Guitar player or bassist needed for Belfast based alt/indie rock band.
Current line up is a guitarist, bassist and drummer.
I guess I would describe our sound as power poppy indie rock, with textured guitar parts ala modest mouse. Our songs are (hopefully) catchy, without trying to be anthemic.
Influences include weezer, pavement, grandaddy, the pixies, surfer blood, big star, Elliott smith, guided by voices, smashing pumpkins, qotsa, modest mouse, the flaming lips, beach boys, neutral milk hotel, the unicorns, car seat headrest (I could name other bands I like all day but i should probably just stop here.)
Guitar players should be used to playing in a more fragmented, textured style, rather than using power chords all the time, as well as being a capable lead player. Most importantly of all, you must be able to learn by ear. If you have effects pedals, that's great as well!
Ideally you should be able to sing harmonies also possibly even lead vocals (I've got them covered for now).
We have a lot material ready to play but if you want contribute your own songs/riffs/ideas as well that's cool too, preferable even!
Male or females welcome to try out!
Any other instrumentalists are also welcome to respond to this ad.
Current age group is 27-31
