live band


EDITSELECT describe themselves as "A young musical gang from the Art Beat of London's lower South East side" - which is about right, an edgy New Wave pop band in the finest art school tradition, with songs bristling with originality, creativity and irrepressible charm.

According to indie tastemaker and XFM DJ John Kennedy ,"They're rather good", and who are we to disagree, especially when EDIT/SELECT make such a habit of producing ingeniously catchy and inspiring tracks with classic-sounding titles like "Temple", "Our Love Is Tropical" and "This Waiting Game" (all available to hear on their own shiny website: or on their facebook page:

EDITSELECT are a band that take being a damn good live band very seriously, but somehow manage to make it seem pretty effortless and fun and the same time.

They've played at Brownstock 2012 (The Futureheads, Labrynth, Badly Drawn Boy), Strawberry Fields 2012 (The Charlatans, Labrynth), Guilfest 2009 (alongside Motorhead, Happy Mondays, Athlete, You Me At Six), the 30,000 strong Peoples Day Festival in 2009, 2010 and 2011, and at after show parties for Franz Ferdinand, The Maccabees and Bombay Bicycle Club.

They've also played support slots to the likes of Art Brut, The Holloways, Towers of London and Toploader on their most recent tours. The band have picked up recommendations from City Showcase, Redstripe Music Awards, The Fly and The Roundhouse Youth Scheme.

They toured the Netherlands three times in one year and also secured the sponsorship of Jameson's and Mistral. Recent performances at IndigO2, Scala and Barfly have further established that this group are all about introducing new music; they are always evolving and expanding their set and actively avoid the clich s that most bands fall victim to.

The band are currently working on a series of single releases for 2013
