Battersea mould songs. We search for catchy choruses and riffs. They pop up where we gather: in the studio, in the rehearsal room. And when they don’t come easy, we take the time. Our songs are built on strong rhythms and solid foundation of bass. De guitars set the atmosphere and add to the vocal harmonies. Every snare, strum and counterpoint we weigh. Until it’s solid as a rock.
To the fans that appreciate the hooks and choruses by Muse, the drums of Foo fighters, the guitars of Kings of Leon, the bass of U2 and the voice of Creedence: Battersea digests well. And everyone who ever listened to AC/DC, Slayer, Johnny Cash or Bad Religion will find our sound check a trip down memory lane. You’ll hear where we come from. Or at least we can share a drink over music talk.
Erwin took the stage internationally with metal band Mangled, Bennie with a rock n roll band. Mike, Sander and Tom hit the road with hardcore punk band The Jux Junction. All that experience in the studio, all the live shows and all the song writing add up to… Battersea.
