Today's Artist Discovery is all about Pop Punk/Alt Rock band Basement League!
The energetically charged quintet blend an array of meaty guitar sounds, tightly locked rhythms and powerfully performed, relatable lyrics - securing their place as one of the finest up and coming Pop Punk/Alt Rock bands the UK has to offer.
It's a very exciting time right now for the group with the release of their brand new single 'Rein Me In' just yesterday. "A perfect choice for Live A Little Louder's Artist Discovery" I hear you say?
Funnily enough, that's exactly what I thought! Clearly great minds work alike eh? And so without further ado, join me as I delve a little deeper and speak to the guys themselves to find out more...
Please describe your sound in just one sentence…
"Big Guitars tones, technically sound instrumentals, harmonic vocals, all in a fun-sized band bundle.
Basement League fuses together the creative minds of Cameron Percival (vocals), Izaak Rushton (backing vocals & rhythm guitar), James Warner (bass), Ryan Phillips (lead guitar) and Nathan Coote (drums).
Drawing on a varied mix of inspiration, the band formed in June 2019 and have been going from strength to strength ever since...
Who, or what, has influenced the sound of the band?
"We are all into different music, genre’s and artists and, especially with this project, we have found that really informs the nuance of our sound. We take inspirations from artists ranging from Trophy Eyes to Mac Miller to Slipknot to Neck Deep and so on. While we enjoy the new wave pop-punk sound, it’s not something we wanted to conform to."
