Manchester’s hottest new band Bipolar Sunshine headlined Lunch Time Live at Bench Self Made Gallery in May, playing a stripped back version of their expansive sound to  Oldham Street. Having since gone on to sell out nearby Soup Kitchen (and with other, much bigger, plans in the pipeline), their debut EP Aesthetics has been spun by everyone from Zane Lowe to John Kennedy, regularly getting DJs at 6Music, Xfm and Radio 1 more than a little excited. In this candid clip, main man Adio and his band play their breakout hit Fire with little more than an acoustic guitar, as well as explaining some of the ideology behind the project. With a just-announced hook up with Rudimental in the works, you’ll likely be hearing a lot more from them in the very near future – just as you can expect more from previous Self Made stars Letters to Fiesta and Brown Brogues
