THE MORNING BENDERS
The Morning Benders are a band from Berkeley, California, formed in 2005, consisting of Julian Harmon, Tim Or, Jonathan Chu, and Christopher Chu. In 2008, they released their debut album Talking Through Tin Cans on +1 Records. Now signed to Rough Trade Records, the band released their Sophmore effort Big Echo in May this year to widespread acclaim. Produced by Chris Chu and Chris Taylor (Grizzly Bear), it boasts a self-proclaimed "family of songs" that range from majestic and jangly indie rock splendour to more stately, slower and considered indie-rock jams to lose yourself in on a darkened eve. Coupled with recent tours with the likes of Broken Bells, Grizzly Bear and Yeasayer, the band now find themselves with a legion of impassioned international fans hooked on a fantastic record, and band, that to many introduced a wonderfully talented new group with big hearts and aspriations aplenty.
Evryone are a three piece experimental pop band consisting of Chris Banner, Tom Andrews and Nicholas Bovill. Their songs are densely populated with as many ideas as they can fit into 4 minutes and squirm between the theatrical, with pounding piano keys and sing along backing vocals, and the eccentric alterna-rock world of Grizzly Bear and Yeasayer. The lead vocal vacillates between spiky and impetuous and velvety soft and confidently leads the songs cohesively through their myriad twists and well executed turns.
Founded by young Fran Barker in a leaky Brighton conservatory with a four-track, a miscellany of instruments and a bag load of fuzzy influences, including Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine, the band are set to release their double A-side debut single though Manchester's Label Fandango, part of the much loved Fierce Panda label, later this month. The eary demos, raw acoustic creations, earthy and shoe-gazey, captivated the interest of fellow band member Neil Claxton, formerly of Manchester based Mint Royale, who adds synths and electro pop sensibilities to Fran’s dreamy, introspective songs. Push It Away has gathered warm reviews in the with BBC Manchester called it 'a driving piece of pop, as infectious as it is intense'
