3 Is A Band




3 Is A Band: Dismissed

The idiom “never judge a book by its cover” proofs once again true, because alone from looking at stylish three-piece Dismissed, one would expect pop, the over-the-top kind maybe. Hold your breath because Dismissed create synths-rock in the vein of maybe fellow trio Placebo or maybe new Brit-rock darlings Wolf[…]

3 Is A Band: Charlie Johns

When I came across Charlie Johns recently, I totally liked what I was listening to, looked at the band photos, listened a bit more and scheduled a 3 Is A Band feature since this band is not only comprised of Charlie Johns (singer, songwriter) but also Daniel Foster (bass) and Kieron[…]

3 Is A Band: Big Bliss

Listening through the Northside Festival 2017 showcasing bands, I didn’t come far at first because… Big Bliss got my full attention and their debut EP “Keep Near” on heavy repeat despite wanting to make it through the entire list of bands. This Brooklyn-based three piece creates incredibly gorgeous shoegazey guitar[…]

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[…]
