“Viscous psychedelic guitars parade as weapons of mass destruction. Frontman Ben Zakotti has hit a sweet spot vocally, nestling in between Tom Meighan and John McClure” - TravellersTunes
Bristol/Cheltenham/South West | Psychedelic/Indie/Rock and Roll
SIRACUSE are a three-piece band from Cheltenham, blending elements of ‘90s Britrock processed through a psychedelic filter. With hints of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Music, and early Oasis, their debut album, Forever, brings a classic rock ’n’ roll approach mixing driving basslines, Jesus and Mary Chainesque guitars, and powerhouse drums. Released at the beginning of the pandemic in May 2020, the LP was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Tower Studios Pershore by producer Dave Draper. The album is a collection of SIRACUSE’s strongest work, following on from 2018’s Control EP which gained support from John Kennedy’s Xposure show on Radio X, BBC Introducing Gloucestershire, and various independent stations in the UK and the US.
The Like-Minded are an original indie rock band from Weston-super-Mare, aged 18-20. The band have enjoyed making a name for themselves playing at venues in Weston, Bristol & the surrounding areas, as well as local festivals and air time on BBC Radio Bristol & BBC Introducing in the South West.
