Last month I asked the awesome people that have chosen to follow me on twitter whether they could recommend me an amazing band that I haven’t heard of. It sounds tough but I feel like everyone has at least a couple that they know of that haven’t quite reached as many ears as they should. And so this proved true. The playlist that I made from all the selections I’ve been playing all month in my car and this one is one of the best. I’ll definitely put together a rar at the end of the feature but in the mean time…

@sayhitohannah: Canterbury (@CanterburyMusic)

Canterbury

You might predict that from their names James, Luke, Mike and Scott are English but from their sound you wouldn’t think they’re from the Surrey/Hampshire border. They met, as many young British bands do, at school in 2005 and in the period between then and now have played hundreds of shows and seen their free self-released album downloaded tens of thousands of times.

As with all these bands, I went in blind, without any preconceptions just knowing that each band would be brilliant because of the killer people that recommended them to me. I’d assumed that these guys had been in a few bands and been around the block a little before finding like minded souls in each other and using their experience to create some seriously voluminous no holds rock. The fact these guys wrote this album while they were teenagers is insane and even if you’re aware of it, it’s easy to forget.

They’re certainly in the vein of Sharks and Twin Atlantic with the almost prescient cultivation of a musical hook with acutely accurate guitars and, while Math Rock could easily have been the path they’d chosen they thankfully stay away while retaining the more intelligent aspects of that genre and bringing an untold smash of other influences together to create something significant.

A huge thanks to SayHiToHannah for the recommendation, the first of many.

Take me to the wall

Get the album
