In 2004, the Departure made their live debut in a pub in Northampton and were later signed to Parlophone records!
The Departure is 5 guys to watch out for!!!
They seem to be influenced by the Brit-pop sound and have been compared to Franz Ferdinand! Not surprisingly because the lead singer, David Jones, has the vocal arrangement of their lead singer Alex Kapranos! However some say that they sound a lot like the Cure!? Up to you…
“All mapped out” is quite a sleazy song – talking about relationships and passion. The song tests the listener and has jumpy guitar beats and for such a young band, they’re set to make a storm in the charts!
With a band name like The Departure they’re sure to take off in 2005/2006!
