Country pop up and coming artist LEON MARSHALL had started playing guitar at the mere age of 6! But since then he has created his own music, including an EP and a handful of single's as well. Leon just wants to keep on writing, bettering his writing and music, getting out there to play in front of crowds once again. See what else he had to say from Leon himself below.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

I started playing guitar at around 6 and had always wanted to perform, in fact to be honest I think I probably really started playing because I wanted to be on Stars In Their Eyes as Elvis Presley and meet Matthew Kelly! 

I continued to play and started to write, and played my first paid gig when I was around 16, I gigged regularly at local Open Mic Nights and Folk Clubs for a couple of years and then stopped music to focus on Art and Sculpture. I then picked the guitar back up again several years ago and have been gigging and writing ever since…although I never made it on to Stars In Their Eyes!

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

I play under the name Leon Marshall. Marshall is my middle name, my surname Denison doesn’t quite sound as apt!

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

I am based in North Yorkshire and the music scene has always been pretty active, there’re lots of venues to play both headlining gigs as well as Open Mic’s, and it’s always a great friendly crowd. There are so many brilliant bands around at the moment, two of my favorites have to be The Paper Waits who are an alt-folk duo, their latest track “Kintsukuroi” is just incredible, and Flatcap Carnival who are a Latin-infused Skanival band, again a brilliant band, you just can’t help but dance as soon as they start!

4. How would you describe your style?

I would say my music has a Country-Pop sort of feel. It’s been described as Dr Hook meets Jamie Lawson, and I’m happy with that!

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

I released an EP a couple of years ago titled “Feel The Rain” (often misheard for being titled “Feel Lorraine”!) and since then have released a series of singles, with the next one “Going Nowhere” due for release on 23rd Oct. I love a catchy hook and something to tap my feet to, I think (I hope!) that comes across in my music.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Absolutely! I’m constantly writing, not all of it is good enough to share but I write all the time, and this lockdown period has been the perfect time to get my head down and pen to paper! (In between redecorating the house and learning to make the obligatory banana bread of course!) I’m back in the studio this next week to get a couple of tracks down and hopefully they’ll be ready to share soon!

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Like many others I’m sure I’m pretty quiet for the rest of the year, I’m uploading regularly to my socials and spending time getting more songs down ready to hit 2021!

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

My plan is to keep writing and keep trying to better my writing, and of course to get back out as soon as I can playing to big crowds again.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can find me on all streaming platforms and head to my website www.leonmarshall.co.uk

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

I want people to remember how the song made them feel the first time they heard it, if they smiled or cried, if it brought back fond memories, moments of pride or moments of sadness…and of course, I want people to remember the hook! With many of my songs, I find that when I’m performing, by the time I get to the last chorus the audience are starting to sing it with me and there’s no greater feeling.


Ethnic elemental rock band INREGALIA have released an array of content since their forming. A couple of single's and 2 EP's so far, as well as all new material expected real soon. The band hopes to build up a strong enough fanbase and connections within the online and offline worlds. The band goes on to do lots more talking about their music and where their from plus more!


 1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The band’s roots began in early 2011 when I met the former bass player through a musician who we were rehearsing with at the time.  It went through quite a few line-up changes until March of 2012 when Pete auditioned for the singer’s part and joined the band.  Finding a good and reliable drummer was the biggest obstacle.  I honestly have lost count on the number of drummers we’ve had to audition at around that time.  It wasn’t until April or May of the following year that we found Warren.  But we always felt we needed a keyboard player to complete the sound.  We’ve had a few good keyboard players who played for us during that time but it wasn’t until 2015 that we found Keith. Saurav took over the bass duties after our bass player quit the band.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

The band’s name was one of the 25 or so names I’d come up with during the time I played with a couple of cover bands when I was in the US.  A lot of the band names resonated with Metal music which was not what I was looking to write.  Later when I moved back to India, I’d pretty much set my mind on InRegalia though I didn’t have a band.  Only when the band took birth did we christen it with the band’s name.  I intended for the music to reflect a bit of ethnicity but yet have it resonate with a mass audience.  So, in retrospect, the name made sense from that point of view.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

The band is based out of Mumbai, India.  The music scene is quite diverse culturally speaking.  Most people in India consume music that is written for the movies.  The Hindi Film industry (Bollywood) churns out music which is consumed by a majority of them in India and NRI’s abroad.  Apart from that we’ve got music by the regional movie industries associated with most of the states, Indian classical music and also Folk music.  Indie music, on the other hand is a niche genre though its steadily growing in popularity.  As a band, we love Rock music primarily but we also appreciate music of other genres.  It’s really one language to us.  A couple of Indian bands I would recommend checking out are Motherjane and Indus Creed, who’ve also influenced our sound to a certain extent.

