One reliably lyrical singer songwriter of advancing years (twenty is quite old is it not?) and limited musicality, seeks likeminded musicians (a drummer, a bassist, a pianist and a guitarist), to form a band overtly influenced by the following:
Jacques Brel, The Divine Comedy, REM, The Smiths, Scott Walker, Crowded House, U2, New Order, Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, The Frames, Split Enz, Gavin Friday, Burt Bacharach, David Bowie…
Also note that sexual ambiguity and theatricality is to be encouraged.
So that’d be fervently baroque folk pop with a healthy dose of jangle infused new wave nonsense. Nevertheless, in this enterprise the song is the king. Genres are malleable, and as such, this could be the best band ever, to well, currently not exist.

If a band with a similar approach is currently requiring a vocalist, and or, songwriter, get in touch, as it’d save me a lot of bother. String section if possible.
