The band are a five piece, and at times there were four guitars playing at once which just added to the intense rock sound to the band. 485C are fronted by lead vocalist Adam Hume, who stands still a lot of the time when singing, with little sways and dances which reminds me a lot of artsy atmospheric artists such as Ian Curtis or David Bowie. The band have been playing together for around seven years now, and this is evident through their meticulously sharp riffs which blend together stunningly, played in absolutely perfect sync. On guitar you have Rory and Dom, with Sam on bass and Lucas on drums. As a vocalist, Adam is blinding; his vocal can be rough, with this gritty gravel to it, and he also uses these long wails to add to the intensity of the band’s sound. Very uncompromising and unique, 485C’s rough rock sound is laced with artsy elegance and a modernised twist on 80’s indie rock.
