This is the guiding principle behind Some Villains: to exist in the ether between facile classifications. Their Facebook mission statement explains that the band’s music is an attempt “to straddle the line between the experimental and the accessible.”
- Sean Hannah
Some Villains is Edward Graves (guitar & vocals), Stuart Donovan (drums), Luke Tozer (guitar) and Jake Beckett (bass).
After 2016's debut EP, Lizard Teeth, 2018 saw a second release, 'Outliers'. The band have teamed up with producer Joe Marsh resulting in a cleaner, more focused sound crystallised best in 'Ghosts in the Field' a 'Strokesian' encounter with a colder, harder edge. 'The Skin' is a change of gears, featuring blistering guitars and an exploration of lost love and rejection.
