Around Town Q&A

Your name: 
Lawrence Bray.

Where are you from? 
Bromley, UK.

Name of band: 
Around Town.

Who else is in your band? 
Liam on bass, Matt on lead and Oli on Drums. I play rhythm.

How would you describe yourselves? 
Fun, outgoing, full of energy but at the same time keeping it cool.

Who are your main influences musically? 
Think Beatles, Oasis, Stereophonics - Think MOD/Britpop. We're flying the flag for British guitar based music. It's the interaction of the four of us jamming and coming up with new songs and a vision of using old school recording techniques using vintage equipment to get that organic vibe 

What do you hope to achieve in music? 
Everything our idols did.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why? 
Well it’s pretty special being played on BBC Radio. We’ve been played three times by Gary Crowley, who we have a lot of respect for as he was one of the forerunning DJs for Britpop alongside Jo Whiley so it’s always great to hear him introducing our song.

And what’s the moment you want to forget? 
Haha I don’t think we have any yet…maybe failing to get hold of one of the dancers in our video which is soon to be released haha.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why? 
Well at the moment we only have one song out at the moment so I guess it’ll have to be ‘Out of Control’…regardless of any others we may know about that aren’t out yet ‘Out of Control’ is still a tune!!  We've just finished the follow up called "15 seconds of fame" which is all about the reality TV, X Factor ethos of here today, gone tomorrow success. We are looking at playing the long game. Other tracks we're working on towards an album include Shangri La and Rock Chick

Where can we listen to it? 

Where can we find out more about your music?
Here's our social media links

Anything else you’d like to say that I forgot to ask? 
Well this my chance to re-plug the current song… you can now buy ‘Out of Control’ on Pre – Order from iTunes …anything else…well Out of Control has been chosen for a new film coming out called House of Manson - here's the trailer link -
