“…lush” – The Line Of Best Fit
“A warmth that’s hard to achieve…” – BBC introducing
With their acclaimed debut EP How To Build A Life Raft gaining attention from Mix Mag, The Line of Best Fit and pioneering producer Skream, as well as providing the soundtrack to a TV advertisement campaign, Saturday Night Gym Club return with their second EP The Nowhere Team, to be release on 10th June 2013.
Consisting of Alan Sanderson (vocals, beats/sampler), Conor O’Kane (vocals, piano/synths), Nick Crowe (vocals, bass) and Tom Bounford (violin, synths), SNGC came under the spotlight back in 2011. Having been picked up by BBC Introducing, the band played their second gig at Radio One’s Big Weekend and were featured by Zane Lowe and Huw Stephens, exposing the Anglo-Irish quartet’s sound to the world.
The video for the EP track ‘Terra Firma’ is available to watch via SNGC’s YouTube channel and streaming below.
The Nowhere Team brings greater scope and soulfulness to what has already become an unmistakable signature sound. Fans of M83 and Foals will fall in love with the dream-pop inflections of ‘Honesty’ and ‘The Nowhere Team’. More atmospheric tracks like ‘Suddenly The Feelings Are Ours’ and ‘Terra Firma’ nod to the influence of artists like Apparat demonstrating the bands ability to hold introspective moments with ebbing, interwoven vocals.The band self-produced The Nowhere Team, venturing to factories, train stations and building sites to record and explore a new depth of sound. Combining this with their trademark textures and creative use of guest vocalists they carefully built up layers that they describe as “an electric blanket for the soul”.
With How To Build A Life Raft firmly setting Saturday Night Club as game changers, The Nowhere Team is sure to make 2013 their defining year.
