Since forming in 2016, The Easter Island Statues, comprised of Donald Campbell (guitar/vocals), James Askwith (bass/brass) and Thomas Hitch (drums) have been pricking ears in hometown Oxford, London and further afield with their inimitable and esoteric brand of indie alt-rock.
Drawing comparisons to the likes of The Strokes, Maximo Park and Husker Du, the band’s debut EP 'Why Don’t you Live in the Garden?' saw the band garner international recognition, including US college radio play on WFUV in New York and a placement for O’Neill's ‘Hit the Road’ wakeboarding series. Testaments to the group’s energy and zeal, these early tracks were what lay the groundwork for what’s gone on to become their signature sound: frantic guitars, frenetic percussion and fervent vocals.
In July 2019, the band is set to release their second EP: I Wouldn't Worry About It.
