THE ECHO SOUND AGENCY LTD PRESENTS
**Not in order
Merging from many different bands, playing music just out of our own personal interest. Blending genres from Pop, Pop Punk & Pop Rock, the band started playing Blink-182, Green Day, You Me At Six, Fall Out Boy & All Time Low covers. in 2013, the band started writing their own songs, 4 tracks of the band was released for the debut EP 'Oceans Away' released on April 11th and marked with an sold out EP release show at Independent, Sunderland. A few covers to keep the crowd enticed and the energy filled originals. They soon have the crowd eating at the palm of their hands.
In 2014 in the dark weary (and wet) depths of the Newcastle music scene a slight rattle could be heard. That rattle was from those who resided close to the community center's (of which local pop punk heroes 'Northern Horizon' would rehearse) belongings.
This was due to sound waves of unbearable volume, emanating from drastically badly treated guitars plugged into terribly used amps and played in an uninventive and dull way.
This sound is what defined Northern Horizon as a band. As the band have no clue whatsoever as to what genre they are meant to be they settled for pop-punk....ish...
Since then, the band have performed at some fairly underpriced yet still quite satisfying gigs on the local scene, including a headline at thinktank in Newcastle.
The rest has yet to be told...but it shall be. And the band shall earn a place among the stories of legends and gods, such as Zeus, Ryan Gosling and Sonic.
Annex Vacation is an upcoming band from the North East of England.
Dalimore is an alternative-pop duo formed in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 2014 by founding members Dan Bishop (vocals, piano) and Nathan Brewis (drums, guitar). With previous ventures into other successful music projects, the pair has garnered an unmatched passion with the ambition of playing to thousands. Raw talent and unwavering dedication has led the do-it-yourself work ethic that has resulted in the launch of the band’s self-penned debut EP Lost.
