Beyond the music; it was the stories, decadence and the Boeing 720 Starship that left them dreaming up their own particular modern day musical adventure. Now with a gentle swagger from being free to create their own craft, Channel Cairo have honed a delicate blend of dreamy piano led melodies fronted with ethereal vocal techniques sitting over drummer James Gardiner’s propulsive looping beat style. Luke Saunders a youthful French teenager made the perfect accompaniment joining the group later in 2011 with his surf guitar lines that come with an unhinged quality, giving a dangerous sense of foreboding to Josh Bowyer’s trademark lackadaisical vocal delivery. The group was later completed that year when Lee Matthews joined on bass, instantly shadowing the infectious rhythms to complete their trademark ambient dream pop sound. In Spring 2012 the band plan to release their second single entitled A YEAR, the stunning follow up to the bands debut offering in 2011 of Elephant Room - an exquisite piano-led track which paid homage to their early simpler roots in being the first track that the band played together. Following on from the success of Elephant Room, which garnered praise from BBC6 Music, FakeDiY, The Sunday Times and Music Week, A Year beckons on closer listen the spectre of a melancholic song inspired through personal loss. Yet it is the song’s infectious melody and stirring chorus that commands closure leaving its tone uplifting and unique with every listen. It is this paradoxical quality that will see A Year just as easily fill headphones as dancefloors and reaffirm Channel Cairo as a understated British talent to watch out for in 2012. http://www.channelcairo.com http://www.facebook.com/channelcairo mgmt: firstname.lastname@example.org booking: email@example.com Read more on Last.fm.
