Coming at you from across Yorkshire and predominantly based in York, OLD SELVES channel a collection of stout influences panning from While She Sleeps, Blood Youth and Trivium, through to Lamb of God and Mendehlson. Beginning as a garage band hammering out cover songs with cheap beat up guitars, the fiery youngsters soon realised they could push it out, honing in on their musical values, to create something truly special. During the coronavirus lockdown, the foursome tightened their sound and made a slew of progressive changes. After a glut of intense rehearsals, the northern heavyweights had crafted enough unique material to produce their debut EP.
Now loaded with an enticing debut EP, Two Minds, the ferocious metal crew will stamp their mark on proceedings in 2021. The EP is everything you want from a heavy record: hard-hitting, emotive, riff laden, and absolutely compelling. Vocalist and Guitarist, Felix Manders-Wilde remarks: “‘Two Minds is a story about Old Selves and the minds of the people we share the world with. We strived to make Two Minds be made up of pounding, emotion triggering and straight up head-bang-worthy tunes that evidence the development and growing strength of this band, but also the universal times that we all live in. This is our lockdown gift to you”. With a series of tours and festival appearances in the pipeline for the latter half of 2021, OLD SELVES have arrived.
