Hi, my name is Hunter. I play lead guitar in a band with a frontman Ian and drummer Frank. We started writing original songs in November of 2020 with hopes to soon record an album and gig around Wilmington and nearby towns. We have been rehearsing regularly downtown at our practice space and writing material very quickly but we are at a point where we really need a long term bass player.
We are looking for players who are:
creative, dedicated, receptive to criticism, talented, tasteful, unpretentious
We have a unique sound but share many of the same influences. Some of these influences can be heard in our songs:
Cymbals Eat Guitar, Modest Mouse The Clientele, The Pastels, Built to Spill, Velvet Underground, Television, Neil Young, The Smiths, Richard Hell and The Voidoids, 80s NY Underground scene
You don't have to be a music theory buff but we do expect some degree of expertise and proficiency in your playing. Please have your own rig. Please be prepared to dedicate a day or two each week (typically weekends) to rehearse for a few hours. We aren't stiffs but people with personality problems or substance abuse issues need not respond.
Please reply with an email and a bit about yourself, your interests/influences, perhaps some recordings.
Here is a soundcloud link with rough demos we recorded at our practice space with a portable recorder:
Thanks for looking.
