Periscope View Short Info

Formed by Helena and Simon who met at a mutual friends party, London based Periscope View got together early in 2014 creating indie rock music, but in May 2014 the line up changed as the bass player left.

By June 2014, Periscope View had found their new sound, and have drawn comparisons to artists such as Morcheeba, Portishead, London Grammar, Sneaker Pimps, The XX and Sigur Rós.

After just a couple of months with the new formation, Periscope View were spotted by industry podcast Chartburst and featured as one to watch.

After a year showcasing their sounds and working hard to create original, interesting and thoughtful songs alongside energetic performances, Summer 2015 brought the much anticipated release of "The Grays Grown EP" recorded at OneCat Studios, produced and mastered by Del Sajiwandani aka DJ Sonic.

Perisocpe View recorded their second EP "Photographs" with Steve Honest in Hackney, which was released in January 2016.
