Biography

London, United Kingdom (2007 – present)

We Have Band is a London, UK based DIY trio of: Darren Bancroft (vocals, drums, percussion, sampler), Dede Wegg-Prosser (vocals, percussion, sampler) & husband Thomas Wegg-Prosser (vocals, guitar, bass, programming) - founded 2007.

In 2009, they toured Europe and the USA and spent a lot of time in the studio, with producer Gareth Jones. At Glastonbury they won “Emerging Talent Competition 2009” & now, hoping to prove the critics correct, with their début album, “WHB” (Apr 2010). A new album “Movements” (28 Apr 2014) is planned, produced by band member Thomas and co-produced and mixed by Tim Goldsworthy (DFA Records, LCD Soundsystem, Unkle, Mo’Wax).

Drawing from a well of influences that include ESG, Animal Collective and The Rapture, the band created their own sound - a 21st Century mixtape that defies categorisation or pigeonholing. With the prime focus on making people dance, they quickly took the big step of taking their music to the stage, despite having little to no previous experience between them. “We learnt quickly” says Dede, “I never thought I’d be in a band, I definitely didn’t ever see myself on a stage! But after the first few shows you get over the scary bit and the buzz just took over – there was no looking back.”

‘The snowball effect’ is a fitting description for the band’s first year; play a few shows in London, play a few more outside of London, start getting a lot more hits on MySpace, NME and Dazed & Confused get in touch about doing ‘ones to watch’ features, label’s start calling and before you know it they have their first release.
