- Hailing from South London, CALM is an alternative band consisting of four early twenty-somethings
- Self-produced debut single ‘VIVID’ is the band’s first release to date
- The track offers a supremely catchy chorus, bass riffs reminiscent of The Smiths, and an overall feel of the best of Peace, circa ‘Happy People‘
CALM are a four-piece alternative outfit based in South London, combining elements of anthemic nineties Britpop with slick grooves to positively catchy effect.
Described as a ‘coming of age’ debut, ‘VIVID’ was self-produced and written by the band’s frontman Adam James, which (we have to say) is pretty impressive to say the least. The track oozes with the confidence of a band ready to rattle some sizeable cages, and will have you echoing the contagious ‘I’m so vivid’ chorus line whilst doing your dishes.
