We at Team First Touch are proud to announce the soundtrack for First Touch Football is being provided by the hottest new talent from Oxford, England. A total of 5 Bands are contributing towards an exceptional soundtrack which will feature throughout the game. Check out the bands below!
Charly Coombes & The New Breed
Charly Coombes & The New Breed are a contemporary rock and roll band, with one finger in a warm 60s soul pie. Singer/Songwriter Charly was a member of the indie-rock band 22-20s between 2003 and 2006, then became second guitarist with Supergrass in 2007 up until their recent split.
The band have played many successful gigs around the UK, released their debut EP “Panic” and completed a short tour of the United States, which included an off-the-cuff 30 minute set with Dave Grohl and Rami Jaffee from The Foo Fighters. The band are firing on all cylinders, and are now back on tour tipped to be the one to watch in 2011.
Spring Offensive are from Oxford. In the space of a year they self-released an EP, a mini-album and a free single. Boom. When not releasing things, they go up and down the country playing gigs. Many gigs.
They’ve also been interviewed a couple of times by Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music, been made Huw Stephens’s Tip Of The Week on Radio 1, and been featured on compilations by the Independent, Alcopop, Best of MySpace and BBC Oxford’s Radiohead tribute album.
They’ve shared a stage with Frank Turner, Hot Club de Paris, Talons, Stagecoach, Little Fish, Shapes, My First Tooth, Hold Your Horse Is, Thomas Truax and many other delightful folks. But not all at once. They’re about to make another record due for release in 2011 and the band are touring relentlessly!
A Silent Film
A Silent Film are undoubtedly a great band. The Oxfordian four piece’s second single, ‘You Will Leave A Mark’, (to feature on First Touch Football) won the band a deserved number one in The Sunday Times Culture’s Magazine’s ‘The Hottest Downloads’. Their anthemic piano-led music, like that of Coldplay, is as catchy and accessible as it is melodic.
The band are currently touring the USA until April 2011!
There are 5 members of alphabet backwards. Their ethos is simple: to champion the noble art of pop music, dancing all the way. It’s infectious, and puts a smile on your face. It’s a summery, joyous, happy-go-lucky affair, punctuated with an irresistible synth buzz and hooks aplenty.
With influences such as Ryan Adams, Guillemots & Girls Aloud, this band will have their songs stuck in your head for days on end!!
My Other Life
My Other Life are a band who sound like the love child of Radiohead, Coldplay, Elbow & The Script. Powerful piano based songs are what this bands about and they continue to deliver excellent song writing skills on all their upcoming releases.
“Melancholic, Elegant, Refined, Exquisite”
The band are currently on tour throughout the UK.
First Touch Football is due for release Spring 2011.
