Submariner came together ambient indie rock, emotive lyricism and an organic flair for ear worm melodies.
Due to a desire to have a band to play the material he’d been touring as a solo artist, James Herrity, singer/guitarist, formed Submariner in 2015. The band quickly evolved into something new, taking pop song structures and immersing them in ambient soundscapes. Submariner then developed a following in the south coast, known for their high energy and interactive live shows.
Starting with the release of their debut music video 2017 was a strong year for the band. ‘Closer’ racked up 10,000 plays in a matter of days, which gained the attention of BBC Introducing and in turn receiving copious radio play. Their debut television appearance was on BBC south today ahead of their performance at 2017’s ‘Common People’ festival. Following on from “Closer” they released more singles including “Where do we go from here?” which premiered with “Line of Best Fit”.
Listen to ‘Closer’ below.
Summer saw more busy shows for Submariner after their signing to the prestigious indie booking agency ‘Close up’ promotions, launching them into the London music scene. Their festival season closed with a slot at ‘Victorious Festival’, where they performed in front of thousands of people, under headliner Stereophonics and Elbow.
Heading in to the winter season Submariner showed off the emotive side of their pallet with the release of their latest single ‘Stumbling’, which quickly became a fan favourite at shows. The band finished 2017 with a headline tour of the south coast, packing out venues in Brighton, Portsmouth and Southampton, as well as playing with other up and coming bands in new cities.
Another great track that you can listen to by Submariner is ‘Blewitt’.
The band have spent January in the studio working on exciting new material ahead of a very busy touring schedule.
With a brand new video and single on the way, more festival appearances, two tours announced and more to come, 2018 is looking set to be a big year for the Brighton based quartet.
Let’s see what Jame’s Herrity has to say about Vocalzone!
“I’ve been using Vocalzone pastilles for years, they’re great at keeping your voice clear and have become a staple part of my pre-show warm-up routine”
