Sandtimer is a British folk-rock band formed by Robert Sword and Simon Thomas.
Inspired to collaborate on arrangements together after a series of sporadic jamming sessions, the pair begun performing on the UK acoustic circuit in 2014 with a minimal stage setup of two guitars and two vocals.
Drawing influences from the likes of Neil Young, Nick Drake and Joni Mitchell, Sandtimer weave intricate guitar counterpoints with Appalachian-infused vocal harmonies to underpin their percussive, uplifting and often somewhat left field songs.
Sandtimer released their debut EP, Different Seas at the end of 2015, followed by Mackerel the following year, which they supported with a tour of west Canada. Sword and Thomas frequently play live with touring bassist and backing vocalist Rachel Thomas and percussionist Alex Jackson. They are now working on their debut full-length album, which will be released sometime in 2018 and supported with tours of the UK, Germany and Canada.
