The Zangwills are a young, North West based band with members from Warrington, Chester and Northwich. They formed in May 2017, Jake Vickers, Ed Dowling and Sam Davies met at sixth form college in Northwich, Cheshire and the line-up was completed by drummer Adam Spence from Chester.
Each of them bring very different influences to the band and this, along with Jake’s unique voice, is reflected in their distinctive sound which is instantly recognisable as The Zangwills. Described as being, ‘Like nothing else out there, an immensely valuable quality when so many bands disappear into a slurry of sameness’ – by Getintothis.
They are a charismatic band who are generating a lot of interest as their unusual, youthful vibe and energy sets them apart. The four-piece are fast gaining a reputation for their strong live sets, steadily increasing the capacity of host venues around their North West base. They have a growing army of enthusiastic followers who seem to be prepared to travel in significant numbers to watch them play live and can somehow already sing along to the lyrics even before the tracks are released.
The band’s debut single ‘New Heights’ was released in December 2017 with great feedback from press and industry connections and most importantly – audiences. Their follow up single – The Horrors Of Sobriety – is out on Friday, 30th March 2018.
