Odder Seas
Odder Seas are a 4 piece indie rock band formed in their adopted hometown Norwich, England in 2015. Shortly after their first demo release 'Take it Back' in August 2015, they played their first gig at Camden Barfly, and since have played mainly in Norwich (supporting the likes of Fickle Friends and Clean Cut Kid), as well as several more gigs in London. Odder Seas have been played regularly on BBC Radio Norfolk and have received support from BBC Introducing, playing live on air in June and at the Lord Mayor's Celebration BBC Introducing Stage in July. Their debut 4 track EP titled 'Limbo' was released on the 7th April on Apple Music and Spotify. The Band are currently now working on new higher production quality material, for release Spring 2018

Gallows Circus
Gallows Circus
Gallows Circus play blues-hearted, dirty, rock - inspired by the likes of; Led Zeppelin, Blackstone Cherry, Free, Reef, and Thin Lizzy. Creating original songs that induce head-nodding and chin-growth! All achieved by way of catchy riffs and vocal melodies, supported by a robust rhythm section that, once combined, will have you singing the songs for weeks after you’ve heard them.

Formed in Kent in the UK in October 2016, Gallows Circus have since worked on the contents of their self-titled, debut E.P. that was released at the end of 2017 to enthusiastic reception and critical acclaim.

Although the band are a newly-formed entity, they are continually adding to thier set of original compositions and have already created the material needed for thier first studio album -which is due for release in 2018

Dear Reader,
I do really not know how to start such biographies. A plane, maybe wonderful story is all I can tell. Because this is how me and my friends found each other, together on frequency 44o, we started communicating through different channels. Well, it’s called music.
First we wanted a room to hang out and you can imagine what that means at the age of 17. We cleaned up grandmas antiques storing room, painted the walls, put a sofa and a PA system in there et voilà, our puberty oasis was born. Cedi and Gabi already played guitar at the time, so eventually I picked up a bass and Jan ordered the cheapest drum kit he could find. With it, our passion for music grew every evening at SEVN o’clock. After those 3 years of philosophizing, writing and partying, we stocked up gear, to share our songs with the world. By playing regular homepartys, outdoor gigs and self organised public events, the band gains live experience. Now, we are not just my brother and cousins anymore, no, we grew together like a real little family. By now the time has come to record our demos in a professional studio. So if we dear reader, caught your attention, do not hesitate to let us know and help us. There is no time.
in Love,
SEVN o’clock
