They combine dour imagery from suburban British life with a catchy optimism that is meted out in soaring choruses and hook-laden melodies.
Over the last few months the band have played City Show Case and Brighton’s Great Escape Festival, before heading into the studio to complete a number of songs with indie producer Paul Tipler (Placebo, Idlewild.)
Systematic is the first single from these recordings, and is distributed through State 51/Label Fandango.
M spent 30 seconds with the band to learn more...
How long have you been making music?
The band has been together for around a year and a half. Individually we have all been making music for donkey's years.
What inspired your latest single?
A desire to get out there and do something productive, and to do something that may have a positive effect on people in terms of the music we play. Our single Systematic is a journey of commuting, relationships and routine life. Something we all do everyday without thinking about it.
What process do you go through to create your music?
We come up with basic songs, melodies, ideas and often have writing sessions together with a few drinks to add spice. We take them into the rehearsal room and all elaborate to create the song. We try songs out live to get a reaction too.
How would you describe your sound?
Pop-punk with melodies and an element of satire. We grew up on a healthy diet of British music; The Smiths, Buzzocks, brit-pop, Benjamin Britten, oh, and a nod to the talents of Serge Gainsbourg.
What would your dream collaboration be?
This is the dream collaboration. Other than that the fella who came up with the ‘We Buy any Car’ theme tune.
