2005 – present (12 years)
The Jane Bradfords are a five piece. Sometimes they can be as large as a seven piece. Sometimes its just one guy in a studio cursing at old keyboards that used to work perfectly well.
The Jane Bradfords are difficult to pigeonhole into a genre; on the surface they’re Indie, but elements of Pop, Electro and even post punk are all in the mix. There’s the nonchalant swagger of The National, the driving, tight Peter Hook style bass and at times the euphoric hosannas of Arcade Fire, but they have a defiantly unique sound.
The list of bands that they have supported reads like a who’s who of niche indie and includes The National, DeVotchKa, Deerhunter, Maximo Park, LCD Soundsystem, Cold War Kids, and Peter Bjorn and John among others.
They have received critical acclaim from the media, including being crowned ‘God of the Pod’ in Huw Stephens best of unsigned 2006 on Radio 1 and recording a subsequent session in the famed Maida Vale studios. Radio 1’s ‘introducing’ subsequently awarded the band with ‘album of the week’ for their 2008 self-titled debut LP.
