Based out of Blackpool and featuring members of Me vs Hero and Formica Trust, indie pop-punk five-piece Every Effort Made are still in their infancy having only formed two months. However with their debut EP/demo, 'Who Would Make Up Stories As Horrible As This', the band are quickly making their mark with their laid back melodies that are subtly charged with raw energy. Whilst the blend of male-female vocals from Bobby Pook and Laura Catlow respectively adds additional texture to the bands sound.
With comparisons to bands like Tigers Jaw already been thrown about, Every Effort Made's stature and confidence is bound to grow in the coming months, with new material and more shows in the works.
Alter The Press: Why should Alter The Press! readers check you out?
Every Effort Made: Well... You know that bit in "Gleaming The Cube" when Christian Slater Ollie's of a bridge to knock the gun out of the bad dudes hand? Well thats awesome. Irrelevant, but awesome all the same. People should check us out because we're really nice friendly, realistic people who make really sweet music and rad melodies. We love 80's montages, slow build up applauses and the bit in the middle of walnut whips.
ATP: What's the story behind the band?
: Well Me (Bobby Pook), Oli and Spin met when we played in a band called Hit By An Apple when we were like 17. Me and Spin then started a grindcore band called When People Become Numbers and Oli started Me vs Hero. I later Joined Me vs Hero and Oli left earlier this year. Laura has been playing the circuit with her old band, Pink Herse and solo acoustically for a few years and was doing really well.
Me, Spin, Oli and Sheldon have always loved jamming together on and off for years and when we hooked up with Laura it just felt right. Every Effort Made was born.
