Sidearm : Home Recordings Vol. 1 and Sing Cinema 16! Sing!

Further to their debut EP, ‘Don’t Cry Help Until You’re Dead’, we now have the two subsequent limited release EPs from Sidearm, ‘Home Recordings Vol. 1’ and ‘Sing Cinema 16! Sing!’, on Lost Children.

Extending upon and enhancing the indie-post-hardcore style of their debut, ‘Home Recordings Vol. 1’ was produced and recorded solely by the band themselves and demonstrates the intelligent nature of Sidearm, combining quirky timing with gang vocals and jumpy instrumentation. ‘Sing Cinema 16! Sing’ continues the progression, ups the melody count and displays the potential of this band prior to their ongoing hiatus.

Band members:
Allen/Walker/Mitchell/Moore

Sidearm : Don’t Cry Help Until You’re Dead

Band members:

Allen/Walker/Mitchell/Moore

“Don’t cry help until you’re dead” – words said by the pond on a beautiful summers evening; words that would christen our debut EP. These 5 songs come from two separate recording sessions in 2003/2004. These sessions were some of the best fun we’ve had in our lives. The best times however are when we have the opportunity to play these songs to appreciative folk at various small and intimate venues across the UK.

Someone said this about us once:

“Melodic jump-drop indie crash-out”

We like that description. But have a listen and make up your own mind. Because that’s what we do it for.

Much love
Sidearm
