Readership is a jangle pop band from Philadelphia. Songwriter Adrian Morse creates stories from historical yarns, scenes from literature, and relatable blunders of personal experience.
Adrian brings these urgent and weather-beaten sketches to Gregory, Gabe, and Matt, who fashion a backdrop to each narrative. They enjoy keeping live shows merry and upbeat while performing songs about visiting ghosts, sinking ships, and explorations gone awry.
The band formed around its members’ soft spot for 80’s - 90’s music played on the college radio stations of yesteryear. As Philadelphia’s WXPN described the band in a recent review, “Local indie four-piece Readership are big fans of the 80s college rock era; any listen to their back catalog would have hinted this...they bring that loving homage to the forefront.” Indeed, past releases have been compared to college radio classics and indie mainstays like R.E.M., Talking Heads, early U2, Modest Mouse, and Spoon.
