We are a fairly recently formed 4-piece indie rock band from London (two SW, one NW, one out in the sticks). We’re currently attempting three sets of vocals, but looking to add more vocals and harmonies after we lost a vocalist to work commitments.
Collective inspo that (maybe) spills over into our sound is stuff like Rilo Kiley, Cloud Nothings, Japandroids, Pixies, Broken Social Scene, Hop Along, Replacements, Dinosaur Jr, Haim, Husker Du, Van Pelt, Los Camp, Martha, Snail Mail, REM, Waxahatchee and the like. And besides almost having an album’s worth of material now we also do some rambunctious covers of the Thermals (Husk approved on twitter, wheeeeey), Prince, and Wire.
Whilst only becoming a full band at the beginning of the year we’re playing live shows (they all went well, thanks!), and have several more booked (including one on Monday at the Half Moon in Putney - quick plug - apologies).
Our current setup is 2 guitars (several distortion pedals), bass, and drums, but we also have a couple of keyboards and a MicroKorg, so if you’re handy with keys then that’s all the better. And if you play any other instrument that would be a bonus, too.
We’re 4 guys in our late 20s/early 30’s, all very convivial/easy going and open to ideas. Very unlikely to trash hotel rooms, though would take the mini shampoos and rinse their wifi.
You can have a listen to our stuff on bandcamp (pethates)

If you’re interested and would like to be involved in helping us make some fun, foot tapping, indie rock ear worms, we’d love to hear from you.
Cheers/have a good day.
