I Am Arrows, Little Comets and Alan Pownall added

Three of the country’s most exciting new acts will join The Charlatans, Ocean Colour Scene and Teenage Fanclub on the Summerisle Main Stage of the ninth Wickerman Festival near Kirkcudbright on 23 and 24 July.
 
Today, (July 12) festival organisers are excited to announce the addition of I Am Arrows, Little Comets and Alan Pownall to an already bulging bill.
 
Fresh from supporting Muse on their European dates, I Am Arrows features former Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows upfront on vocals, guitar and keyboards. Described as a meld of The Beatles, MGMT and Elliott Smith, the North London outfit are signed to Universal. Their debut long player Sun Comes Up Again is released on July 19 and was previewed as one of NME's Albums of 2010.
 
Sunderland/ Newcastle-upon Tyne four piece Little Comets cite Debussy, Roald Dahl, Ella Fitzgerald and Paul Simon as influences and have toured with bands including Hockey, The Twang and Noisettes.  Their single last year One Night in October received strong backing from Huw Stevens, Zane Lowe and Sara Cox and made it to number three in the UK independent singles chart.
 
Looking like Bowie done up as a 40s matinee idol, art school drop-out Alan Pownall was spotted at London’s Troubador by ‘Chasing Pavements’ Adele who took him out on tour and made sure he was introduced to all the right people. Writing beautifully breezy yet understated loping pop tunes, his debut album True Love Stories is out July 19.
 
There are new announcements elsewhere at Wickerman too. The Scooter Tent, which explodes with some of the best punk and ska acts around, now sees Bombskare, MetalTech, The Famous Class, Esperanza and Joe Viterbo all now confirmed.
 
“Just when you thought the line-up couldn’t get any better we have all these new bands added to the bill. Wickerman is all about discovery and having a good time and we’re sure I Am Arrows, Little Comets and Alan Pownall will make an amazing weekend even more unforgettable.”
Jamie Gilroy, land owner and director
 
The Wickerman Festival takes place near Kirkcudbright, Dumfries & Galloway, on Friday 23 and Saturday 24 July, and will welcome an eclectic line-up of rock, indie, punk, electro, techno, drum & bass, reggae and folk music across eight stages. There will also be the most extraordinary selection of extra activities to be found on any festival site anywhere in the world.
