Biography

“Their songs are tight and sleek disco nuggets, glamorous and totally accessible. MAY68 possess
potential in spades.” NME
“Let MAY68 kick your ass all the way to the dancefloor.” Clash
“More infectious than swine flu and fierce enough to drive La Roux and Little Boots to full-blown
commercial suicide.” The Fly

MAY68 were born in late 2008, the creative output of a 5 piece collective of musicians, artists, producers, and DJs. Having met in the throngs of Manchester’s bustling alternative club scene, they set out to create their own sound taking influences from New York disco, post-punk, Chicago house, vintage electronics, classic pop and science fiction soundtracks.

Reacting to the frustration of mundane city life and with a desire for change the band reflect the ideals of their names sakes from Paris 1968, aiming to give a splash of colour to otherwise black and white surroundings. Through a collection of creative minds, a ferocious optimism and a DIY ethos their objective is to share their ideas through an infectious blend of pop music and four to the floor sensibilities, stimulating the crowd’s hips whilst satisfying their heads with a unique sound and a colourful worldview.

Debut single, electro disco ‘My Ways’, and it’s tongue in cheek tale of a date gone wrong quickly caught the attention of radio with Nick Grimshaw, Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, John Kennedy, Rob Da Bank and Eddy Temple-Morris all supporting the single and remixes.
