Forming in 2018, The Taboo Club are entirely of their own, comprising of and expressing the values of its individual members to create something heart-breakingly cathartic- a sound that commands attention and welcomes intimacy.

A consortium of artists based in and around the West Midlands, The Taboo Club write as one unit to compose music that blends, breaks and banishes musical conventions across many genres by embracing the gothic sensibilities of world music and art to create a sound that can only be described as cinematic.

Writing this away allows a true blend of genres, ideas, perspectives and instrumentation to come together, so instead of pandering to what's popular the band is instead inspired and informed by what each member brings to the table. It's this relationship that sets The Taboo Club apart from many artists- the ability to collaborate and have every member have a say on the sound instead of one person running the show.

The band consists of Rob Lilley (vocals), Jack Ingaglia (guitar), Ben Oerton (sax/keys), Aiden Price (drums) and Joshua Rochelle-Bates (bass).

Recorded and mixed by Ryan Pinson, ‘Strangers’ is the first single from the outfit and is now available on Spotify, Soundcloud and Bandcamp.

The single precedes a special and intimate show at The Victoria in Birmingham on the 29th of September, where the band will be making their headline debut with a show that promises to be evocative, atmospheric and unique.

After this, the band will be playing more shows and building up to a physical release slated for late 2019.

‘’Nestled somewhere between the low lit bourbon dive bars of Harlem and an opiate pit of six string destruction that would make the Velvet Underground blush, The Taboo Club are a tapestry of genres and influences – driven by guitar, but with tinges of jazz, sax, and keys, giving the wall of sound a deep lustre.’’ Birmingham Review

‘’The Taboo Club are sprightly, sensual and – dare we say it – sexy.’’ Counteract Magazine

''Undoubtedly a classy affair, standing aside from much of what we are used to hearing out of B-town.'' Little Indie Blogs
