Their musical inspiration comes from a mix of early 80's new wave and the rich sounds of Britpop, nurtured with a mix of the Libertines and the Arctic Monkeys, this 5-piece band has been together just over 18 months and in such little time have been making a large dent in the underground music scene, today's featured Artists are "BACKSPACE"
Their genre is alternative, pop/Rock and though they really do look like fresh faces, don't let that fool you as they deliver well put together melodies with raw, powerful vocals, earning themselves a well deserved place in the "Britpop" category!
The band involves themselves heavily in the Live music scene supporting acts like "The Elephant Trees" at the Wardrobe in Leeds last October. The band find themselves back again this this coming Friday the 8th of February where they will be the main support for "Apollo Junction"
2018 was a busy year for the band, being crowned the winners of the Kirkstall Festive "Battle of the Bands" in July, Backspace also performed at the Music for Youth National Festival, to much critical acclaim in Birmingham.
It was at the back end of the year the group visited Eiger Studios and recorded their first E.P "Boys" which is now available on Spotify.
