Share: Artist Profile
** 485C CARRY ON ADDING UP THE NUMBERS! **
** THIRD SINGLE RELEASED 12.05.17! **

A blushing ride of a fierce panda one sheet

The Band: 485C

The Tunes: ‘BETTER THE MAN’ / ‘OH RHIANNA’

The Format: DOWNLOAD SINGLE

The Label: fierce panda

The Release Date: MAY 12TH 2017 The iTunes Link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/better-the-man-single/id1222573171

The Truth: 485C are still very much five rock’n’rolling dreamers lurking at the far Eastern end of the Central Line. They consist of Adam Hume (vocals), Dom Watson (guitar / vocals), Lucas Hunt (drums), Rory McGowan (guitar / occasional vocals) and Sam Watkins (bass / occasional vocals). ‘Better The Man’ / ‘Oh Rhianna’ is their third digital single release following last year’s teeth-rattlingly ace ‘She’ll Lie’ Autumnal debut and the gnarly New Year yowl out that was ‘Strange Medicine’.

Even in these times of digital trickery this constitutes a classically old-fashioned double AA-side single: ‘Oh Rhianna’ is a beefy alt.rock.pop stropout which neatly encapsulates the jagged 485C journey thus far, while ‘Better The Man’ shows a slinkier side to the quintet, with subtle guitar flicks and spacious grooves carefully building to an immense sonic denouement lasting fully 42 seconds.

Either way, the end result is a genuine let’s-do-the-show-right-here-gang armed with teenage cheekbones and a cheekily ragged demeanour who have performed for Disorder at The Old Blue Last, for Jack Saunders at The Social, for The Sherlocks in Milton Keynes, for John Kennedy in Tooting, for This Feeling at Nambucca and for the hell of it at The Horn in St Albans.

Pantone fans will of course instantly recognise 485C as the colour code for post boxes, Routemaster buses and indeed the Central Line which carries them all the way back home to the far, far east. Now come see 485C paint the town a certain hue here and there:

APRIL 20TH LONDON ST PAUL’S Vinyl Bar (TheZineUK Music Social No.5)
MAY 6TH HANWELL HOOTIE (Viaduct Meadow Stage)
MAY 11TH LONDON STOKE NEWINGTON Waiting Room (w/ Lightning Year)
MAY 25TH LONDON ISLINGTON The Islington (Abbie McCarthy's Good Karma night w/ Blinders) MAY 19TH BRIGHTON East Street Tap (The Great Escape)

“Uncompromising and unique, 485C’s rough rock sound is laced with artsy elegance…One of the most intriguing and promising bands out there, with a mad future ahead of them.”
