Go Tell The Eskimo / Bio

"Go Tell The Eskimo creates totally magical indie pop that will make your ears rejoice" Tobi Lynn 98.7 Los Angeles

Armed with analogue sounds and upbeat indie anthems, GTTE comfortably blend exciting rock & roll elements with a pop-centric demeanour that can only be described as Go Tell The Eskimo! This can be heard throughout their first EP (officially released November 20th 2012). Along with firm local support from the BBC and national Radio the band is catching the attention of audiences across their native UK thanks to their unique brand of eccentric indie rock.

In 2012 the band was signed by Los Angeles based indie label Red Parade Music, owned by music producer Jim Roach. After two months in the studio the team had recorded several songs and was ready to release "Smoke Signals," Go Tell The Eskimos first EP.

"The entire three song EP called "Smoke Signals" is beautifully layered - from gritty garage rock to jangly 60's inspired orchestral pop - these songs will become the soundtrack to your happiest day-dreams!" Tobi Lynn on-air personality 98.7FM in Los Angeles.

Although London based the band's international membership hails from England, Ireland and Chile. Their initial demos were recorded simultaneously on both sides of the Atlantic in a 24 hour cycle between London and California where the songs were constantly kicked around and revised before sending off to their label in Los Angeles.

In October 2012, a month before it's official release their first single 'When Lights Go Out” was listed in Amazing Radio’s Top 15 Tracks for October and Top 5 tracks of the year. In addition iTunes US took note of the band and featured their EP "Smoke Signals" in their "New and Noteworthy" section. In addition they were recently picked out by UK celebrity Mat Horne (Gavin and Stacy) to headline his popular "Mat Horne Presents" sessions at the Queen of Hoxton, heavily promoted by BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe.

The band kicked off the New Year in California with shows across the west coast and to complete the recording of their first full length album "Life Among Wolves" (which is set for a September 2013 release) followed by headlining shows and various tours and festival appearances across the US, UK and Ireland.
