Careless Sons Short Info

North London guitar band Careless Sons is made up of childhood friends Dickon, Rob and Ben, who were drawn together over a shared lust for the lyrical cartwheels and melodic barbs of heroes such as Manic Street Preachers, Bruce Springsteen and Arctic Monkeys.

Formed in 2013, they set about constructing their own unique brand of rousing, temple-busting, literate ‘pop ‘n’ roll’ and fast created a name for themselves on the London circuit, delivering a string of sweaty, adrenaline drenched live performances to ever increasing audiences. With an unrelenting knack for divining pop gems, the band refuse to smooth the edges, likening their sound to your favourite pair of jeans; “frayed at the edges, full of holes and fucking sexy”.

Along the way they have supported acts such as To Kill A King, CHILDCARE, Lux Lisbon and S*M*A*S*H, as well as picking up a number of plays on local, national and international radio stations, including BBC London.

In October 2014 they released the Carbon Dating EP and embarked on a UK tour, culminating in a sold out show at The Lexington in London, alongside Lux Lisbon.

2015 has seen the boys back in the studio recording a brand new EP, scheduled for release towards the end of the year. They played their biggest ever headline show at London’s Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen on 10 October.

Careless Sons are:

Dickon Collinson - Guitar/Vox
Rob D'Ath - Guitar/Vox
Ben Donnelly - Bass/Vox
