Projectionists - New Music "Introducing"

Facebook

Projectionists, the new project of ex-Pipette Rebecca Stephens is likely to excite fans of the Riot Becki of old, whilst the self-titled debut EP from the Manchester based five piece (which also draws in members from a pedigree of Manc acts) is obviously the work of someone who has grown-up somewhat, the more polished and sophisticated sound of Projectionists should still appeal to those who enjoyed the vitriolic, pure pop of The Pipettes back in the mid 2000's, chances are they've grown up too.

Lead single "I Never Wanted Anything" is a fine introduction, a delicious combination of classic and infectious indie-pop, gloriously bright from the outset it sees twinkling keys, guitar and upbeat drums combine with playful melody and Rebecca's gorgeous, pure vocals that hide heartfelt, beautiful lyrics. It's understandably the lead-off track from the EP and a song you're sure to hear more of once your local radio picks up on it, just perfect for your drive home from work.

The EP is launched with a show at Manchester's Castle Hotel on January 18th - details.
