"Epic stuff, hottest download" The Sunday Times/"Brooding, intense music that knocks spots off much of the competition." The Independent/"One of the capital's hottest properties” drownedinsound/"Everyone should go see them." The Fly/Festivals 2009 included Glastonbury and Summer Sundae Weekender


With their combination of bold, anthemic songwriting and intoxicating wall-of-sound guitar backdrops, The Domino State have an epic, effects laden sound that has as much in common with the energy of post-punk as the current UK shoegaze scene.

The dynamic intensity of their live performances has earned them numerous prestigious support slots including the O2 Arena with Coldplay and tours with M83 and Longview, taking in shows in London, Brighton, Manchester, Dublin, Belfast, Glasgow, Berlin and Hamburg.

Although the band spent much of last year working on their hotly anticipated debut album, they found time to put in hugely successful appearances at several of the UK's major summer festivals, including Glastonbury, Beautiful Days and Summer Sundae Weekender.

The band's third single "Firefly" (popfiction records) was picked up instantly by iTunes and placed on their "what's hot" compilation featuring iTunes's pick of the latest UK releases. It was also that week's "hottest download" in The Sunday Times, who described the single as "epic, doom-laden stuff from this fine London band".

The band's debut album, recorded and produced by Joe Adams at Treacle Studios, East London, is due to be released in May this year.

They have received worldwide airplay, including the UK (BBC6 music, XFM , NME Radio, Kerrang Radio, BFBS Radio), Germany (Radio Fritz, NDR Radio, Motor FM), USA (Britsound Radio), Italy (Radio CittĂ  Aperta), Peru (Kool Rock Radio), and winning Steve Lamacq's BBC6 rebel playlist.
