Albion are the London based six-piece band composed of members Ben on Lead Vocals, Guitar and Harmonica, Bidz on Vocals and Lead Guitar, Hunter on Bass, Jack on Drums, Jake on Vocals and Guitar and Sophie on Keys.
With influences ranging from The Beatles to Red Hot Chilli Peppers, from The Rolling Stones to Ludovico Einaudi, each set list and live show from this band is always an eclectic mix of music. They cite themselves as sounding like The Pogues shaken up with a bit of Oasis, with a side of The Velvet Underground.
Formed in 2021 and having released a string of singles to date to include ‘Millenial Me’ and ‘Capital’, in 2021 ‘No One Said’, ‘I Who Never Turned Back’, ‘Everything As Easy’, ‘Roundabout Ruse’ and ‘Silhouette Of Me’ in 2022 and the 2023 releases of ‘Nothing Matters’ (April), ‘Wonderfully Human’ (May) and ‘Nothing New Under The Sun’ (June) and ‘Amy’ on the 8th September, the band are now gearing up for the release of their debut EP, ‘The Rooms Where Songs Are Made’.
Available now, the EP comprises four original tracks, three previously unheard plus the recently released track of ‘Amy’.
The title for the EP; ‘The Rooms Where Songs Are Made’ is actually a lyric from the lead track om the EP ‘Amy’; ‘It’s so fitting as you’re writing in the rooms where songs are made’, and it quite simply refers to a flat on the 13th floor of a tower block in Camden. This is where (in 2015) Albion was formed and where a lot of the initial concepts for the tracks on the EP were conceived. It’s a place very dear to the band's hearts and so felt like the perfect name for this collection of songs.
The EP was recorded at The Libertines HQ - The Albion Rooms in Margate, with award winning sound engineer Jason Stafford (The Libertines/Trampolene/Jamie T) and was mastered by Graham Waller.