4. How would you describe your style?

Our basic style is Rock music which we pepper with ethnic elements.  We use subtle technicalities of classical music and blend it with Rock.  Compared to Fusion music which involves the use of Indian instruments like the sitar or the tabla, we use the typical Rock band setup but with these subtleties thrown in.  Our style also involves the use of mainstream music structures to suit a mass audience.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We’ve released 2 singles and 2 EP’s thus far.  The singles have a decent spread between Classic Rock music and ballads.  The songs have been recorded, mixed and mastered with various engineers but on the last EP 3 songs were recorded, mixed and mastered in-house.  The production work for those songs were done by our drummer Warren.  So, he is our resident expert now when it comes to production work (chuckles).  

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Yes.  We have a single releasing on the 30th of this month.  It’ll be our first instrumental as well.  Also, we’re working on a string of single releases starting early next year leading up to the middle of next year before we release our next EP,

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We’re always excited about live shows and touring but at the moment given the pandemic we’ll have to wait till life returns back to some normalcy.  All musicians globally are missing the live gigging atmosphere, that’s really where you connect.  That aside, live streaming is a possibility as well in the near future.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

That’s a very complex question to answer for DIY musicians.  There’s lots of plans but it all boils to one simple thing really – Building a strong fanbase and connecting with them online and offline.  That’s what we’ll be focusing on going ahead.  

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can listen to our music on all major digital streaming platforms.  You can also buy our music on Bandcamp.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

That’s an interesting question which is a little subjective in nature.  Based on the feedback we’ve received so far; I would think a first-time listener would be familiar with the sound but yet find something different in the music. 


Metalcore progressive band ETERNAL CLOSURE blends numerous metal genres together to make their own originality. Since forming they have had an EP and two albums. Including a re-release of their second album titled "Color of Our Fears: Rediscovered". For now, they just want to be themselves and have the discussion describing just that, as well as their music!


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

We have been playing in the Montreal scene since 2012. It started as a group of friends wanting to make some good heavy tunes and play some shows, but nothing extremely serious. We've been through quite a lot of member changes through our history, taking the project more and more seriously as time goes by. Jo and I (Olivier) are the only ones that are here since the beginning. Our latest new member Maggy has brought new possibilities to our music that I can't wait to explore on our next album. It hasn't always been easy, but we feel like the music is worth it, and that one day all the effort we've put into it will get back to us. It's hard work, but it's fun work! 

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Just a pretty typical brainstorm session really. I remember we also had ''A Year and A Day” and “Empty Faces” as some of the other choices. “Eternal Closure” sounded the best to us and we thought that it could mean different interesting things to different people. We liked the almost-but-not-quite paradoxical idea behind it.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We mostly play in the Montreal scene, and I feel like our sound is something that is slightly different than what everyone else is doing here. We blend a more old-school melodic metalcore vibe with modern progressive metal ideas while most bands we play with tend to be in a more. Hardcore/Deathcore vibe. I'd want to recommend everybody, but a few bands that come to my mind are Fractal Cypher, Endvade, Suicide For a King, Becoming The Bully, Sawyer Path, Fall of Stasis... Of course we can't forget the bigger bands like Beyond Creation or The Agonist. Go check some of them out if you haven't already!

4. How would you describe your style?

Like mentioned earlier, we blend Metalcore and Progressive Metal in a way that's pretty unique to us I think. If bands like As I Lay Dying, Killswitch Engage and August Burns Red had a kid with Periphery. There's also a bit of Dream Theater or Haken in there in the longer songs especially. There's a bit of everything but we try to mix it all in a way that is coherent and original. 

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We've released 3 albums (2 LPs and 1 EP). You can definitely see the evolution in the sound. People should expect something that is familiar but also exciting. Hitting all the right spots while also bringing some unexpected things. Our new release, “Color of Our Fears: Rediscovered” is a re-release of our second album with 3 added tracks that feature Maggy on vocals. We thought it was a neat way of showing off the new vocalist while we're working on larger projects!

