HUMI are a North London band, drawing influences from Grumio in the Kitchen and Caecilius in the Forum. We've been together since December 2011 and recorded our first 2 demos in January of 2012. We recently released a new track which together with Urban Mess and Join In, is free to download at www.soundcloud.com/humiband
Static Plan is an Alternative Rock/ Electronic band based in Guildford, England. Taking most of their influences from the Rock/ Metal scenes of the early 1990's and producing an appealing mix of "grumbling riffs", "belligerent Guitars" and the "ethereal vocals of Deftones", Static Plan have built a solid reputation for their energetic shows throughout the South of England, by constructing music that is "strikingly unique, yet wholly familiar".
With the release of their debut EP in April 2012, the band are successfully recapturing the atmosphere and creativity of the underground Metal scene of the early 1990's, with a fusion of Alternative Rock, Industrial and Grunge that "rifles and entrances the senses". However, it is Static Plan's commitment to exploring modern technologies and mixing it with their influences that helps them create a sound that it is "constantly intriguing and never predictable."
Static Plan are currently gigging and promoting their recent EP release around the South of England, whilst trying to get as much exposure as possible via radio stations, podcasts and blog reviews. The band are also planning their second release (TBC 2012) and steadily creating original and exclusive material for their loyal fanbase, distributed using their email newsletter and social media websites.
Of Sudanese and Scottish descent, Eliza Shaddad is a writer and performer of arresting ability; blending intricate guitar patters with a stunningly forthright voice. Winding between blues, folk, and jazz she has played across the UK supporting the likes of Michael Chapman, Rue Royale and Finley Quaye, and released her first record in March 2012 to first-rate reviews, blog support and radio support.
As a vocalist and writer with the collective Clean Bandit she has appeared on their EP 'UK Shanty', and subsequently Channel 4, XFM and Radio 1.
