Twitter is a great forum for bands to get their message across, it’s pretty simple really the band randomly follow people, who, are then interested in who’s following them and go to check out the said bands music. In effect it makes every twitter account into a mini A&R man, but here’s the catch – the music has to be good! When it is good people will share it and so the word spreads and before you know it you have a following, all this without the need for an expensive media campaign!
One such band that falls into this category are The Bedroom Hour, who, followed me, I checked them out and the music was good, very good in fact, so good I included one of their tracks in my October playlist – not saying much I know on my humble blog but recognition none the less! And now I’m writing a little post about them which will hopefully encourage a few of you to check them out as well and spread the word.
The Bedroom Hour are a 5 piece from London who create a dark, moody tone with haunting guitar and synths and in lead singer Stuart Drummond have well delivered powerful vocals.
The band are really accessible and happy to chat so rather than me waffle on I’ll let the band do the talking:
Each band member supports a different team! We’ve got Arsenal and Tottenham (that causes problems!) Crystal Palace, West Ham and our singer supports a Scottish team, who I can’t remember, as he has Scottish roots!
The band are currently working on an EP which should be released before Christmas.
Get on these guys before they go big, and you can smugly say “I was into them before everybody else!”
