Some describe their sound as ‘bluesy rock with hip hop rhythms’, but even this kind of juxtapositional statement doesn’t quite cover it. The band’s organic way of songwriting gives you ‘the feeling that every single second has been filled with crafted perfection’ (Right Chord Music). With a sound that brings Jack White or the Black Keys to mind, Little Brother Eli take strong and powerful vocals, growling guitar lines and gritty, biting solos to create their own twist on Alternative Rock.
The band was formed in Oxford during early 2013 by bassist Josh Rigal and vocalist Alex Grew. They were soon joined by Linus Taylor & Adam Stowe on guitar and Benji Page on drums before releasing their Debut EP in May the same year.
Having played together for many years under various guises, Jenny Oliver (bass, vocals), Mike Smith (guitar, vocals), and Pete Smith (drums, vocals) present their first project as a trio: LUCY LEAVE. After several months of improvising, writing, and rehearsing, they emerged in April 2015 with a collection of noisy, psychedelic, punky pop songs. For just over a year, LUCY LEAVE have been launching their sounds towards a mostly unsuspecting Oxford crowd who speak of a ‘rawness’ of sound that is ‘almost bohemian in its punkness’.
Hey, we're a two piece female rock band from Oxfordshire and Shropshire. Rhi on the drums and Hannah on the guitar.
We met through GumTree in 2014, but we've only been a band since January 2016 where we were originally in a four piece, then became a two piece right before we were about to record our first EP 'No Good For Me' (out 27th May 2016). We recorded the EP in Watford with the amazing Ben Sansom (guitarist in Lower Than Atlantis) and Adam Ross (singer in the band Never Hill). We spent a week in the studio, live recording all 4 songs 'Destination' 'No Good For Me' 'Song 21', and having the pleasure to co-write the our 'Mirror' with Ben and Adam in realtime. Most nights were spent in the hotel room finishing writing the songs or trying to come up with a name for ourselves. We only decided on the name WOLFS about half way through the week!
MY CROOKED TEETH
My Crooked Teeth is an Oxford-based solo project, with a love for concise and beautiful songwriting. In the vein of his heroes Nick Lowe, Benjamin Gibbard and John K Samson, Crooked Teeth's songs are short, elegantly melodic and each have a story to tell.
