The Leopard

As stereotypical visions of people and places go, the good folks of Doncaster aren't exactly at the top of the list when thoughts turn to embracing new, experimental music. Indeed, having spent the occasional stag night in DN1 and its dens of iniquity also known as night clubs, the nearest anyone in the town could expect to encounter new music would be only on the radio.
Thank heavens for small mercies then, as 93MillionMilesFromTheSun not only manage to dampen stereotypes they obliterate them.
Doncaster's 93MillionMilesFromTheSun who are Nick mailing (Vocals Effects Guitars), Kenno (Bass Guitar) and Jase Burns (Drums Loops Effects Samples) have been responsible for some of the most effervescent sounds of recent years. While 2008's self titled debut undoubtedly lit the touch paper, each subsequent release has not only reaffirmed their status as the leading light among the UK shoegaze scene, but also heralded a stark progression sonically from each of its predecessors in the process.
Comparisons to My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive are inevitable, and on the tube screaming ‘Sonic Assault' and cavernous ‘Without You Near' more than justified. However, what sets 93MillionMilesFromTheSun apart from many of their contemporaries merely content with rehashing the past is their deliberate penchant to push new boundaries.
Combining layered, textured guitars over an array of effects and choral vocals, Another key element of 93MillionMilesFromTheSun's extensive make-up is that not only do they express a desire to take their sonic experimentation one step further, but they also never lose sight of the fact that beneath all the reverb and delay lay actual songs that would sound just as affecting stripped down.
The band have released 6 critically acclaimed studio albums and have toured the UK and Europe playing alongside bands such as Ride, New Order, Public Service Broadcasting, A Place To Bury Strangers, Maps, Slowdive, Telescopes, My Bloody Valentine.
