I've recently moved to London and am missing being in a band already. Currently I'm listening to a lot of Johnny Foreigner, Les Savy Fav, Football etc, The Dismemberment Plan, Speedy Ortiz, Annabel, Signals Midwest, Dowsing, Pretty Girls Make Graves, The Notwist, etc etc. I'm looking to either join an existing band or start a new one that's not a million miles away from those sorts of influences, but really I'd consider anything that doesn't sound like the Kooks or Metallica.
For an idea of what my vocals sound like, my previous band is here:
