Juniper Nights is a four-piece alternative rock band from Oxford, formed at the start of 2017. The band consists of James Gallagher (Vocals/Guitar), Zach Wilmott (Guitar), Marty Melvin (Bass), and Tom Lindsay (Drums).
James, Zach, and Tom previously performed together in the indie band 'Pipeline’, with bassist Jason Rich. Jason and Zach were friends from university and found James and Tom online through a musician finding website. In February 2017, Jason moved to Sweden to pursue his career, and Marty took his place to complete the lineup. The band changed their name to Juniper Nights to reflect their change in lineup and darker sound.
Juniper Nights' music is typically a combination of sombre and textural, juxtaposed with aggressive guitar riffs to create a dynamically varying sound. However, their musical style often varies significantly between songs, with dark undertones being the underlying theme. This sound is heavily influenced by a number of British rock bands such as Radiohead, Elbow, and Alt-J. Whilst their music is primarily guitar-based, they often experiment with other sounds, inspired by the works of trip hop and electronic artists such as Aphex Twin, Portishead, Massive Attack, and Unkle. This includes the use of keyboards, drum machines, and strings, as well as the manipulation of sound using effects.
You know, sometimes math rock can be a little clean and tidy and precise? This trio, Bisch Nadar, take a far more rambunctious and raw approach to the genre.
