OMG / Sometimes (LTW02)

by Raised on Replicas

supported by


Raised On Replicas are two boys and two girls from Brighton who deal a discordant pop/noise that is full of the joys of hypnotic loud guitars, driving bass and really fab metronomic, motornik drums that are entwined with sharp melodies and hip, witty cutting lyrics.

Somehow they manage to surf the possibilities of noise and tunefulness all at once and soundtrack the bedsit bohemian twilight zone of early 21st century UK. With their innate charm and their wired melodies they are pop, a real pop of the everyday cranked through a fuzzbox and brimming with the joy of guitars and intelligence.

They are in love with the likes likes of Pavement, Pixies, Blur, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Sonic Youth and whilst they have some of that American scuzz to their sound there is something very British about them.

They look great as well, a mix of Oxfam chic and ballroom glam and are steeped in music culture and their band name, like their music, is really hip, funny and cool. - JOHN ROBB

There's so much great music out there that we decided we had to release some of it. We will be eclectic, there are no boundaries to taste & we operate purely on instinct.

Everything comes on 7 inch vinyl (because that's the ultimate pop artefact) & downloads (because we live in the 21st century & like to carry around a million songs in our pockets & that would be tricky if it was all vinyl).
