NOTEWORTHY 15: CinemaChords Meets BANDIT

We’re back again to ease you into the week ahead with CinemaChords’ “Noteworthy”, our weekly series of video interviews with bands and musicians who we’re confident will be making huge strides in the coming months. For Episode #15 it’s our pleasure to welcome lively Liverpool-based indie-rockers Bandit.

Starting life at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, Bandit’s founding members Nat Waters, Evan Tate, Josh Pears and Baz Forsythe had always had a clear plan as to what sound they wanted to strive for. Leaning heavily on the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, The Strokes, Fontaines D.C., and Cage the Elephant, they feel their repertoire is a ‘greatest hits of sorts’ of British and American indie-rock. Hailing from Preston and Yorkshire but settling down in Liverpool, the band found a way to release their small-town frustrations as unapologetic anthems brimming with rousing refrains picked out of frontman Nat Waters’ notebook.

Holding the title as one of the UK’s ‘Hot New Bands’ on Spotify, the quartet’s recently released debut EP, “Here’s To Being Alive,” is a “brash tale of nights out, the journey of being in love, and the celebration of life’s experiences.”

To celebrate the recent release of “Here’s To Being Alive,” CinemaChords’ Howard Gorman caught up with the band’s frontman, Nat Waters who discussed mixing his passion for poetry into the band’s unique sound and what it’s been like getting back onto the live circuit post-Covid with a new catalogue of tracks they hadn’t played in front of audiences before.

Keep up with Bandit on SpotifyInstagramFacebookYouTube, and Twitter.
