Salford’s latest musical export, groan room, are releasing their debut single recorded in March 2020 at the iconic Abbey Road Studios.

The band was formed in 2019 by two friends working at an independent record label in Salford. Having played in bands around the North West for many years, the two quickly plugged in other musicians & mates to complete the line-up and start receiving noise complaints.

The cacophonous single, get off, takes centre stage as the ep’s lead single and the band’s first foray into the headphones & hearts of indie lovers.

Songwriter, Ramin Bostan, describes the single as a “huge, anthemic tribute to our favourite Brit-pop, lo-fi and grunge bands from the 90s. The song is written about a very dear friend of mine who was going through a tough time and I was imploring him to open up to us and address it, while also reminding him all of the things that make him wonderful and all of the people who love him.”

Fuzzy, unapologetic and dynamically varied, the band’s sound is a nod towards 90s stalwarts including Pixies, Blur, Radiohead and Nirvana, rolled up with the slacker-vibes of Pavement and the lo-fi, garage-rock sensibilities of The Strokes or Yuck.

More live dates and releases are in the pipeline, as the band look towards their next show in Liverpool on 02nd October 2020 with Merseyside favourites, COW and By The Sea.