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Absolutely. Always writing new material is the best way to get better at it. I hope we can show it off sooner than later, I feel like it's really strong material.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We had a good amount of shows planned before it all stopped with the pandemic situation. There was a two-day fest in Ontario that was supposed to happen this summer called the “Farm Fest” and we where extremely disappointed that it was cancelled for this year. Let's cross our fingers that we can eventually get back into it in 2021, we miss it for sure.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

What most bands want I think haha. We want it to be our life. We had a good amount of momentum before everything stopped which is really disappointing. We'll be ready when everything goes back to normal that's for sure. 

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Absolutely everywhere! Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Tidal, Deezer, Amazon... We also have our website www.eternalclosure.com and www.eternalclosure.bandcamp.com if you want to buy physical copies or merch. October 23rd is the release of Color of Our Fears: Rediscovered, so I'd say that's a good moment to start!

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

We want people to feel like we haven't wasted their time. We want to give people music that they can have fun passively listening to, but also get something more out of it if they really take the time to listen. 


Three piece band ATOMIC ROCKET SEEDERS have a handful of single's and their debut album is out this Halloween season! But they are also always writing and already have new material ready for the next album! But for now, the band bans together to talk of this album, how they got started and just wanting to get back out there to play as soon as possible!


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The music project started 7 years ago and it took 5 years to find the right people and get everything done to start with the gigs and recordings. Thierry “TAP” Porcedda (guitars, vocals) and Mike Ridel (guitars) were the founding members, although Mike unfortunately had to leave a few years ago. That’s also the moment we decided to work as a trio. TAP was then joined by bassist Thierry Hames and drummer Pascal Benci and that’s where it started to move forward. We had the opportunity to play many great gigs, for instance at the famous Metal festival Wacken Open Air in Germany and as opening act for LIMP BIZKIT in Luxembourg, and to start the recordings for our debut album, which will be release on October 30th. The band was then later joined by Bryan “Fox” Houe on the drums.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

One of our former bass players “Jellox” came up with that name. It fits the quite explosive songwriting and mainly socio-critical lyrics. So we decided to keep it.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Luxembourg is obviously an extremely small country. One big advantage we have is the ability to work with many people across the borders, which makes the whole thing pretty international. Although the country’s size, the Luxembourgish music scene is growing more and more, with many artists writing and recording music in a really high level of quality. To only mentions a few: Mutiny on the Bounty, Scarred, Desdemonia, and many more.

4. How would you describe your style?

In short: Alternative Metal. The core of most songs stay Metal but we’re including every Rock and Metal subgenres and also different genres like Blues or Jazzy parts that come to our minds. We try to keep the songwriting as interesting as possible.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

Four singles are already out on all common streaming platforms for everyone to listen to. Our first music video for “Eternal Ashes” was released on October 16th on YouTube and the debut album will be released on October 30th and also available as CD and limited edition double vinyl. We took our time to make sure that the sound quality on vinyl meets our quality standards as well as the whole package itself. We can’t wait to get it out there!

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We’re constantly writing new songs and have already the first ones ready for the second album. But right now our focus lies on the upcoming release of our debut album.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

With the pandemic going on, we didn’t plan any gigs for the album promotion. We thought it would be a good idea to plan out everything  around, so that we’re fully ready to hit the stage as soon as the world’s ready again. Meanwhile we’ll surely have some gigs here and there, which you can follow on our Facebook page.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

As mentioned before, we’d love to finally begin touring and playing gigs again. Unfortunately we’ll have to wait a bit longer for this to happen on a regular basis. Meanwhile we’re focusing on the album release and writing new songs.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Our music is available on all common streaming platforms and BandCamp, videos can be found on YouTube and the album will be available on CD and double vinyl, coming out October 30th.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

We’d love to create an interesting and engaging experience while listening to our album and seeing us performing live. This should be for the metalheads who enjoy many different subgenres and other styles of music.


ESCAPE THE FATE releases the new song “Invincible” to herald the start of the pre-order campaign for the band’s upcoming album, Chemical Warfare. The new single features critically-acclaimed, fan favorite, American violinist, songwriter, and dancer Lindsey Stirling.  “Invincible” will appear on the soundtrack to THE RETALIATORS, a high-octane horror/thriller due out in 2021. Vocalist Craig Mabbit also makes an appearance as an undercover cop in the film alongside some of rock’s biggest names including the members of Five Finger Death Punch, Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach and Tommy Lee among others.

