A flushing tirade of a fierce panda one sheet

The Band: 485C

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

The Format: DOWNLOAD SINGLE

The Label: fierce panda

The iTune Link: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/better-the-man-single/id1222573171

The 'Better The Man' video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSn3OqYTc4g

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: ‘Better The Man’ showed a slinkier side to the quintet earlier in the spring, with subtle guitar flicks and spacious grooves carefully building to an immense sonic denouement lasting fully 42 seconds. Now the flipside ‘Oh Rhianna’ reveals itself to be a thoroughly beefy alt.rock.pop stropout which neatly encapsulates the jagged 485C journey thus far, not least with the opening couplet of "I was lying half awake to a silent crowd / There was lipstick on his moral highground."

Either way, the end result is a genuine let’s-do-the-show-right-here-gang armed with teenage cheekbones and a raggedly artistic demeanour who have performed for Disorder at The Old Blue Last, for The Sherlocks in Milton Keynes, for John Kennedy in Tooting, for Abbie McCarthy at the Islington Islington, for a thoroughly rammed out panda room at The Great Escape and for BBC Music Day at Flashback Records.

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. Come see the band get vagabonding here:

AUGUST 9TH CAMDEN LOCK TAVERN
(Live Nation Scource Night w/ Hot Dreams + Will Sin For Love)

SEPTEMBER 1ST - 3RD HERTFORDSHIRE WILKESTOCK FESTIVAL
(with Razorlight, Yak, The Sherlocks, Carl Barat and many more)
“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.”
