BBC Introducing will present the Thursday of Roundhouse Rising 2015 with a line-up hand-picked by Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens who will also host the night.

Welsh indie rock four-piece Pretty Vicious will headline the night, who despite only forming in 2014 already have labels racing to sign them.

Indie rock BBC Introducing favorites WULF will join Pretty Vicious at Rising 2015. The trio’s debut single Fire was premiered on Zane Lowe’s Next Hype, getting us all very excited for their soon to be released EP Liars.

Folly Rae will bring her instantly recognisable, haunting vocals to the line-up, with music that combines orchestral elements with an 80s style. Her performance at Rising comes ahead of the release of her debut EP, following a successful 2014 that saw her track Free Your Mind become DJ Target’s BBC Introducing track of the week and received support from Charlie Sloth, Mistajam and Huw Stephens.

Young four-piece The Tones will open the night, whose bassist is our very own Resident Artist Henry Webb Jenkins. The dynamic band have already begun making a name for themselves on the indie scene after supporting The Specials on tour with their live powerful and energetic performance.
