As stereotypical visions of people and places go, the good folks of Doncaster aren’t exactly at the top of the list when thoughts turn to embracing new, experimental music. Indeed, having spent the occasional stag night in DN1 and its dens of iniquity also known as night clubs, the nearest anyone could expect to come to encountering new music would be the “Indie half hour” in Seventh Heaven, where Oasis, The Enemy and Ocean Colour Scene are the so-called alternative.
Thank heavens for small mercies then, as 93MillionMilesFromTheSun not only manage to dampen stereotypes, but obliterate them. Combining layered, textured guitars over an array of effects and choral vocals, 93MillionMilesFromTheSun is one of those bands that, while evoking memories of the likes of Slowdive in their heyday or even a more sonically enhanced Maps, stands tall and proud in their own right due to the dazzling range of variation across their music.
Another key element of 93MillionMilesFromTheSun’s extensive make-up is that not only do they express a desire to take their sonic experimentation one step further, but they also never lose sight of the fact that beneath all the reverb and delay lay actual songs that would sound just as affecting stripped down.
