Inspired by classic indie pop-rock/post-punk revival bands from the U.K and the States, The Common View burst onto the Leeds music scene in late 2018.
This young five-piece creates its own style by utilising a mix of Ska rhythms and relentless guitar progressions provided by Guitarists Jose and Dom, alongside Joe’s charming, melodic bass-lines which are brought together by the upbeat drumming of Will. Dom's and Jacob’s harmonic vocals deliver cutting messages, commenting on the issues of everyday life and society, painting the band as not only seasoned romantics, but also as advocates for social justice, equality and human rights.
Having started gigging as part of the local Leeds music scene in notable local venues such as The Lending Room, as well as a main stage performance at the O2 Academy. They quickly broadened their horizons, taking on multiple gigs in Manchester at places such as The Night and Day Cafe - a legendary venue known for harbouring well-known bands such as Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian in their infancy. From there, the band have continued to make regular appearances in numerous Northern cities such as Sheffield, York, Durham, and Liverpool.
After landing a main stage slot at their first summer festival, K-Fest (supporting Cast), The Common View are keen to firmly establish themselves as the UK’s next exciting festival band.
