Halfway to New York ♥
Based in London and made up of Sam Burkey (vocals), Ross O'Reilly (guitar), Scott de Jongh (guitar), Daniel Mount (bass) & Martin Griffith (drums) - Halfway to New York are definitely my new favourite band.
When someone recommends me music, I'm pretty wary. My taste in music is so varied and it changes more often than you could ever imagine. People think they have my music taste down and then it changes.
But when a singer recommends music. I don't take a second to think about it. Especially when that singer is the second most listened to on my last fm.
They have a sound similar to Stereophonics and Snow Patrol and are now one of the rare, few reasons I actually go onto myspace.
I honestly cannot wait for them to officially release their songs - so I can clog my itunes & last fm up with their name - until then, you can find me listening to them on myspace... and stalking them on Facebook. (I'm kidding about the last part... sort of)
You should definitely give them a listen, particularly if you like the sort of music that the two bands I mentioned above play.
