We are Bandicoot are a 5 piece alternative-rock band from Kent, formed in 2013. Their style has been likened to Radiohead, Tame Impala, Pink Floyd and Pond but they draw their influences from a wide variety of artists from Jeff Buckley and Syd Arthur to Lianne La Havas and Erykah Badu.
Founding members Simon and Ant met whilst at college after they bonded over a similar taste in music. The band first started to gain recognition after they released their EP The Peace Formula in January 2014, which was recorded at Old Granary Studios in Kent.
Months of hard gigging and several line-up changes later and the band honed an impressive and powerful live show that caught the attention of local indie label Blizzard Records.
In December 2014 We are Bandicoot signed a one-album deal and their first single Doom was released for free download on 22nd July 2015.
Their 2nd single The Lake was released on 21st September and was played on radio as far afield as Quebec, Canada. They will release their debut album in late 2016.
We are Bandicoot have gigged extensively over the past 2 years in London, Brighton, Southampton and all over in their home county of Kent. They also opened the Psychedelic Smithsonian Stage at Secret Garden Party in 2015.
