THIS ELEGANT CHAOS
Steph (Vocals/Guitar), Paul (Lead Guitar), Mark (Drums) and Greg (Bass) bring real in your face rock music back to the Midlands and the waiting world, playing songs laced with personal heartbreaking and reflective lyrics of real lives actually lived.
With influences ranging from My Chemical Romance through Adam Ant and Nirvana with a sprinkling of all things rock, This Elegant Chaos live up to their name as a band writing songs about the dark side of their lives, with beautiful tunes that will be swimming around your head for days.
It’s hard to define a genre with such an array of influences with songs varying from grunge (nu and old), pop rock, pop/punk, heavy rock and even hints of metal in the mix!! Let’s just say THIS ELEGANT CHAOS ROCK!
The band was conceived from a drunken conversation between Steph and Paul, with Paul begging Steph to use her beautiful vocal talent over songs written in his bedroom. Steph was busy with a covers band at the time, so nothing materialised, until Steph met Mark. Mark wanted to get back behind the kit following a successful time in previous band Rivers Edge, and having always wanted to create a female fronted rock band he persuaded Steph to get in touch with Paul.
They got together for their first jam July 2010, and things went really well…all that was left was to find a name. After hearing a Julian Cope song on the radio, and being a fan, Mark decided it was apt to name the band after the line “in this elegant chaos I stand to one side”. Steph and Paul loved the name…
This Elegant Chaos was born!
The writing process was fast and within months the self titled EP was recorded and the band started to play the live circuit as a 3 piece. After a few shows it was apparent a piece was missing… a bass player. After a stressful search, Dan was found. With his addition to the Chaos family, the band was complete.
With writing coming easily to the band nearly every live show can give a sample of new songs, and with a loyal following already building up, a live show which comes with a decibel warning is really where to hear this amazing band.
