As we're just about to put a record out, my new band are looking to get out and play our songs in places. However, we're finding it to be a bit of a battle to find promoters who'd actually put us on a bill with bands that we'd actually fit in with. Of course, if you're in a like-minded band and you're up for putting something on, let's DO IT! There's only two of us (vocals/guitar/synth and vocals/synth/samples/drum machine) and we have minimal kit - we're cheap and cheerful!
If any of you can help us, here's our latest press release, including useful links:
Camden shoegazers You The Living have hit the ground running with their debut single, "Reprobates" weeks ahead of their EP, "I". A cavernous wash of pitch-shifted guitar, icy synths and ghostly, half-whispered boy-girl harmonies offer a dark twist to the genre's usual warm blanket of sound.
Download "Reprobates" for free at http://www.soundcloud.com/youtheliving/reprobates. For live dates, keep an eye on http://www.facebook.com/youtheliving - word on the street is that they've got some nifty tricks up their black, drapey sleeves.
We'd love to play festivals and gigs in mainland Europe, too! Any help and/or contacts that you can give us will be appreciated.
