A Doubtful Sound - Rock Grunge Stoner Rock Live Act in Bristol

A Doubtful Sound Short Info

Ollie & Hamish hail from NZ’s shakiest city, Christchurch. After the opportunity to link up with likeminded Bristol based musician Jake arose, the boys jumped on the first flight to the UK in 2012 showing the balls and belief in their sound to leave everything behind. With a shared love of hard hitting Rock’n’Roll, they disappeared in the studio to produce some demos & tracks you hear today.

While Hamish and Ollie had been producing big rock tunes in New Zealand together for years, Jake had also been making his own tracks in the Bristol music scene. Making the 3 of them well adjusted to the tough, dark music scene.

Releasing tracks online, they've quickly amassed a solid following with many drawing favourable comparisons to the Foo Fighters & Queens of the Stone Age. From recent articles and reviews, ADS have been dubbed the Desert Grunge rockers of Bristol. Receiving glowing online reviews, their latest track Dance Floor Killer” is now hitting NZ radio to be played to over 800,000+ listeners!

“Edgy, raw, & hugely impressive” The Unsigned Guide UK.

“Full of scuzzy guitars and thumping percussion the songs rattle along at a frenetic pace & ticks all the boxes” Music Reviews Unsigned.
