Let Me Introduce You To… Scanners

ScannersOne of my new favourite tracks is “Salvation” by Scanners.

Scanners? Never heard of them before?

Well, then, let me introduce you to them!

The band from London, England, was formed in 2004. The first album, “Violence is Golden”, which was recorded in the bedrooms of different flats as they moved around the city, was released in 2006; “Submarine” followed in 2010. Matthew Mole (vocals and guitar), Sarah Daly (vocals), Amina Bates (guitar), Ben Grillon (bass) and Harry Lane (drums) are signed by label owner and DJ Steve Aoki to his indie label Dim Mak and have supported bands like The Horrors, Devo, The Mystery Jets, The Charlatans UK, Silversun Pickups, The Wedding Present, Electric Six, Juliette and the Licks and Forward Russia. Scanners have played at SXSW festival and recorded two live sessions for XFM.

Their absolutely amazing songs “Salvation” and “Baby Blue” appeared in many TV shows and therefore have reached a huge audience.

“Love is Symmetry”, the third album is now available on iTunes and Amazon in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and it’s going to be released everywhere else on June 10th.
