Underline The Sky - Katie
It’s been just four years since female-fronted Underline The Sky formed in the small town of Ipswich in the UK. With no backing, management, PR, agent or record label, the list of achievements Underline The Sky has to their name is more than impressive. The band spent their first year writing and recording their debut EP, and following the success of it’s DIY release they won the national music competition ‘Road To V 2009’, and played V Festival alongside McFly, The Killers and Dizzee Rascal. They toured this EP throughout the UK until, in 2010 they went back into the studio to write and record their second EP ‘Just So You Know…’. This EP was self-released by the band again, and was received with huge success worldwide, through online music sales, and eventually led them to an endorsement from Rockstar Energy Drink. In 2011 Underline The Sky hit the road again to tour ‘Just So You Know..’, and this year included their first show in Europe and a slot on a festival on the tiny island of Guernsey in the English Channel! By the end of 2011 Underline The Sky had already notched up over 300 shows, and sold well over 2,000 copies of their first two releases. In January 2012 Underline The Sky hit the studio again to record their third EP, and debut single with producer Marc Dowding. “We were really excited to work with Marc. We loved the work he’d done, and we knew he’d be able to help us craft the sound we wanted to go for on this EP [Days Like These]. We just can’t wait to get out on the road and tour the new songs. There’s so much energy in the new EP it’s going to be so much fun to play live!” Summer 2012 will see Underline The Sky make their debut appearance at the newest of the major UK festivals ‘Latitude’, in support of the release of ‘Days Like These’, and their debut single ‘Bad News’.
