Taking their musical cues from delta blues, surf rock, shoegaze and the expansive sounds of Phil Spector, the Greeting Committee have already crafted an audacious stock of spellbinding tunes that places them as one of the UK's most exciting and abrasive emerging acts.
Co-produced with Little Comets' Matt Hall, The Greeting Committee's debut single Show Me The Lights Of Home was released in 2012 via End Of The Trail Records to critical acclaim and TGC will now focus their attention on releasing their follow up EP this winter on Push Puzzle Records.
The band effortlessly recalls the fuzz-soaked narcotic output of artists including The Byrds, early Verve, The Brian Jonestown Massacre and Spiritualized, and have managed to draw early praise from such Rock 'n' Roll luminaries including Anton Newcombe of BJM, Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh and the award winning music journalist John Robb.
“This band brings a tidal wave of brutal noise, drawn from a lifetime of being misled by twisted women, urban frustration and empty promises. I’m excited to see where this one will go.” NME
“The Greeting Committee produce a gargantuan blast of noise, a concoction of sounds that manages to be both affecting and tooth-tremblingly huge.” Juan King, The FLY.
Following the release of their debut single, the band completed their first UK headlining tour and the band opened the main Stage of Sunderland's Split Festival after a personal invite from Ross Millard of The Futureheads and headed the bill at Oxjam Festival's Newcastle takeover.
Having now signed to Newcastle's own Push Puzzle Records, the band will follow up their debut release with the EP, 'Island,' on 18th November 2013 and a UK tour in the early stages of 2014. Island will be available on all good digital stockists including iTunes, Amazon and Play.
