Pensacola Mist are the high contrast synth-pop trio who've become known for their electric, larger-than-life energy, both in their music and on-stage where their customised light show and powerhouse vocals earned them a spot in the ‘Top 10 NE Artists to See Live’ list by NE Volume Magazine.
Based in North East England and Scotland, the high contrast synth-pop trio are inspired by the synths and cinema of the 1980s. The group have received national radio play on both BBC Radio 6 and BBC Introducing.
Oliver Payn (Lead Vox/Bass) oozes laidback vibes, with an impressive vocal range backed by his driven-yet-melodic bass style.
Daniel Lee Cox (Synth/Guitar/Vox) uses an array of digital and physical instruments to deliver a larger-than-life soundscape and dazzling lighting effects show.
Melissa McNaught (Vox) uses her deathly-sweet vocals to add a huge new dynamic to live shows and recordings.
Catchy, upbeat Friday night synthpop with a dark and melancholic edge. An absolutely unique show.

"Pensacola Mist is fast becoming my favourite wave to ride in this music scene. Impeccable production, beautiful vocals, wonderful aesthetics. What more could you want?" - Neon Fawkes
"Pensacola Mist is a band to pay attention to. Not only do they deliver those wonderful nostalgic vibes we all love, but also a fresh and original sound that music desperately needs now." - The Quarantine Club
