BASSIST & GUITARIST WANTED
IG: @kingvenusmusic <– See/hear what we do
For Gigging 20+ originals.
Like A Perfect Circle, Deftones, Placebo, Nine Inch Nails, The Cure, Smashing Pumpkins, Tool.
Current line-up is one multi-instrumentalist/singer (ex-sound guy) & one drummer.
In Central London.
A handful of the songs were trialled live and elicited a favourable response, viz.:
"Pokes around the darker and harder corners of A Perfect Circle and The Cure, with a hint of Placebo."
"Progressive Tool-like rock with an ethereal darkwave spin."
"Dark, atmospheric, emotional; She Wants Revenge meets The Cure."
"Like experimental Nine Inch Nails with a dash of Placebo and A Perfect Circle/Tool vocals."
WHAT TO EXPECT
The music is concept-based and there's a clear auterial vision, ergo I'm looking for musicians who are both comfortable with direction and wanting to create an evocative atmosphere live.
Guitar: The songs have existing rhythm lines to be learned and played. Creativity and musicality with pedals and tone is desirable.
Bass: Some songs have particular bass lines, others it's more a case of playing along and finding what feels right.
Both Bassist and Guitarist should be happy and able to play low, via drop-tuning, pedals, or dedicated instruments – I use 7-string and 30" baritone guitars in addition to drop-tuned 6-strings, and 5-string bass.
Tracking drums is underway for a handful of songs. Next up, I'll be tracking other instruments and vocals using my own home-studio and equipment. With a full line-up, we'll be rehearsing as a group and playing some low-key gigs to work out how best to take the pieces live.
What does success look like?
– Everyone gets along well. Life's too short.
– The group is tight and concerned with the detail and the drama in the music.
– Audiences are moved in the public setting.
– Recordings move the listener in the private setting.
– A congruent artistic style and direction across media.
It's all very Art for Art's sake ;).
