Double Errors. Double weekend Errors. Two chances to wig out on their dusty anologue and drums go gleaming dance thrill. They may look like escapees from a geography field trip but this Glasgow band will make you move in awesome twitches and spasms. Real heart on time. Anyway, the choice is available: Bristol with the quality silicon chip supports, or Cardiff and Right Hand Left Hand’s autobahn riff goosing and Hyener’s lean and spacious Krauting. You heard.
Errors is a 4 piece band from Glasgow, Scotland. Originally formed in 2004 by Simon Ward, Stephen Livingstone and Greg Paterson on the back of a 3 track demo recorded in Simon’s bedroom the band quickly set about making a name for themselves in their hometown with their unique take on dance music. The band were soon taken under the wing of Mogwai who signed them to their Rock Action label alongside the likes of Part Chimp and James Orr Complex.
To date they have released a series of 7” singles, EPs and their debut album ‘It’s Not Something But It Is Like Whatever” through Rock Action and these releases have brought them to the attention of the mainstream media with support and acclaim for the band coming across the board from MTV, DJ’s like Zane Lowe, John Kennedy and Vic Galloway along with sessions at Maida Vale for Mary Anne Hobbs, Rob Da Bank and Huw Stephens, magazines such as NME, Dazed and Confused and Rock Sound as well as tours and live dates with bands as varied as Underworld, Franz Ferdinand, Explosions In The Sky, Gary Numan and Mogwai.
2009 marked the recording of Errors’ sophomore release; “Come Down With Me”. Recorded and produced by the band in their customised studio “The Freezer” based in Glasgow’s East End. The record builds on the merged sound of electronic and analogue that has become Errors signature. Angular, spiraling guitars, underpinned by truly mesmerising beats combined with euphoric synths and pop hooks.
‘Come Down With Me’ is an exceptional return from Errors. Expansive, ambitious, intelligent and genre-defying, tracks such as “Bridge or Cloud?”, “Beards” and future single “A Rumour In Africa” are destined to make 2010 as being a landmark year for the band.
