Electronica/ post-rock/ ambient band The Detour, Manchester-based, Looking for female vox, keys, maybe also strings and/ or other unique sounds to complement existing line-up of guitar, bass and electronic beats/ samples. Influences: Mogwai, Postal Service, Sigur Ros, fu*k Buttons etc.; our music contrasts space and density, organic and electronic and was described in a recent review as “beautiful and multi-layered”. We have a full set ready to gig. Check out http://thedetouruk.bandcamp/ for some sample tracks. Interested? Contact Nick on 07747 306885 or Alex on 07828 231495 for more details.
