Mixing massive guitar riffs, pop hooks and huge choruses, Sonder combine elements of early grunge with a modern twist of alt rock.
Formed in Tamworth, Staffordshire by guitarist and vocalist Kraig Fallows, lead guitarist Andrew Monckton, bassist Luke Watson & drummer Reece Mason at the end of 2016, the four members came together after the demise of their respective previous projects and decided to try and form a band that mixed all the different styles and influences that the members love.
Sonder burst on to their local music scene in June of 2017 with their 3 track debut E.P 'Papered Cracks' making lead single 'Make Up Your Mind' the focal point of the record.
Within a short time, the band had already started to get radio play. This was followed by live shows, which along with smaller club shows also included playing sold out shows at the O2 Academy 3 & the O2 Institute 3 in Birmingham. Videos from both of these shows are currently on the bands Youtube channel.
The band then released their debut music video for 'Make Up Your Mind'. With no help from record labels, marketing companies or PR gurus, the video gained over 1000 views within just 2 months and received praise from almost everyone who has viewed it and once again helped propel the band to the attention of more people around the world.
As the band move in to 2018, Sonder have already started off the year by being selected to support Fangclub and Fizzy Blood (who are consider two of the brightest emerging talents in the UK rock scene) as well as being courted by promoters for more slots with some of the countries biggest talents.
Sonder are currently writing new material and laying down plans to release a new single/E.P in the first quarter of the year, as well as releasing live session videos and playing many more shows and festivals around the United Kingdom.
