I'm the drummer and backing vocalist for InAir, an Alt Rock three piece from Reading, featuring Joe Conneely on Bass and vocals and Aaron Illey on Guitar. As a band we have a passion for contrasting sparkling cleans with atmospheric synths. Typically backed up by a driven climactic chorus and drawing from a wide range of influences, our alternative electronic rock sound is ever shifting and evolving by its very nature. Releases so far include three-track single 'Meant to Be' and EP "A Different Light." Live highlights to date include supporting bands such as: Arcane Roots, All Ears Avow, Chasing Cadence + Junior, Death Remains/Bleed Again on tour, Core Of Io/Vrona on tour, Defences, Dronningen, Echoic, Elasea, From Inside, Heel, Little Mammoths, Toffees and Reading's own Veridian. As a band we book a lot of our own shows and tours, as well as arranging an annual all-dayer, Reading Rising, an Alt-Rock festival of up and coming bands, at Facebar in Reading. The event is set over two stages and brings big names in the genre, local heroes, as well as lesser known but upcoming bands to town. Our sophomore EP 'Dreamful' was released last September - check out the InAir website here for the latest updates.
“KKK. Reading alt.rockers introduce themselves with a skyscraping debut EP. ...brilliantly clean cut tracks with a startling clarity of purpose. ...juddering samples...surging riffs...beguiling vocals..ebb-and-flow pyrotechnics.. sparse synths and techtonic riffage. Strange, surging and unashamedly stylised closer Insomnia continues to show off the band's grand ambitions.”
