Hailing from the capital of Scotland, Painting Rockets first arrived on the scene in early 2014. Forming the band as its core members, singer, Keli Thomson, and guitarist, Stephen Christie, began the process of seeking out members to complete the line up whilst self releasing their first two EPs, "Happiness in Measures" (2015) and "From the Debris" (2016).
After a long process of trial and error, Keli Thomson and Stephen Christie continue on today as the duo known as Painting Rockets ahead of their third EP release tipped for early 2019. With their highly anticipated new EP, "trial + error", they are determined to prove that they do not need anyone else in order to succeed.
Displaying a wide range of musical ability and genre, the dark and ambient sounds of the early material has softened into more melodically driven writing to show off their versatility as songwriters. Partially recorded at the famous Abbey Road Studios, "trial + error" boasts fun riffs, catchy melodies and electronic undertones and captures the emotional maturity and songwriting progression of this band. Earlier releases saw them share the stage with the likes of The Virginmary's, Woes, and Dream State, but they are more than ready to show off their new poppy sound and style.
To round off, Painting Rockets are a band that you won't forget, with talent and an eagerness to learn, explore and adapt that's already turning the heads of household names. Painting Rockets are ready for take off.
