Albany

Albany are a four piece, powerful indie rock band from Lincoln with a rough edge and one unanimous passion - to resurrect the anthemic British guitar appeal. Written by Matt Duke, Albany's songs are set on delivering the notion that 'all great songs tell a story,' and with the bands' broad scale of influences brought to the table, ranging from Arctic Monkeys, Stereophonics, Foals and The Charlatans, mixed with the other side of the pond in Nirvana, Green Day and Kings Of Leon, their songs do exactly that - hit you with a relatable meaning. After releasing their first six-track EP 'Lead The Way' back in June 2015, Albany went on to play a number of gigs including alongside Scouting For Girls at Mudfest in Newark, a headline slot at The Shed in Leicester and twice at The Fiddler's Elbow in Camden. Following the positive reception of 'Lead The Way,' Albany then went on to record a live session in the Summer of 2016 for BBC Introducing in Lincolnshire and then in March 2017, the band were selected to play alongside Marsicans and local band The Ultraviolet. This was part of the plugged sessions, run by BBC Introducing at the Engine Shed in Lincoln and was the perfect way to finish promoting their first record.
