Biography

Since late 2007 The Christophers have been creating electronic crossover music, combining the love of beats, vintage synths and machines with layered guitars, cutting bass and monotone vocals which hark to David Byrne, Lou Reed and James Murphy.
The U.K based band have had a succession of single releases which have received international airplay and more recently, the single 'Plans' has been featured on a new U.S film 'I DO'.
They also had their video for their single '7/11' featured on the Manchester music and culture documentary 'Manchester:Beyond Oasis'.
The bands influences stem from not only the music from the likes of Talking heads, XTC, Velvet Underground to Beck but from the very atmosphere these bands create......
...like the first time you went to CBGB's, the first time you saw Kraftwerk in a tiny Liverpool club, the first time you heard of stiff records..........that air of new, fresh and even familiar sounds.
The shifting sands of the music industry over the last decade has meant that digital empowerment & the democratization of music distribution is creating an internet full of white noise.

But those who care to seek out the Christophers will discover a veritable treasure trove of beats & loops & melody.

These musical components have been knitted together to create a cacophony of sound that instantly hits the aural sweet spot of the listener.
