New Portals - Cage

Still fresh on the synth-pop circuit, New Portals are already making a dent. As versatile song-writers, Ruth & Mike have already notched up over 13 million Spotify streams, paving the way to regular college and indie radio playlistings and garnering support from BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens & Phil Taggart whilst also bagging some column inches from The Guardian and aligning with international brands such as MAC Cosmetics, Sky TV, Starbucks & H&M. As well as SXSW 2017, their music can be found in an increasing number of films and TV shows:
