6 Machine shortlisted bands - Part 4

Whitesnake once sang Here We Go Again...


Caesura

1. Introduce yourselves
Hello. We are Caesura, i.e. Mossy, Rob, Louis and Ben from Winchester in south England.

2. How would you describe your music to someone who has never previously heard you?
Our music is a bit like a firework. Pretty but explosive.

3. Who are your biggest influences?
We like Jeniferever, Explosions in the Sky, The Appleseed Cast, American Football, Minus the Bear, At the Drive-In and lots more.

4. What’s your career highlight thus far and what have you planned for the rest of 2008?
Supporting Youthmovies and Tired Irie at the Joiners in Southampton was nice, because we got to share a stage with two really vital British bands. This year we’re going to tour the new songs that we’ve just finished writing and hopefully save enough money to record them at some point.

5. Tell us about some other cool up and coming UK artists
Secondmonday share a hometown with us and we love them to pieces. They make really cool modernist rock songs with inventive riffs and fragile vocals. Scientist the Orange Pip are from Plymouth and play hyperactive indie a bit like some of the more quirky Deep Elm bands, which is always a lot of fun. Blakfish are from Sutton Coldfield and somehow manage to play techy punk rock (that isn’t up its own arse) whilst throwing themselves all over the place. I could go on for pages…
