The Baskervilles Short Info

The Baskervilles are a 4 piece British Rock band hailing from Ipswich, Suffolk. Delivering a jet black prognosis of twenty something life through a blend of raw energy, hip-hop influenced grooves and the syncopated grind of 8 bit guitar. The band have spent the last year working in the studio with award winning producer Tom Donovan, finding ways to push the boundaries of what is considered ‘Rock music’. Drawing influences from Rock, Indie and hip-hop, The Baskervilles are for people who enjoy the likes of the Arctic Monkeys, Biffy Clyro, The Libertines, The Amazons, Royal Blood, Two Door Cinema Club and Catfish and the Bottlemen.

The Baskervilles first release of the year, ‘Death of a Pop Song’, received an exclusive pre-release through BBC Introducing Suffolk and has had some glorious reviews:

“Rhythm, intelligence, creativity but more importantly individuality… What more could we ask for?” - Kiefer Horlock, A Bag of Chips

“The chaotic nature of Death of a Pop song is the real story here though, it’s the sort of controlled chaos that can put you on sensory overload and spin you back around for multiple listens.” - Chris Ambrosino, For The Love Of Bands

“Stripping away from the cookie cutter sounds and lyrics to deliver not only an original style, but visuals to entertain and raise eyebrows” - BRASH! Magazine

The Baskervilles second single ‘YEAH YEAH YEAH’ was released in early September to further support from BBC Introducing Suffolk and some more great reviews, including:

“It’s a powerful guitar-led track, with vocals that slide through everything like a knife through (dairy-free) butter, and resonate within your mind.” – Joe Weaver, B –Side Music Magazine

“‘Yeah, Yeah, Yeah’ is the perfect balance for someone like myself. It has the heavy hitting guitar rifts that make me want to let my hair down and start head banging until I hurt myself, but it also has the slower moments that impart that sense of feeling and emotion that, I believe, are critical for any song to be a hit.” Kiefer Horlock, A Bag of Chips.

Kalashnikov, The Baskervilles third single of the year was released on 1st December 2017. Kalashnikov balances heavy hitting riffs and raw guitar tones with synth sub-bass and trap hats more often heard in hip-hop or pop music. The band produced the video for Kalashnikov themselves, wanting full creative control so that they could create a video that would reflect the messages within the lyrics.

"Kalashnikov is the voice of anger for anyone who has the sense that we are currently being dealt a bleak future through the decisions made by the elite few. Though don't mistake Kalashnikov as a war cry for violence, the message in both the song and video is about taking a hard look into the twisted mirror of our society and understanding it's full of hypocrisy, the world needs to change but nothing good can come from screaming peace and love with a Kalashnikov in your hands." - The Baskervilles
