In 2008 'JKLMNO' were described as the 'ultimate unsigned band' after playing the FIB Benicassim 2008 with the likes of Morrissey and Leonard Cohen. They released a single 'The War Song' with Supajam and gigged around the UK.

Biography

Named after a random row of letters in the alphabet, JKLMNO was formed by best friends Carl Harrison (Vocals/Guitars/Keys), Daniel Pierce (Synths/Percussion), Daniel Kehlenbeck (Guitars/Vocals), Elliot Knox (Bass/Vocals) and Nick Roberts (Drums/Programming). Writing their material in a small youth center situated in North Wales, the band found their own unique sound forged by many influences such as Jeff Buckley, The Flaming Lips and Sigur Ros. The band went to Autumn Road Studios in February 2007 to record their first demo which generated a lot of interest in the Wrexham area, gaining them top slots in some of North Wales' prime music nights and branching out to further success in venues such as The Cavern Club, Liverpool.

On 15th May, JKLMNO self-released their first and only single to date “Locking Doors” on Apples' Itunes. The single had a great reception with the bands fan base and was described by a reviewer as “pulling at your heart-strings from the word go” and “leaving you wanting more”.

With touring under their belts from previous bands JKLMNO plan to spend their summer branching out further in the U.K. following their success in the Supajam 'fast track to FIB festival' competition in which the band won the chance to open up the FIB Festival 2008 on Sunday. Their entry song “The War Song” is to be released soon on Itunes by the competition organizers.
