WHAT THE BAND SAY:
DP!: How would you describe yourselves to someone who has never heard Lost In Stereo before?
Lost In Stereo: We’re a bit like all the pop punk bands you’ve heard of blended in to one with a twist. We don’t have as much angst or scratchiness as some other bands might have, given Ellis’s unique voice, but we still try to have catchy hooks and big pop choruses. Some people say we have songs that sound like Blink-182, some say we sound like panic at the disco so we like to think there’s something for everyone.
DP!: How did the band form?
Lost In Stereo: Andrew grew up with Ellis and began writing songs when they were teenagers and then when he went to uni he met Jon in student halls. We discovered the three of us had a similar music taste and all wanted to pursue being in a band so we gave it a bash for a while and wrote some more songs before being introduced to Dean through a friend at the studio. Instantly hit it off, just like in all good rom-coms and we haven’t looked back since.
DP!:What plans do you have for the future?
Lost In Stereo: We are playing the o2 academy supporting Reel Big Fish and Anti Flag as part of the Fireball, Fuelling the Fire Tour. This is a venue we’ve all grown up seeing our favourite bands in, and another level to any we’ve played before so we can’t describe how buzzing we are for that, a little nervous too of course. We just want to keep pushing the EP out there and hopefully get a tour or something sorted for the end of the year and we intend on being back in the studio soon with new material as well.
DP!:Which new bands are you listening to right now?
Lost In Stereo: Stand Atlantic are a 3 piece from Australia that we’re really getting into at the minute. It’s just classic catchy pop punk and the singer has some set of lungs on her. It feels like they’re partly filling the hole that paramore sort of left now they’ve changed their sound so much.
DP!:Which bands do you aspire to and why?
Lost In Stereo: Growing up, we all got into pop punk through Blink-182, Good Charlotte, All Time Low, A Day To Remember, My Chemical Romance etc and if we can be anything close to those bands, we can say it’s been a successful journey. The energy and fun they have on and off stage is insane and we can’t see how that could be beaten by doing any other job. The recent resurgence of most of these bands has only made us want to do this more for sure.
DP!:What’s the stand out moment in your career so far?
Lost In Stereo: Finally getting our EP out and hearing all the crazy positive feedback has been pretty damn awesome. We’ve been fortunate enough to play some pretty big gigs (for a band you’ve never heard of) already and we’ve started to see people follow us as a band who come to gigs and sing along to songs we’ve written and things. That’s pretty insane to us. We reckon once we’ve played the O2 academy, that it will take first place on our stand out moments list but up till now it’s been the support and love we’ve received for the music we’ve released so far and any headline gig we have played we have loved.
