The Travelling Band

“Honeyed harmonies and reverb-soaked guitars ” - Drowned in Sound

“They produce an inventive brand of guitar-laden cosmic aesthetic and sprinkles of trademark Manchester’s musical
lineage” - Clash

“Their harmonies are tight, guitar picking deft and tunes melodic” - Q Magazine

“It’s all here - passionate yet delicate vocals, deep forceful drumming, jangly guitar, fluctuating strings - everything you could ask for from a song that oozes summer” - The 405

Manchester’s The Travelling Band have announced their forthcoming album, SAILS, due 

25th August 2017 via Sideways Saloon Records/Kartel. The first taste of SAILS
comes in the shape of the single, ‘Into The Water’, which serves as an introduction to a new, more expansive approach from the Manchester five-piece.

Into The Water - The Travelling Band

‘Into the Water’ is an autobiographical transatlantic love song, as Jo explains:
“I wrote it at a time when I was in an long distance, open relationship with a lover who was living in New York while I was in England. It’s a desperate love letter. I was willing to do anything to make it work.”

Focused around the songwriting talents and production skills of Jo Dudderidge and Adam Gorman
and the rhythmic driving force of enigmatic drummer Nick Vaal, The Travelling Band have been quietly honing what Marc Riley described as “Mancunian Americana”. The resulting album mines a rich seam of influences, with key album track ‘Last Night I Dreamt (of Killing You)’ and the grungy ‘Wasted Eyes’ highlighting the band’s love of American indie rock, but still with that Mancunian twist nodding to Elbow and I Am Kloot. ‘Mopping Forwards’ draws on their time spent in East Nashville and the almost Satie-like melancholic ballad ‘Loser’ belies the darker turn that Jo and Adam’s lyrics have taken. SAILS is due 25th August via Sideways Saloon Records/Kartel Music Group and available to pre-order via Music
