’s energy up to fever pitch.

Delivering a set of bouncy acoustic numbers, Nina proved she is no one-hit wonder.

The London-based duo the Ruen Brothers from Scunthorpe took to the stage in turtle necks, leather jackets and white shoes, with a distinct 1960s visual and audio theme.

Their single Walk Like a Man is set for summer release.

Staffordshire-born LIPA graduate Dan Croll played everyone’s favourite coffee shop Bold Street Coffee.

The singer-songwriter won the national Songwriter of the Year award at the city’s fame academy and was one of eight students picked to have a one-to-one mentoring session with LIPA founder and pop legend Sir Paul McCartney.

Dan’s new single Compliment Your Soul is out now.

80s-inspired indie-pop darling Darwin Deez Headlined pop-up venue The Garage on the second night of Sound City.

The band emerged in 2010 and opened with bursts of 80s pop and quirky dance moves which were scattered throughout the set.

The New York quartet are captivating to watch with front-man Darwin Smith gurning his way through the set and delighting the crowd with his geeky dances between songs.

Crowd favourite Radar detector sent the crowd into a frenzy.
