Our main goal as a band is to make a living from doing something we love. As for five years time we hope to be on album & a World tour.

Kill For Company: alternative Lo-Fi duo from Manchester, UK (E107)

About: Kill For Company

The OurZ: unsigned

When I listen to this music, I feel like I'm standing under the waterfall. Sometimes it's just a trickle whispering to me about something important, but in a moment this stream is being filled with strength and vigor of the whole ocean.
And you can't fight it, this stream picks you up and takes you away to some distant unknown places. But then, suddenly, you find youself standing in the middle of the calm surface of the lake, trying to understand what has just happened to you... And you understand that you have just listened to the eight-songs EP written by two talented musicians, an alternative lo-fi band named Kill For Company, who undoubtedly have put their whole soul into this music!

1. How do you see yourself in 5 years? What is your main goal as a band?
We would like to be one of the UK’s known established band with gigs ranging from the UK’s largest festivals to some of the largest arenas. We would hope to have some national if not international publishing and be able to live off the music rather than having to be a touring band hammering it out night after night.

When I listen to the songs of these undoubtedly talented and charismatic Irish rockers, I keep being amazed how in the times of the mass culture such original, full of energy and drive bands can emerge?

1. How do you see yourself in 5 years? What is your main goal as a band?
In 5 years time, we see ourselves still making the music we love making & still enjoying the close unity we have as a band. If we're still enjoying our music, we will consider ourselves successful

The Design: In Search of Their Own Design

About: The Design

Despite the fact that The Design, a rock band from Raleigh, North Caroline, has existed since 2005, only now, after 7 years and the release of 2 albums, have they found themselves, or in other words, have they finally found their own design. As so often happens in the creative process, what has crystallized differs a lot from the initially declared genre.
