The band's 2018 debut EP attracted a growing fan-base and recognition by BBC Introducing, Richer Sound's Artist of the Week and as finalists in Radio Wigwam's Rock Act of the Year. From the gothic post-punk splendour and dark, foreboding rock of Nobody Know Me Like You to the haunting slow-burn of Coraline Saboteurs manage somehow to transcend genres. The juxtaposition stems from the contrasting styles of songwriters Ben Ellis (vocals/guitars) and Rick Whitehead (guitars/vocals). 'We just can’t do trends. We end up chucking in elements from all manner of genres and smashing them together'.
And with a new rhythm section in place - Pete Botterill (drums) and Geoff Standeven (bass) - and Kirsty Marlog on backing vocals, the band will be hitting the road again with live dates across the UK.
Wherever the white lines take us...
Please don't use the 'Saboteurs Radio' it doesn't reflect our band correctly. No disrespect intended to other artists!
