Nottingham five-piece The Memoirs are gearing up to unveil their epic, guitar-fuelled slice of alt.rock to a wider audience through the release of debut single Means To an End out now via Strataville.
Means To an End is a call to arms to take control of your own life and to change it for the better, flying in the face of a monotonous daily work life, anti-climactic weekends and the disappointment of fair-weather friends.
Taking inspiration from the raging indie-rock that made The Strokes famous, and melding that sound beautifully with the post-punk sensibilities of French Kicks and Jonathan Fire*Eater, The Memoirs have offered up a single that combines melodic hooks with a jagged rock edge.
Consisting of Ned Jones (vocals), Seb Doyle (guitar), Alex Perry (guitar), Jamie Irving (bass) and James Lyons (drums), The Memoirs first met at Nottingham University and subsequently dropped out to form the band. They have since wowed crowds at a packed out show at Dot to Dot Festival, Nottingham.
Means To an End is accompanied by two additional songs, the equally angular 'Bathed In Light' and 'Barely Living' taken from their forthcoming EP. With another EP in the works, The Memoirs are set to make their mark on the music industry and fans alike.
Means To an End is out now via Strataville.