“Invincible”, is the perfect word to use in describing ESCAPE THE FATE, the band has survived personnel changes and the cancellation of their tours due to the pandemic.  The band has been consistently releasing new music for well over a decade to their audience of over 4 Million dedicated social media followers. Check out the new song and video HERE.


Las Vegas rockers DEAD GIRLS ACADEMY is finally delivering their anticipated sophomore album, Doves In Glass Houses. The 11-track collection will be released worldwide on all digital platforms on October 30th. Today the band debuts the second track from the album, the bone-chilling “Addicted To Your Heart.” Check out the track right HERE.


OC metalcore mainstays ATREYU have shared the video for the new song "Save Us," which was produced by John Feldmann.

"'Save Us' is not only a reflection of where we are musically, but also a mirror to the world in this ominous moment in time," the band says. "We chose to pair the powerful message with one of the heavier songs we've ever written. This song feels like the anthem that we all need right now. To us, it's a call to action to light the fire in ourselves. We can begin to make great change — but only if we look inside first."

With singer Alex Varkatzas recently departing, drummer and clean vocalist Brandon Saller will move into the frontman role. Guitarist Porter McKnight is now handling the harsh vocals, while Kyle Rosa joins the ranks as drummer.

Atreyu are working on their eighth album, which will be released via Spinefarm Records. "Save Us" will appear on the record.

Rock n' roll band AMY MANTIS AND THE SPACE BETWEEN have been around since 2016. They have released three EP's thus far, with two all new EP's expected out soon. For now though, the band gives us the details about their history, namesake, and what they have next for everyone!


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

You got a minute? Haha. There’s a lot to tell here. Finding the right line-up has been the most challenging aspect of making this band. In a lot of ways, A Place to Land is a celebration of finding the right line-up, even if only momentarily.

I’ve been working toward this, playing guitar and writing songs, for almost 17 years. After seeing School of Rock, I didn’t want a guitar - I needed a guitar. Lo and behold, a sunburst Silvertone Revolver appeared in my living room on Christmas morning, 2003, and once I started I just didn’t stop. That was actually the inspiration for our song “I Don’t Know How To Stop.” Playing music is, in many ways, my natural state.

It took me nearly a year to write a song that I thought had some legs. I called up a friend who also played guitar and I played it for her over the phone. She wasn’t as impressed as I was! But I’d written a song, an actual song with two verses, a chorus, a bridge, and a snappy guitar solo! Once I had one, I knew I could write another, and another, and another.

I went to Berklee (Go Jazz Cats!), where I put together my first gigging band. That was where I learned how to be in a band and how to lead a band. Being in that environment helped me discover my talents and how to best put them to use. The earliest iteration of this project, Canary, named after the fake band name I used to hide my own work in my iTunes, made it all the way to SXSW, but came back without a singer. That’s really where Amy Mantis & the Space Between begins; I didn’t want to end up in that position again.

Not long after, my former songwriting partner and I responded to an ad from a drummer looking to put together a band, and that’s how we met Eric Marshall. Eric had just finished his MFA in fiction at Emerson, and was looking to get back into music after like a decade of not playing. He grew up playing in punk and hardcore and skacore bands in his hometown of New Bedford, MA. He and I are currently the only full-time members of the band.

From there, we tinkered with the line-up quite a bit, including auditioning a bassist who straight-up looked through my trash at the end of his audition. Like my outside trash. He didn’t even try to hide it. We were in the middle of a conversation. It was bizarre. This was when we were looking for bassists for our 2017 EP A Good Hurt, which we recorded with Wells Albritton and Jeff Fogleman. Wells left the band to pursue solo ventures after that EP, and the lineup you hear on A Place To Land is the power-trio version of Amy Mantis & the Space Between: Amy, Jeff, & Eric.

Since recording A Place To Land, Jeff has left the band, and Eric and I will carry on as a songwriting duo with plans to release two EPs of new material over the next year. Once live music resumes, we’ll start looking for members to flesh out our live band.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Despite the band’s first release being 100% a solo project, I was averse to using my own name in my work. I became a singer out of necessity and had a hard time wrestling with what that meant as far as taking ownership of my work. I had always been in a band where someone else sang my songs, and my dream was to be like Keith Richards or Pete Townshend - write the songs, lead the band, have someone else sing them.

But my singers kept quitting and so I took up the mantle. And I’m glad I did, even if there have been times where I felt otherwise along this journey. These days you’d have to wrestle the mic out of my hands.

