Subterranean Popular Short Info

Subterranean Popular is a multi-gendered, guy-fronted, 3-piece riot-grrl rock band (how's that for a long intro), based in London and currently making their merry little way around the toilet circuit looking for a home that will serve them tasty soup.

They've been compared to bands like The Pixies, Sonic Youth and Nirvana, but still been praised for their distinctive indie and pop-tinged sound, with catchy little riffs and big, tasty melodies. Juxtaposing sometimes summery sounds with lots of fuzz, and dark lyrics.

Subterranean Popular formed in 2012, and after going through the usual chaotic line-up changes ended up with an eclectic but fitting mix of thinkers, artists and scribblers; a borderline genius academic and feminist thinker on drums, an expert artist and illustrator on bass and an Orwell obsessed, Bronte and Plath loving writer on guitar and vocals. A collection of slightly spacey ex-introverts who have been wrenched from their shells by bright lights and the scream of the crowd. Who needs therapy when you have music?

This all takes a back seat to our real love, which is playing our own brand of blistering indie-grunge rock, with the ultimate aim of escaping the bland, dead-eyed world of industrialised creativity where all talents are just used to sell the products of a big company. Well, we can dream can’t we?

"Subterranean Popular have really given grunge and indie a brand new sound, and are really a band to look out for in the future. A brilliant unique sound to be enjoyed by everyone!" Unsigned101

"Alternative style music seems to have lost its way in the mid-00's but Subterranean Popular are here to revitalise the scene with their perfect marriage of pop and grunge" Goldie Loxx, BBC Introducing
