Hello bass players.
Who are we?
We are Dissolved Girl. A songwriting duo (brother/sister - vocals and guitar) looking for a kick-ass bass player to help record a debut album this year in the studio.
What are the songs like?
Some of the demos are complete on our website: www.dissolved-girl.com. The rest are in production. Principal influences are Radiohead, Massive Attack, film music (particularly Hans Zimmer), Pink Floyd, Oasis and Nirvana (among others).
What’s the goal?
[Now that we’re finally moving past Covid]... to complete the line up (bass and drums), record an album in the studio, and go hell for leather to get playing at festivals. It’s also been a lifelong dream to play on Later with Jools Holland :-) It’s a big aim, but we’re confident in the material and are willing to go hard to make it happen.
We both have a good amount of live playing experience in London for the past few years, but this band is the vehicle for original music and our only focus now. We want to make a success of it, and are aiming to make at least 3 albums. So hopefully you will be with us for some time!
Am I the right fit?
Our main requirements for the right person are:
- Firstly, you really like the songs/sound!
- Someone we really get on with - a cool, nice person;
- A great, tasteful player with a good amount of experience;
- Has financial independence / can rehearse regularly etc. (we find this works best if you have a flexible/part-time job, like us);
- Ambitious and hardworking musically;
- Lives in London or within easy access;
- Likely aged somewhere between 24 and 38;
-If you also have song ideas, that’s cool! We don’t view it as essential as we’re comfortable taking the bulk of the songwriting duties, but new ideas always help;
-Backing vocals - we don’t currently see this is essential but certainly doesn’t hurt to have the option!
- Probably not the right thing for you if you are a session musician/in a few different projects.
I’m interested...what do I need to do?
If you like the sound of all this, then get in touch! All you need to do is record a video of you playing along to one of the demos - Granite State. Please then write us an email and share the video of your playing with the email address in due course, via Dropbox or Google Drive.
We are likely to hold auditions in July/August 2021 (likely held in the Premises, Hackney), depending on the amount of interest.
