I'm a 27 yr old male, I've been writing and playing for a long time. I'm trying to put a band together from scratch for the first time, in the past I've just joined pre-existing arrangements. I'm trying to put together an EP of about 4 or 5 solid tunes right now, demoing things out at home. I need help with lyrics and vocals and would like to get a band together for live shows.
Anyone who ends up on board the final line up will ultimately be involved in the writing process going forward. I'm not sure what role I honestly want to end up playing in the band, probably rhythm guitar and back up vocals. I don't like my own voice enough to front.
I'm already in talks with a guitarist, so I'm looking for:
- a drummer
- a bass player
- a keyboard/synth player
- a frontman/woman
The sound so far seems to be 80s teen movie inspired, not sure how else to put it. It's definitely got a lot of pop sensibility, straight beats and chord progressions, nothing fancy, solid drums with plenty of synth filling in the space, guitars kind of float along on top. If you're interested, hit me up and I'll send you one of the songs to see if you can dig it.
For what it's worth, I guess the sound is kind of similar to The 1975 and Taylor Swift's 1989 album, but I don't want to put anyone off, my tunes have their own thing going on.
