Over the past year I joined a band in Leeds called Sawsound who have been gigging and sharing their music across much of Leeds and beyond. In September we decided to record our first album together to share our music with our fans and to show people that we're a bit different to other bands. We have played with some fantastic bands and are currently planning gigs for the new year.

There has been mention of a tour with our very good friends Secret  Cinema and we're looking forward to working with them again in the new year. We also are hoping that Zeno will be able to come along with us too as they are a fantastic band from Leeds. We have also been given the fantastic opportunity to play live on the BBC Introducing which will be going out in early January so keep your eyes and ears out for that.

Please feel free to download our album for free and share it with your friends. There are CD digipacks available for purchase but even if you just listen to the album we will be grateful! :D

You can check out the Sawsound website at where there is more information about upcoming gigs and news.

Our recent live review from Leeds Music Scene - 
"As Sawsound take to the stage later on, I take a note of the presence of both acoustic guitar and violin in their line up and prepare myself for another set of mellow folkestry. My pre-conception is quickly and radically shattered as the band (celebrating the release of their album 'We Have It All') accelerate into a performance tinged with everything from proto-Tool guitar heroics to Celtic vocal harmonies and string lines. The angular guitar playing of front man Simon Whitton and frequently shifting tempos and time signatures are contrasted throughout by the unity of his powerful vocal performance and the playing of violinist Tori Campbell, creating a compelling, occasionally baffling tapestry of genres that threatens to collapse frequently into barely organized noise in a way that is most thrilling. The only thing consistent about Sawsound is how interesting and exciting they are to listen to; I can't help thinking that they'd be great gigging companions for fellow Leeds rock monsters 'Buffalo Bones'. 'We Have it All' might just be the most accurate album title I've heard in quite some time."
