Following the success of several gloomy post-punk revival bands, the Cinematics formed in 2003 and hail from Glasgow, Scotland, after originally meeting in Dingwall.
Inspired by the likes of the Cure and Echo & the Bunnymen, the band includes guitarist Ramsay Miller, bassist Adam Goemans, drummer Ross Bonney, and vocalist/guitarist Scott Rinning. By 2005, the Cinematics were touring the U.K. with Ambulance LTD, the Editors, and Brendan Benson, also signing with TVT Records. Their first single, "Chase," was released in September 2006 and produced by Stephen Hague (Blur, New Order). A full-length, A Strange Education, came out the following year. ~ Kenyon Hopkin, Rovi
