We are Mattie, Becca and Tom - aka The Small Screen Light Show.
We are from Seaham.
We make nice sounds for your ears.
Some people have said lovely things about us, for example:
“Our featured unsigned band of the week - this is excellent. It’s the sort of demo that makes me want to get up on a morning.” Steve Lamacq (BBC Radio One)
“My current favourite tune comes from young duo The Small Screen Light Show… This pair showed enough potential in 2007 to make me think they’ll push on big style in 2008.” James Clarke (BBC Radio Newcastle)
“They knock out a well beefy slab of indie rock with influences along the lines of Biffy Clyro, The Vines and The Cure and execute their feisty tunes with due aplomb.” The Crack
“They strip their heartfelt vagaries of any hint of macho camouflage, letting their stomachs flutter and their tongues get tied… a band capable of celebrating heartbreaking anomie without being over earnest.” Metro
“The Small Screen Light Show’s ethic is fresh and energetic, their tracks possess that effortless charm that becomes a clean palette; they aren’t bogged down by influences or stodged up by simile… It is refreshing to be confronted by a group that openly dares to aspire to such a personal sound.” NARC.
“Another awfully young, awfully good band. They sit somewhere in between that emo-ish indie fightpop sound and eighties poppy Cure-ish indie… I think it’s early days, but I deffo, deffo want to keep an eye on this lot. You should too.” Marsha Shandur (XFM)
“Combining the same influences as Bloc Party’s first album – The Cure’s pop hooks and the geekiness of the likes of XTC – with more contemporary artists like Biffy Clyro, their music is catchy and accessible… insanely impressive for such a young age.” Rock Midgets
“Irate, yet glorious and reminiscent in parts of Seafood and The Smashing Pumpkins, TSSLS could well do big things in the future.” eGigs
