The Desert
Following on from last year’s Playing Dead EP, Bristol based The Desert return with the hypnotic new single Gone. The Desert started as a collaboration between lead singer & songwriter Gina Leonard and producer, guitarist Tom Fryer. The pair first worked together when Tom producer some of Gina’s solo work. The two soon hit upon a formula of Tom taking the songs that Gina had written with an acoustic guitar and adding layers of electronics and lush, detailed production.

Out of those early productions The Desert was born. They quickly came to the attention of the world with their hauntingly beautiful, debut single Just Get High in June of last year. Picking up plays on BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music and Radio X, the single was followed by further tracks and later that year their Playing Dead EP.

Since then the band have been busy working on new material as well as performing their songs live for the first time. Most significantly for their live show, the line up has expanded, with Ryan Rogers (bass) and Jonny Parry (drums, electronics) joining the band. The addition of these new, full time members has allowed The Desert to truly emulate their songs in a live environment.

+ Strange Love
A new project from familiar faces, who bring you moody bluesy rock and roll.
