EDITSELECT / Bio

EDITSELECT are an unsigned 4 piece alternative/Indie band from South East London.

According to indie tastemaker and XFM DJ John Kennedy ,"They're rather good", and who are we to disagree, especially when EDITSELECT make such a habit of producing ingeniously catchy and inspiring tracks with classic-sounding titles like "Lungs", "Our Love Is Tropical" and "Palm" (all available to hear on their own website:http://www.editselect.co.uk/ or on their facebook page:http://www.facebook.com/editselect)
Judging by their emotive lyrical perspective, the shifting tempos and structural games within some of their songs, and the crackle of raw excitement discernible at their gigs, it's clear that they have perfected their own definable formula and intend to lead the pack rather than follow.

EDITSELECT are a band that take pride in putting on powerful and memorable live shows and somehow manage to make it seem pretty effortless and fun at the same time.

They've played at EUROSONIC Groningen 2013, Brownstock 2013 (Mark Ronson, Tom Odell), Brownstock 2012 (Futureheads, Labrynth, Badly Drawn Boy), Strawberry Fields 2012 (The Charlatans, Labrynth), Guilfest 2009 (alongside Motorhead, Happy Mondays, Athlete, You Me At Six), the 30,000 strong Peoples Day Festival in 2009, 2010 and 2011, and at after show parties for Franz Ferdinand, The Maccabees and Bombay Bicycle Club. They've also played support slots for the likes of Art Brut, The Holloways, Towers of London and Toploader on their most recent tours. The band have picked up recommendations from City Showcase, Redstripe Music Awards, The Fly and The Roundhouse.

In 2012 they teamed up with FHM and Avril Lavigne to promote her ten years in the industry... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbzang9eVaU

They have toured the Netherlands several times in the past few years and ventured into Germany on their last tour in September 2013. Recent performances at Molotow, The Sugar Factory, Bitterzoet, IndigO2, Scala and Barfly have further established that this group are all about introducing new music; they are always evolving and expanding their set with new sounds.

EDITSELECT are a group firmly embedded into the live scene - frontman Matt Stolworthy has even established their own night called ToeJam (held at venues such as the New Cross Inn, Bussey Building, Goldsmiths SU, Proud Camden, Amersham Arms and Deptford Arms), helping to promote the newest local talent on an accessible platform.

The band are currently working on a series of single releases for 2013.
