Gravity Wins Again is: Gareth Allison - vocals, guitar Nicholas Smal - drums, vocals Andrew Maunder - bass Even the biggest bands in the world had to start somewhere small. For rock/punk trio Gravity Wins Again, it's been a longer and more winding process than most, but one thing is for sure: it's finally paying off. From humble beginnings in a bedroom in the small coastal town of East London in South Africa to the bright lights of Cape Town and stages all over the country, it's been onward and upward for this three piece band, consisting of Gareth Allison (vocals, guitar), Nicholas Smal (drums, vocals) and Andrew Maunder (bass, beard). Starting out as a solo acoustic act and releasing the debut CD, "The Lesser of Two Evils' in 2006, founder member Gareth Allison realised that after playing as many shows as possible he wanted to turn his project into a fully fledged rock band. A move to the city of Cape Town and few emails to his friends Nicholas and Drew, and a new and improved GWA emerged and quickly started to turn heads with their blazing guitars, brutally precise drumming, and melodies that camped in concertgoer’s brains for days.

A band that isn't shy to hit the road, GWA have undertaken many tours all over South Africa since 2006, visiting most of the nine provinces the country holds, sharing the stage with some of SA's biggest name rock bands along the way. Shows with Prime Circle, The Finkelstiens, Evolver One, Harris Tweed (now known as Dear Reader), Cassette, Straatligkinders, Versus The Wolf, Dance, You're On Fire, Crossingpoint and Tonight We Die have not only blossomed into friendships, but also a chance for the band to showcase themselves to fans of different genres (folk, hardcore and even metal) that may not have seen them play before. Interestingly enough, it's the live stage where this trio really hit their stride. Whereas earlier shows were more subdued, experience now shows a band fully comfortable in their own skin under the bright lights of both big and small stages, successfully involving audiences in a way that not many bands can in the local scene. Their scorching live show is anchored by an energetic performance mixed with witty banter between the band members that would put many stand-up comics to shame. "When we play live, we are very conscious of making sure the audience is entertained", explains Gareth Allison.

"If we just played the songs for an hour without engaging the crowd and making them dance as well as laugh, then they may as well just go home and listen to the CD. Live shows are all about the energy and the interplay between us and the people who have paid good money to see us perform." With their single "Bail Me Out burning up campus stations and satellite TV channels and a new EP (and singles) to come, the future is looking brighter than ever for these three young men from the Southern tip of Africa. Make sure you get in on the ground floor while you still can. Read more on Last.fm.
