We’re very pleased to announce that we have the awesome Empress playing for us on November 22nd at The Maze. Tickets will be just £4.
It took a moment of clarity for brothers Ollie (guitars and vocals) and Alex Loring (bass) joined by Edd Unwin (drums) and Tom Meadon (guitars), to realise they’d been making music they never truly loved for years. It was time to start following their instincts 100 per cent. They trusted their music tastes implicitly so decided to ignore the trend and appease their own minds by forming Empress.
Empress have been writing since the start of 2011, honing their style together; quietly and carefully. The result is a sound that belies their young age – all are in their 20s. Soothing and vicious in turn, they juxtapose gentle harmonies with frantic ferocity; relaxed strumming followed by thrashy beats, time signature changes and other interesting meanderings that you’ll just have to find out about for yourself.
