“Atmospheric guitars and tumbling rhythms explode into magnificent, angry colours… somewhere between the post-rock soundscapes of Thought Forms and the harmonious melodies of Yuck.” God Is In The TV 

 “Like Stevie Nicks singing with PJ Harvey… Ellie Langley’s vocals drip with attitude and menace”  Gigslutz

 “One of the most exciting new bands around” – Songwriting Magazine

“A sweet/sour mix of prescient, razor wit and winning tunefulness… Highly recommended.”

The Digital Fix 

Horse Party are singing guitarists Ellie Langley and Seymour Quigley, and drummer Shannon Hope.  Having crossed paths at Seymour’s Washing Machine club nights in their hometown of Bury St Edmunds, the trio bonded over a shared desire to spend the rest of their lives making the kind of records they’d want to listen to.  A string of self-released singles caught the attention of UK indie Integrity Records, who released their debut LP ‘Cover Your Eyes’ in May 2014 to critical acclaim and airplay from 6music’s Lauren Laverne and Steve Lamacq, Shell Zenner at Absolute Radio and XFM’s John Kennedy.

In July 2014 they played Latitude Festival’s Lake Stage at the invitation of Radio One’s Huw Stephens and BBC Suffolk Introducing. Horse Party’s new single, ‘Out Of Sight/Receiver’, will be released Monday 23rd February 2015 on limited edition 7” black vinyl as a co-release by R*E*P*E*A*T Records and the band’s own Pure Deadly imprint.

It’s the word that best describes Symmetry, an alternative pop rock band based out of Los Angeles.

“Genre bending sound that is simultaneously fresh & powerful, yet absolutely radio-friendly” Jay Rawley – Louder Than War

This innovative band consists of Michael Campbell (vocals), Jared Hara (guitar), Will Weiner (bass) and Max D’Anda (drums). Symmetry formed in early 2013. Later that year, they released their debut full-length album, Frozen In Time, produced by James Paul Wisner (Dashboard Confessional, Paramore, Underoath).

Guitarisrt Jared lost his eyesight at 12 before ever picking up his first guitar, but now is living proof that tragedy can reveal hidden potential.

(“Sometimes in darkness, we find ourselves” says Jared).

Their debut album was widely supported in the US. A breathtaking debut was comleted when they were awarded the ‘Best rock Song’ award by Hollywood Music in Media.

Symmetry gained worldwide fans on tour with Room 94 in the U.K. on the Live Nation No Strings Attached Tour last year and will be heading back to the UK, Ireland and Poland as the main support act for Room 94 on the Live Nation promoted Dirty Dancing Tour. You can see them on the following dates –

Asylums – Wet Dream Fanzine [Debut EP]
Dave Rowntree [Blur] – Asylums are like Blur if they’d grown up in Seattle and signed to Sub Pop 
NME Radar – Like being caught between a hammer and an anvil
Clash Magazine [Track Of The Day] – Frenetic post-hardcore with a pop edge. Think Johnny Foreigner, say, or McLusky let loose with a cowbell
Q Magazine [Track Of The Day] – Costal Indie Fuzz Merchants
Louder Than War [Track Of The Day] – Remember how exciting it was when we first caught a glimpse of Supergrass or The Manics or even the Buzzcocks?…
The 405 – full of blistering energy thats just down right fun
The Devil Has The Best Tuna – When you hear the ferociously energetic I’ve Seen Your Face In A Music Magazine, which sounds like XTC’s alter egos The Dukes of Stratosphere after a protein shake overdose, you’ll understand what all the fuss is about
Little Indie Blog [Track Of The Day] – New Essex boys Asylums crank up the fuzz grunge
The Von Pip Musical Express  [Track Of The Day] mix of power melody and frenzied speed that leaves you felling invigorated if not slightly dazed

Asylums – Wet Dream Fanzine [debut EP]

Out Feb 23rd via Cool Thing Records (the bands own label)

The debut EP from Southend-On-Sea newcomers Asylums.

New single ‘Wet Dream Fanzine’ played by Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Phil Taggart (BBC Radio 1), Steve Lamacq (BBC 6 Music) and John Kennedy (Xfm) in the last week.

Support for the tracks on the EP from Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart at BBC Radio1 – Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson at 6Music – John Kennedy and Dave Rowntree at XFM – Gary Crowley and Paul Lester at Amazing Radio.

First they killed your television… Then, their faces were in music magazines… Now they’ve had a wet dream…

Asylums want to take you on a trip…back to the days of chainsaw guitars and chaotic fun! They release their debut EP ‘WET DREAM FANZINE’ and the new single of the same name on February 23rd via on their very own label, Cool Things Records.

The ep features the vigorous title track, in which the band take a swipe at sex and the internet, alongside their two previous DIY blasts of explosive Southend fuzz. The Death Of Television introduced them in a perfectly formed 1 minute and 20 seconds of sharp, angular edges and had Blur and XFM’s own Dave Rowntree hooked, they sound like; ‘’Blur, if they’d grown up disgruntled, and in Seattle and signed to Sub Pop” according to Dave, and he should know!

The smash n’ grab hooks of ‘I’ve Seen Your Face In A Music Magazine’ followed. By now the likes of Radio1 and XFMwere playing them and NME, Clash, Loaded, Louder Than War and Subba Cultcha were writing very very nice things about them. Headline shows, club nights plus a tour with Cobain favorites The Vaselines proved unequivocally that Asylums are an utterly glorious and furiously unstoppable live band. And, aren’t they the very best kind?

A band steeped in 90’s indie and the US underground, their catchy, thoughtful odes to isolation, commercialization and loss of innocence together with gigs gigs and more gigs – plus homemade videos staring sock puppets, of course – have helped them build a fanbase and a community, and, all of this, with no…social…media…not so much as a tweet was heard from them…til…now!!!

The band will be making their first, tentative steps into the world of social media in the 2015. Concentrating to date on building a fanbase, a community, playing as many shows as possible and getting their music to people they think may appreciate it enough to play it on the radio or write about it may seem unusual these days but the band felt they’d wanted to have something to talk about rather than trying to build followers with instagram photos of their dinner. Revolutionary, we know; Luke; “None of the bands we loved growing up had social media, so we thought we’d hold off using it as long as possible. We wanted things to build organically and for people to bring their mates to shows, to have something happening for the right reasons. We want to continue that ethos using social networking and just make it that bit easier for people to find us”