The original name for the band was just “Space Between.” It came to me as I was flying back from LA after recording the Where the Mountain Should Be EP. That was my first time recording as the singer of my own songs. I was thinking about what to name that EP and had come up with the title The Space Between New And Old, as that’s where I felt like my music lived. And then I thought, “Why don’t I call the EP The Space Between? No. Why don’t I call the band The Space Between? It was a revelatory moment.

I also thought it sounded like a band that should already exist, and I liked that. I still don’t know how there wasn’t a band that popped up in like 1974 called The Space Between. It totally should have happened!

Eventually we dropped the “the” and started gigging as “Space Between.” Then after our keyboard player/my songwriting partner moved to LA, I thought, “I’m singing and writing all the songs now, and my name is highly Googleable - I think it should go in front of the band name.” So I proposed this idea to Eric and Jeff. They were supportive, and now here we are.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We're from Boston, Massachusetts where there is no shortage of local artists and bands, we just wish we could see all our friends and fans at the shows! 

Some artists we love are Julia Mark, Lyle Brewer, Slow Dress, Ghost Box Orchestra, Vundabar, Pile, and Mini-Dresses. And our favorite venue in Boston is definitely the Midway. It’s kind of our home base, our stomping ground. We’ve never had a bad night there. We miss that place deeply right now.

4. How would you describe your style?

We’re a rock band. It sounds so simple, but that’s what we are. We draw on a wide range of influences, and I think that shows in the nuance and dynamics of our songs, but I always come back to saying, “We're a rock band.”

I think we also each bring something unique to the band in terms of background, style, or taste. My background is firmly entrenched in the classics, the golden age of rock, but Jeff’s interests are more toward prog and experimental music, while Eric finds ways to inform our sound with his punk and hardcore background.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

In total, we’ve released three EPs -- Where the Mountain Should Be, A Good Hurt, and No Place To Land -- and two singles -- “You Shouldn’t Have To Ask” and “I Don’t Know How To Stop.”

You can expect lyrics that have questions but not answers, thoughtful and dynamic arrangements, and non-gratuitous guitar solos. 

People call us “the jam band for people who hate jam bands,” because our music gears toward that classic rock, rhythm ‘n blues sound and approach, but we’re very economical and audience-conscious. We also make an effort to push our writing and arrangements into new territory on each record.

On A Place To Land, we really tried to capture the essence of our live show, and while there are overdubs, we use them sparingly compared to most contemporary modern rock records. All the songs were recorded live in the studio with very few comps. We challenged ourselves to have the material down to a T so that we could get the sound we were looking for. 

We’ve also been lucky to work with really great producers at some jaw-dropping studios. Previously, we worked with Brian Packer at Kingsize Soundlabs in LA, which has an incredible old Neve board. Right now, we’re recording with Sean Mclaughlin, who’s worked with everyone from Marilyn Manson to Elliott Smith, at 37’ Productions in Rockland, MA, which is, for our money, the best studio in the region. Sean is a pleasure to work with, too. Just a great vibe. He’ll be playing bass on our upcoming EPs as well.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Yes! We’re heading into the studio in October and November to record material for two new EPs. We’re wicked excited about these songs and how they’ve come together so far. It’s the most collaborative effort we’ve done to date as far as songwriting goes, and we think this approach has given us an even more focused and robust sound.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Given the times we’re currently going through, touring and live performances are pretty much off the table. We played our last show on March 1st. We’d love to do some live streams, like a lot of other bands are right now, but with no live bassist, an album dropping, and two upcoming recording sessions, we’ve got plenty to do in the meantime.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Keep writing, keep recording, keep releasing music. I feel like we’re really hitting our stride with the songs we’ve been working on, and I have no intentions of stopping that momentum. I also find that going into the studio gets the wheels turning for me as far as writing goes. And as soon as it’s safe for us to play shows again, we’ll be making up for lost time. Our live show packs a punch that we miss throwing.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Anywhere and everywhere music can be found both now and in the future. But for now, Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube - you know, the usual places. For direct purchases, you can find our album on Bandcamp - www.amymantis.bandcamp.com.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

What a great question. Music shaped my world in more ways than I can count. I remember sitting up bolt upright in bed after hearing “Black Dog” by Led Zeppelin for the first time and thinking, “Music can do THIS!?” I’ve cried at more concerts than not, and I think I’d like a listener to remember that they’re not alone, that they have a companion in all this. Life is messy and complex and riddled with ups and downs, and I think if we can be the reason you’re singing along at the top of your lungs or air-guitaring or drumming on your steering wheel on the way home from a hard day at work, then that’s pretty good. If we can make you sit bolt upright in bed and think, “Music can do THIS?” that’s even better.


