Hi all, hope you’re well.
I’m looking to put together a live band together for a project to debut at end of year/next year (pending due to lockdown). I’m seeking an open-minded guitarist and drummer to join the fold and pitch in on helping develop the sound during rehearsal/writing sessions aswell. I’m already working with a composer/keys member on the electronic aspects of the sound, whom has an impressive collection of synths (we’re aiming to sequence bass this way too; if all all else fails, we’ll then seek out an actual bass player).
A bit about the project..
I started it myself in 2018 and independently produced my own EP and single in early 2019. I then spent the next year writing further material in Melbourne and have just released a charity single through the project upon my return to the U.K.
My aim moving forward is to collaborate with more musicians on developing this and taking it as far as we can, hopefully starting with playing some live shows alongside the release of another EP. The latter of which will be done professionally; all demos done at home and recorded professionally in a studio. We’ve have had some label interest that can help us with recording and other essentials – we just need to draft in other musicians for performance and the rest. We’re very commited to the project and have a specific vision for it, however we want to have as much fun as we can whilst taking it as far as we can too. This is creative and artistic foremost above anything else.
So we are seeking a versatile, skilled and open-minded guitarist and drummer in the London/Kent/Essex areas. We are both 31 so anyone between 25-38 would be ideal but not essential. Your own gear (guitars, amps, FX pedals and perhaps some trigger pads for drums would be a DEFINITE bonus). Own transport would be a bonus too.
We’re open-minded and have a vast array of influences – we want this to be something that’s obviously a melting pot of inspiration but with something real unique..we’re very much into atmosphere and how that translates and the idea is to incorporate it into more conventional and digestible song structures. A link to some material to listen to is here: https://soundcloud.com/user-522013478
Our influences are as follows: The Cure, Massive Attack, Placebo, Portishead, Morcheeba, M83, David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Foals, Goldfrapp, The National, James Blake, RY X, FKA Twigs, Frank Ocean, Deftones/Crosses/Team Sleep, Joy Division, Lana Del Rey, Caribou, Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle, TV on the Radio, Wild Beasts, Smashing Pumpkins, Christine and the Queens, NZCA Lines, Snow Ghosts, Trentmoller, Vok, Grimes, Sampha, Haelos, Mogwai, Art School Girlfriend, various film scores and loads more.
Get in touch if you want to make/perform some decent original music and you think you’d be a good fit! We’re fun-loving people and love socialising so all good if you’re open to talking about music over a few pints every now and then too 🙂
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
