Projekt release debut single

Projekt release their debut single Compass on May 4th.

Projekt are a 4-piece rocknroll band based in London. Hailing from four corners of the UK, the band came together through fateful paths in London. They quickly started writing and creating the Projekt sound and soon had enough material to perform their first gig in Jan 2009 at Tommy Flynn’s, Camden.

Little did the band know that word would spread amongst the live circuit so quickly and they would end up performing 50 shows all over the country. Venues included O2 Islington Academy, Monto Water Rats, Proud Galleries, The Dublin Castle, 93 Feet East and the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool.

A successful debut year for the band saw their track ‘Desert Storm’ being named as track of the week on the BBC Introducing London show, ‘London Calling’. The bandwagon continued with the release of their first single, ‘Ocean Passage’, which was made available on Tourdates as a free download. This entered the Tourdates Unsigned chart at number 11 and after a steady 3 week climb hit the number 1 spot; at the time of writing it still sits on top of the chart.

The band show no signs of sitting on their laurels in 2010 with the planned release of ‘The Compass’ on May 4th produced by Paul Tipler (The Charlatans and Idlewild) and a huge number of live shows including –
Apr 8 – Walkabout, Reading

Projekt write songs created from long jams in the practice room, each member contributing to the sound. The first batch of songs all have a recurring theme of travelling and getting to where you need and want to be. This is evident with the navigational theme in ‘Ocean Passage’, ‘Desert Storm’ and now ‘The Compass.’ Frontman Rob Powell says: ‘I think all great albums sound like a family of songs. Not necessarily all sounding the same musically but all having some kind of link, some kind of cement that bonds them together. This is where the messages of compasses and maps crop up throughout the Projekt sound. We want to take people on a journey and I think our songs can do that judging by the reaction so far.’

As a ‘live act’ Projekt like to get hot and sweaty and do it all with a smile on their face! A dazzling array of influences and energy combine to produce a spiralling high-octane live show leaving the audience in a spin. Let’s hope ‘The Compass’ can show them the right way.
