THE DOMINO STATE

The Domino State is a five-member ensemble from London, which developed from the romantic indie-wave Band At the Lake. Lead singer Matt Forder and the two guitarists Jim Machin and Tim Buckland formed the band, and added a new rhythm section by integrating the bass player Will Padley as well as drummer Richard Simic in their music project. The Domino State has created an epic and effect loaded sound that has a lot in common with the energy of the post-punk of the British Shoegaze scene but also a whole lot of pop potential. Additionally, the dynamic intensity of their live shows brought them a support slot for Coldplay in the O2 arena London before an audience of 20,000 in addition to gigs with M83,Longview and The Boxer Rebellion. The Domino State has also extended its reach to Germany, where they won over audiences in Berlin and Hamburg. They’ve also performed at major UK festivals, namely Glastonbury, Beautiful Days and Summer Sunday Weekender. Musically, they’ve had success with their single releases, getting support from UK and Germany radio outlets such as BBC, Xfm, NME, Kerrang!, FluxFM, RBB, Radio Fritz, You FM, Delta, NDR and stations in the U.S., Peru, Italy and more. The first single “Firefly,” had been released on iTunes UK, as well in Germany, and the promotion work for this single has aroused first interests at the media. The band is currently available for licensing, publishing, signing and booking in various markets.
