WHO: Big Oil
SEEKING: “Looking for singer”
ABOUT THE PROJECT: “We’re a post-Punk band formerly known as OILBAY. We lost our former singer due to a Pandemic relocation and want a fresh start writing songs with someone new. We’re democratically run with a writing process consisting of developing ideas from our weekly jams or one of us bringing riffs/parts/song ideas to practices. It’s a casual band, but eventually looking to record & play shows again. Currently, there are three of us, Guitar, Bass/Guitar, and Drums. The three of us have played in bands together for a long time, so we have years of cataloged jams/concepts to dig into, but we also want to formulate new songs with this new person, and hopefully, they have songs they want to flesh out with us as well. We do have a couple of new ideas as a starting point that we’re looking further develop with you.”
DETAILS: “It would be great if you have the ability to play another instrument or want to experiment with live vocal effects but not a deal breaker; we can always add another member if needed. So this should be a fun-carefree project, but we are looking for someone to be committed to putting in the time.
Some influences: Roxy music, Siouxsie and the banshees, television, joy division, thee oh sees, Cate le bon, homeshake, built to spill, Lucius, the knife, women, Neil young”
