Union Sound Set

Union Sound Set


"Start/Stop (has) a real punch. The best tracks, such as ‘My Current State’ and ‘Answers’, shimmer and shudder with repressed emotion, alongside the sheets of carefully crafted guitar noise" – Rocksound

“A belter of a record…it will be a shock if Union Sound Set don't set the indie world on fire"
- 4/5 Big Cheese

Union Sound Set's debut album Start/Stop was released to massive critical acclaim, and received a significant amount of airplay, including Fearne Cotton's show on BBC Radio 1 and Xfm's Drivetime Show with Ian Camfield. The band released two singles from their album to much applause - Hiding Places in September 2010, and Cause & Resolve in November of the same year.

Cause & Resolve, had all the makings of an indie dance floor anthem. It combined a strong pulsing rhythm section with reverb soaked guitars, creating a haunting melody beautifully juxtaposed by Edd Simpson's earthy, at times angelic, singing style. I Know", the single's b-side, could very well have stood alone as its own single. A strong backbone of harmonious vocals, guitar and bass leading up to a dirty, overdriven instrumental freak out allowed Union Sound Set to really show off their technical capabilities as musicians.
