Projector stand out from the crowd in a way that's rarely genuinely seen, and should be valued.
The EP, titled How Does It Feel, encapsulates the band's intentions. It's brave, dischordant, eerie and full-fat. The vocals are defiant, the guitars twist within their patterns and the songwriting is at once timeless and still representative of the modern post-punk space-grunge permeating through bands across the country.
Unique, but familiar; they write absolute tear-your-hair-out bangers and then contort them into electrifying live performances and dark, sticky melodies.
RAW MEAT: Tell us about your local music scene; what’s your favourite local venue, are there any record labels or stores that we should look up, what’s the scene like where you're from?
Demelza: Brighton is amazing. Always thriving musically and bands seem to leap frog to bigger things from here. Resident Records is great. It’s in the North Laines. Labels you should check out... Roadkill Records of course 😉
Lucy: Brighton Electric where we rehearse is a little community in itself. They've had some legendary parties.
Name one track or band that you love from the past.
Demelza: The Pixies - Tame.
Lucy: Ode to Joy by Ludvig Van Beethoven.
Name one track or band that you're loving right now.
Demelza: Bodega - 'Jack In Titanic'
Lucy: 'Suspiria' - Thom Yorke & Spacewoman - The Breeders
Name one track or band that you think we should be listening out for in the future.
Demelza: Boy Azooga
Lucy: Murmur, DITZ, Libra Libra
What are you up to now?
Demelza: Getting ready for our two biggest Brighton and London shows. We’ve just come off the back of a Pixies Halloween set supporting Tigercub so currently we only know Pixies songs…
What can we expect from you next?
Demelza: More tunes, more shows, more zines.
Lucy: Also special secret things.
