We’re based in London (UK) and we recently released our Debut album ‘A Slight Distraction’ which is the culmination of many years of struggle in this business we call “show”
That’s not to say it’s been a tough time however, on the contrary.
We’ve played some amazing places with some great bands all over the UK & Europe, met some wonderful people and continue to do so to this day.
2013 is looking like a busy one for us what with lots of festivals booked and a whole new album’s worth of material ready to be unleashed.
All we have to do now is get it recorded somehow!
What we hope we bring to the table are catchy melodies juxtaposed with lyrics laden with pathos & humour in equal measures but we also hope to provoke thought. Ultimately though, only the listener can decide what a song is about and what it means to them.
We hope what we do means something to you anyway and if you head to our Facebook page and official site you can download 2 tracks from our album absolutely free…all we ask for in return is an open ear, an open mind and an open heart.
‘A Slight Distraction’ by ‘The Standards’ is available on gatefold CD with some amazing artwork from the official web site and all the usual digital suspects.
