About The Band

Bio: Fresh from recording the brand new ‘Feeding The Fire’ EP with maverick producer Sean Genockey (The Futureheads/Reuben/Kula Shaker/Manics), alternative rock band Albany are quickly earning themselves a reputation as one of London’s finest live bands.

Formed out of a mutual desire to make fresh, exciting music with real substance in an age of disposable soundalikes and short attention spans, Albany draw on influences from Muse to Turin Brakes to create an innovative and unpredictable sound.

Switching from unrelenting, heart-pounding frenetic rock to tender, graceful melodic pop at the drop of a hat, Albany fuse boundless energy with a highly charged emotional intensity. At the very heart of the band lies a firm belief in the often overlooked arts of great songwriting, musicianship, and a keen spirit of musical adventure. The interplay between the shared lead vocals of Charlie Palley and Guy Hixon gives rise to a constantly changing dynamic. They are a band in a permanent state of flux, always moving and adapting, growing and evolving.
