ADMISSIONS (Alt/Indie Rock) - Artist Discovery

The spotlight for today's Artist Discovery shines bright on Alt/Indie Rock five piece, ADMISSIONS.

With high energy guitars, seamlessly locked rhythms and a powerfully driven lead vocal, this Essex (UK) based outfit have been going from strength to strength and show absolutely no sign of slowing down anytime soon...

With the group having recently released their latest single 'Cloned' in late April, I thought I'd delve a little deeper to find out more...

Formed in late 2019, ADMISSIONS is the collaborative vision of Chelmsford (Essex, UK) based musicians Kirstie Mcewen (vocals), Rob Jackson (bass), Jack Kendall (guitar), Joe Webb (guitar) and Max Champney (drums).

Having been good friends for many years prior to starting the band, it was only a matter of time before these talented individuals joined forces - fusing their creative minds and musical skills together as one.

With the chemistry already running strong, the indie/alt rock quintet soon began to flesh out their identity as a band - drawing on a wide range of influences and inspiration to define their sound.

Who, or what, inspires the bands sound?

ADMISSIONS influences can be heard in all of their tracks and “Cloned” is no exception. Giving a friendly nod to ‘Queens Of The Stone-age’ and ‘Biffy Clryo’ throughout. Constantly drawing influences from the world of rock mixing in that hard pop hitting chorus the we all crave. The widespread influences within the band are reflected throughout the track, varying from Avenged Sevenfold to Blondie and early Arctic Monkeys.

All of our influences and inspirations are all different and all from different backgrounds. We have a real mixture that comes from various different genres as each band member has their own unique taste. If we were going to name a few inspirations we’d say Blondie, Synyster Gates, Alex Turner, Dave Grohl and Miles Davis. When you listen to the music you can hear how all of those pull together into one.
