Besides being one of the creators of the latest internet sensation The Milk Guy, Jordan Fish is more likely known as the member of Proxies. I`m sharing this information with you because, I was laughing on the Milk Guy thing all day and the internet is pretty cool sometimes. That`s the reason I checked out the music and gave me the inspiration to include the band to the Emerging Talent Month.
Proxies is formed by Joseph Todd (vocals, guitar), Jordan Fish (keyboard, bass, vocal) and Alex Binnigton (drums) in late 2010 in England; Greg T. Brown on keyboard as live member and Alex James Partington on guitar+vocals joined them later on. The band, since then, played live with the likes of Hadouken!, The Blackout, Fall Out Boy`s Patrick Stump and the incredibly talented but way too underrated bands, Kids In Glass Houses and Canterbury. They also performed at small and big UK festivals around the UK during last summer, including: Redfest, Merthyr Rock and Reading&Leeds festivals.
If you like electro music mixed with rock elements then you`ll like Proxies. I`m not really a fan of too much electronic stuff but I`m quite enjoying it and I think this kind of music works the best when it`s live.
They are also unsigned and offer free download on their songs via the band`s page. You only need to give your email address then you`ll get an Avril Lavigne reference as password to access to the free tunes…or at least that`s how it worked for me.
While at the Pomona stop of Warped Tour this year, Echosmith took some time to chat with us about being on the tour two years in a row, what new bands we should check out, their gratitude for signing to Warner Bros. Records, and what to expect from the band for the rest of the year. Watch the full video PV Q&A above.
