The Microdance is looking for a soundscape-loving/shoegazer female synth player with vocals. We are not exclusively a shoegaze band but want to add those textural elements to our sound. There are lead synth lines in some of our songs whilst others require background noise to augment the softer parts and others require walls of noise to augment already massive guitars (a-la The Joy Formidable). If you can play guitar too, that would be a bonus - yet not essential...
As far as vocals go, we’re after someone who can sing lead lines but also add the diaphanous softness and lushness of something like Jenny Lewis’s vox on Give Up by Postal Service or Rachel Goswell’s Slowdive lines, and those heard on various other shoegazer projects.
We’re hitting the studio before the end of the year to record our best material yet, with much higher production values than those heard on our current recordings.
In the meantime, we’re currently pushing our EP ‘Get Dark’ which can be heard, amongst other songs, at www.myspace.com/themicrodance. Get Dark has garnered significant acclaim, got us some great gigs and a shout out from The Joy Formidable.
We have genuine label interest, wicked contacts and hope to take over the world. Hard working, quick learning and thick-skinned people only please; we are a very serious band (although we do like to have fun!)
Notable influences include: Pumpkins, MBV, Silversun Pickups, The Cure, The Joy Formidable, New Order, Slowdive, Interpol, Death Cab, Postal Service, Deftones,
