We are THE GLAVINS! Carl Stott (Vox & Acoustic Guitar), Mark Khaladj Oates (Lead Guitar & Backing Vox), Joe Birkbeck (Bass & Backing Vox) and Sameer Butt (Percussion) and formed in Barnsley, South Yorkshire (UK) in 2008.
We create catchy melodic Indie music; our bright uplifting sound puts you on a high. We are a band that have a unique guitar based sound that can go from modern pop/rock to 60s psychedelia in the blink of an eye. Shimmering guitars, melodic vocals, bouncing walking bass lines all tied together with a pumping solid beat!
We aren’t just big on the local scene: we’re playing Live In Barnsley and Tramlines festivals in 2013 alone, but have also previously played alongside signed artists including The Sunshine Underground, Dodgy, Chris Helme (The Seahorses) and John Power (The La’s and Cast).
We’ve also been played numerous times this year on national BBC radio in the UK – proving just how exciting and enticing our sound is.