Alternative rock band SINAI PLANUM have released their first single "Burn The Hideaway" as well as working upon a new EP. This band has no plans on slowing down, the band goes on to discuss these matters and what lays ahead for them.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

It all started when we used to play with friends in a small studio provided by our school. At this time the band was formed by Jan (guitarist), Alex Cionca (singer) and Loïc (drummer) and other good friends. In High School, we (Jan and Alex Cionca) formed another band as Loïc went to another school, so we went out of touch a little. After we decided to break it up in 2016, we met again to jam with Loïc. We finally needed a bass player, and we thought about Alex Kawecki, whom we met in music class in High School. After some jams and covers, we decided to be more serious and make our own songs. Now it’s been 3 years and we feel fortunate to have great chemistry, even if each member has its own musical taste, which ultimately is a strength, we think.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

To be honest, we've had a hard time finding the name. As we started to write our own music we realized there was a tendency for "sci-fi and spacey" sounds, as with our interests in cosmic-related stuff. So one day we were talking about Mars and looking at names of a few regions on there and that's when we saw the name of Sinai Planum. And it kind of spoke to us, we could shape our own world around it and we liked that idea.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We have our studio in Perroy, a small but pretty little village near Lausanne, where most of the music scene happens. We are lucky because this region has a very rich cultural scene and contains an incredibly high density of big festivals like the Montreux Jazz or Paléo. There are many great bands in our area. We highly recommend our friends from Fixit and Peacebone. They are young and fresh. You should check them out!

4. How would you describe your style?

I think you can say that, we're kind of a garage rock, alternative rock band with some weird unorthodox tracks sometimes. We're mostly inspired by a few works of the late 90's like Queens of the Stone Age and some new bands like King Gizzard & the Lizzard Wizard and All Them Witches.

We like high-energy drums with overdriven riffs mixed with catchy lyrics, even if every now and then we create calm, echo-y songs that make you relax after all that vitality. Sometimes we like to write a straight-to-the-point tune that’s in your face, and sometimes we like to take our time and shape our songs in long, strange structures. We also noticed that, in the writing process, we tend to mix these compact « verse-chorus » parts with these extended trippy breaks. On some occasions, that works and we love it, as in Visions. However, at times, we realize that it doesn’t fit the song and we have to start the structure over. It’s all about the balance.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

For now we have released 3 singles. The first one "Burn the hideaway" came out in 2019. We recently dropped "Rocket Fuel" & "Visions" which are part of our soon-to-be released EP. From the beginning, we set up the challenge to record our songs ourselves as Jan has always loved the production aspect of songwriting. So we invested in lots of recording gear, microphones, preamps, cables, etc… This gave us a lot of flexibility which also made it harder for us to set things for good. As we are perfectionists it can take a lot of time to make a song in its whole.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We're about to release our self-produced EP named "Sauvage Café" on November 20th and we're already recording another single called "Circles". We have a lot of songs to record next but recording and mixing takes a lot of time. We hope to have an efficient 2021.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We love playing live but unfortunately we've had a few gigs cancelled because of the current pandemic. However, we will have the pleasure to play the release-party of our upcoming EP on both November 20th & 21st, respectively at the Regional Rock, Lausanne & La-Bille, La Sarraz. Moreover we have dates for 2021 to be confirmed.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

For 2021, we plan to release 5 singles and develop our visual universe by shooting many video clips and we're already working on the one for the next single. We are very fond of the idea of working with musicians outside of the band as we did with Timothée Spörli who played the trumpet in "Visions" and we want to push this concept even more with another special guest on our upcoming single "Circles" !

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

We're on most streaming platforms like Bandcamp, Spotify, iTunes. As of today, we have no merch but if you want to help us, you can buy our songs on Bandcamp. Merch will follow soon.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

The primary thing we want to transmit to the listeners is the energy that we channel in our songs. As the lyrical content is up for interpretation and everyone will find a different meaning, we hope that the vitality we put in will somehow motivate people to keep going forward, dance when they feel like dancing and sing when they feel like singing. This is the beauty of rock music and this is why we love it so much.
