I'm looking to work with various musicians in the new year for a band I'm trying to put together. I already have a guitarist and a bassist on board so having a drummer and keyboardist would build a good skeleton for the band but other musicians should feel free to inquire. Be it brass, string, electronic etc. The competence of the musicians isn't something I want to focus on as creativity and enthusiasm come first but if you are skilled at the instrument then that's great.
I have songs written and ready to rehearse and record but need other musicians to help me realise this. It would also be great to collaborate with musicians in the writing on songs. I generally write about male incompetence, white privilege, friendlessness, self-deprecation and the welcoming of the end of humanity. The style can vary from disco/ punk to post-punk (soft, heavy, sad and angry). I won't list a bunch of influential artists but feel free to ask me about interests. You can also ask me to listen to demos I've recorded if the ad interests you and don't hesitate to ask any other questions.
I want the image of the band to be liberal, open, relevant and inclusive so this ad is open to all from the ages of 18-30. Women, POC, LGBTQ+, disabled people. I don't want the band to be restricted to cis, white, hetero men.

Influences are wide and varied. If you're interested then message me and I'll be happy to talk about influences and taste as writing a list of artists doesn't really do anybody any favours.
Members Of Band
There are currently four people on board with the band but we're yet to practice. We can all play guitar, there's some experience on bass and keys and I'd be the vocalist and would perhaps play guitar.
All the songs on the soundcloud link are written, performed and recorded by myself but will hopefully start recording with other members in the new year.
