After leaving university in 2002 to focus their attentions on developing their musical ambitions The Call progressed rapidly, whilst finding their own unique sound. This culminated in the recording of their debut studio EP in autumn of 2005. The critically acclaimed 4 track EP entitled ‘Push On’ was voted by XFM listeners as recording of the week, resulting in the band gaining prime time airplay. Not satisfied with one major radio station airing the lead track, the band secured a live session on the Janice Long Show and as a result BBC Radio 2 play listed the full EP. Radio 1 also described them as “tunesmiths of the highest order”.
Industry interest, extensive live shows and the success of the debut prompted the band to offer up their second 4 track EP ‘Missing Pieces’ in the summer of 2007 . The maturing style of The Call lyrically and musically is clear in the latest release. With greater attention to detail the band embraced new recording techniques which have also spread to their exuberant live show.
Playing live is what The Call pride themselves on. Having supported the likes of Morning Runner and Electric Soft Parade at sell out Barfly shows, the band’s hard work & determination resulted in an appearance at The 02 Wireless Festival sharing the stage with The Who, The Flaming Lips and The Zutons. Further appearances include The Secret Garden & Wickerman Festivals playing alongside The Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Graham Coxon & Lilly Allen.
Committed to creating music with melody, spark and depth, The Callís aim is to break into the music mainstream and achieve their ambitions alongside some of the already established acts.
