As the headline states, we’re a new Bristol-based originals band. We’re called ‘We Used To See The Sky’ and we’re looking for a drummer.
While it’s difficult to describe ourselves exactly at this point, it’s probably fair to say that we’re something of an indie pop/alt/rock band. Our aim is to establish ourselves on the Bristol live music scene, record an album and then see what happens. The four people in the band so far are aged between early thirties and mid forties, and we have a real mix of musical/live experience levels, so we don’t care whether you’ve never played live or have played hundreds of gigs, as long as you’re the right person for us.
Our influences include Radiohead, Bowie, Talking Heads, Jack White, The Charlatans, Everything Everything, Steven Wilson and Godspeed You Black Emperor. We don’t sound exactly like any of these, but the music we listen to is in the band’s DNA.
Here’s our page on Soundcloud where you can find several demos (recorded before we had our bass guitarist!): https://soundcloud.com/weusedtoseethesky
Please listen firstly to see if you’re interested in our music, and secondly to think about what your drumming skills could add to the band. The drums you will hear in the demos have been made using the EZdrummer plug-in on PC, so we are very much looking forward to having an actual human on the sticks. Please also note that they were made before we had a bassist!
If you like the sound of us and are interested in becoming our drummer, then please reply to this post. Then we can have a chat and hopefully arrange an audition. We rehearse on Wednesday nights, usually at Dockside Studios in Bristol.
We look forward to hearing from you.
