"Straddling the indie pop spectrum over the past 30 years..." Sonic Masala

"Great band. I'll be playing more of this." John Kennedy XFM


Formed in 2011. Concubines is the brainchild of Andy D. The band is essentially a real life attempt to flesh out the term "hypnagogic pop". Influences are varied between songs producing an eclectic live show with a party atmosphere. These influences include; Talking Heads, Toro Y Moi, De La Soul, Hype Williams, the Velvet Underground, Salem, Scott Walker...

Concubines first set of live shows are currently being booked, but already include slots supporting John Peel faves the Nightingales, Thomas Tantrum and shows for indie blog Gold Flake Paint...

Live the band use stunning visuals and mix traditional instrumentation (guitars, bass, drums) with more electronic sampling and synth equipment (mpc 500, roland groovebox, microkorg, drum machines and triggers).

Andy D recruited friends, Sol, Serge, and Andy W to complete the line up- between them the band have played over a thousand gigs and have played in the likes of Load.Click.Shoot! (Vacuous Pop), A Thousand Natural Shocks (PIAS) and Ono Palindromes.

The bands debut EP has been recorded fleshing out their influences and is due for release later in the year...


Vol. 1 due later this year...
