We happened upon Everyone an Army from Scarborough whilst on tour with Hold Your Horse Is earlier this week, and were immediately pleasantly surprised at the quality of this trio. After all, it’d be fair to say that a bustling and vibrant music scene is not the first thing that springs to mind when you think of the North-East English town.
With some thunderingly deep bassy sounds overlaid by some seriously huge guitar, ‘progressive’ is probably the easiest genre to attribute to the group. It’s not as boring or predictable as many other prog-rock bands that may spring to mind though; Martyn Hughes’ vocals put the icing on the proverbial cake with their beautiful haunting moments on tracks like ‘Pangea’ whilst also managing to make use of the monotone qualities of Ian Curtis elsewhere on the EP. It pulls off the rare feat of being nicely balanced throughout, with enough to keep you interested the whole way through - even on the difficult first listen. Each element fits together like an aural glove. There’s an integrity to the music that’s obvious as soon as it begins. Look a bit below the surface and you find that there’s real intelligence and thought in there.. the EP being recorded in an old art gallery. It’s all very dark and interesting.
With the plan being for the guys to head into the studio again with none other than Justin Lockey of the now-defunct yourcodenameis:milo to record new tracks sometime in the future, you can get a free download of their entire 6 track release here*.

Bio

Having released their debut EP at the tail end of December in 2009, Everyone an Army spent the majority of 2010 rehearsing, writing new material and performing live. On the road, they strengthened their fanbase by hitting a few independent festivals, aswell as the Manchester Hungry Pidgeon Festival and visiting Birmingham (Music Live @ NEC Arena), Leeds, York and Sunderland along the way.

The band were offered the chance to perform with the University of York Jazz Orchestra and are currently on schedual to end their 6 month collaboration at Scarborough's Coastival festival in February 2011.

Bringing 2010 to a close, the band landed themselves in the top 3 short-list for "Best Live Band", coming ahead of competition from around the UK's 'Access to Music' colleges.

The band are now geared up with fresh material and are once again attacking the studio, to unleash new material at gigs and festivals in 2011.
