"Music Week London"

Matthew Joseph Harper (Bass)
Michael David Rainsford (Vocals/Guitar)
Paul James Tandy (Lead Vocals/Guitar)
Thomas Ronald Weston (Drums)

Raised on rock, the most exciting new band to hit the Brum live music scene for some time are four enigmatic young lads that go under the name of Octane OK. Formed in Birmingham in 2007, Octane OK - Mat (bass), Michael (vox/guitar), Paul (lead vox/guitar) and Tom (drums) - have an enormous, youthful zest for life that comes out directly through their music, whereas other contemporaries can only look on with sheer envy. An exciting, uplifting atmosphere is created when Octane OK take to the stage where their music really comes to life – a potent, glorious mix of melody and craftsmanship. They could be described as the missing link between Nickelback and McFly.
From steadily building up a robust following in their home city, the quartet also have their sights firmly set on areas further afield. They have just returned from playing in Hamburg with other bands from Italy and Germany. Whilst they were subject of an exciting photo shoot with celebrity photographer Marco Maas.
The band has just announced two London shows at The Water Rats and Camden Barfly in December. They start their first full UK tour in February hitting London, Cambridge, Newcastle, Bournemouth, Sheffield and more shows in Birmingham.
It sure is exciting times for Octane OK, Lost Prophets producer Danny Sprigg is to record their debut single Take Take and there will be a video unveiled at prestigious music festival Midem in January 2010. The band is featured in A&R Magazine in Australia (the all important Midem issue) and an album will follow later in the year.
This band is going places, which is just as well seeing as their manager Martyn Baylay is well connected with the BMI airline…

Bio

Octane Ok are a fresh and exciting expression of energy. Our enthusiasm and hard work is reflected through the music that we’ve produced. An uplifting atmosphere is created we take to the stage and our music is energetic, diverse and memorable.

Octane Ok consists of four members:

Paul on lead vocals and guitar.
Mikey on guitar and backing vocals.
Tom on drums.
Matt on bass and backing vocals.

Our influences are Paramore, All Time Low, Boys Like Girls, Fall Out Boy, Jimmy Eat World, and the Brits, Kids In Glass Houses and You Me At Six.

What sets us apart from the rest is our original CATCHY SONGS, ENERGETIC LIVE SHOWS, GREAT STAGE PRESENCE and a BRITISH SENSE OF HUMOUR!

Been together for almost a year, in that time we have built up a large UK fan base. We have recently played in GERMANY which was amazing and we have gigs already lined up in FRANCE, SPAIN, CZECH REBUBLIC and others in the pipe line.
