Introducing…Stagecoach

Posted on 21 September 2010 by Joe

Continuing our regular look at unsigned bands.

Where are they from? The Surrey Mountains, UK

Who are they? Luke – sings, six strings; Nick – six strings; John – four strings; Matt – drums, sings; Tom – eight strings, sings.

What do they sound like? “Grot Pop for BMX Kids” they say. Think a 90s alt-pop revival and you won’t be far away. The hooks are strong and the energy is infectious. The band have already been heard by millions after featuring on the soundtrack of Skins and Party Animals (on BBC 2) and enjoyed support slots with several bands including Phoenix and The Wombats.

What have they got to say for themselves? “We’re a band from various villages in the Surrey hills. We started off as a 2 piece and added a new member every year until we felt we could comfortably rock a stadium. I guess we formed the band because we’re no good at sports and don’t have any other hobbies apart from maybe skimming stones. We wanted to make country music but things evolved around the time we rediscovered our tape collections from 1993. The songs are about the usual stuff, hot dogs, cars and girls.”

What releases/tracks should I look out for? Currently promoting their first proper release, the We Got Tazers! EP, through Alcopop records. There are plans for a limited-edition Christmas release of some acoustic songs and a follow-up EP, along with a tour, early in 2010.
