3 Is A Band




3 Is A Band: Demob Happy

Demob Happy are a heavy hitting alt rock three-piece originally from Newcastle and now based in Brighton, England with a gritty, grungy vibe. The band consists of Matt Marcantonio (vocals, bass), Adam Godfrey (guitar, vocals) and Thomas Armstrong (drums, vocals).  After their self-released album “Dead Dreamers”, they are  now debuting their new single “Dead[…]

3 Is A Band: Auction for the Promise Club

Auction for the Promise Club is quite an elaborate band name and sort of hinting of eight or more members, yet this guitar driven indie rock band is only three members strong and hence ideal for a closer look via our #3IsABand feature. Hailing from Cornwall, in the U.K. the trio[…]

3 Is A Band: Seldom Few

No place is too big or too small for like-minded people not finding each other with the intention to create something new and ideally great together. In the case of Seldom Few, three musicians came together on Isles of Lewis, a small island north of Scotland. There is Ali Murray on guitars and lending the trio his[…]

3 Is A Band: Echolust

Listening to Echolust‘s debut album “Veldisa”, it is easy to picture the trio somewhere in London, late 80s, jamming with the likes of Depeche Mode, Sisters of Mercy, Joy Division, or Pet Shop Boys to name a few. The associations are all fine but Echolust are located in sunny California, Long Beach to be[…]

3 Is A Band: Moji & The Midnight Sons

There are a good 220 musicians announced in the line-up for Iceland Airwaves ’16 and I listened to the music of every single act scheduled to play. As it usually is the case with music festivals, they spread out the news over the months and then weeks leading to the festival. So[…]

3 Is A Band: The Federal Empire

There’s not really much to write about The Federal Empire -yet-, with only one track released so far, but it is particularly fun to listen to a cool track several times on repeat and think of all the future tracks this one promises. “I Never Liked Your Friends” is the debut single[…]

3 Is A Band: Saint Slumber

There seems to be no shortage of intriguing three-pieces in and around New York and Saint Slumber (formerly Dawns) are no exception! The trio hails from a small town outside New York City and they are about to release their debut EP “Youth” on November 11. Ahead of the EP, they have released the[…]

3 Is A Band: Bleeker

Bleeker originate from Toronto, Canada and will be soon on tour through the U.K. I recently came across their stunning self-titled debut EP and since they are a trio, they are ideal for my #3IsABand series! Bleeker are comprised of Taylor Perkins (vocals), Cole Perkins (guitars) and Mike Van Dyk (bass) and together they[…]

3 Is A Band: VanLadyLove

VanLadyLove, an electro-pop/rock trio from Provo, UT are going on a tour across the United States and since they also make a stop in New York City, Pianos that is, I was curious how they would sound like, especially since they are three! Turns out Travis Van Hoff (vocals, keys, guitar),[…]

3 Is A Band: FACIAL

Most cool music discoveries have a story, some do not, yet others have a more personal one. The latter is true for FACIAL, a fascinating noise-rock trio from Los Angeles. When I first listened to their debut album “Mistress”, and then on repeat some more, I knew I wanted to write about the band. FACIAL, consisting[…]
