“Spot-on pop” – Richard Kingsmill, Triple J
Number Station are a 5-piece indie pop/rock band from Melbourne, consisting of Chris Andrews (vocals, synth) and Marcus Smith (guitars), Tom Beardsworth (guitars, keys), Jesse Burchat (bass) and David Amphlett (drums). Their debut EP, ‘Everything Will Change’, was released in May 2012.
Recorded between sessions at Collingwood’s Red Door Sounds and in their home studio, Everything Will Change was mixed by Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Grizzly Bear, TV on the Radio) at DNA Downtown in New York, the studio where The Strokes recorded Is This It. The first single, Hold On, was also produced by Paul “Woody” Annison (Red Riders, Young Revelry, Children Collide).
Between December 2011 and March 2012, Number Station embarked on an ambitious release schedule, launching three singles and their first video clip (directed by ARIA Award-winning director Bart Borghesi), for single ‘Hold On’.
Founding members Chris & Marcus have been songwriting partners for over 10 years and also wrote the soundtrack for SBS documentary The Last Pechenuik (from the series ‘Hybrid Life’) under the moniker ‘Cypher’.
Number Station are previous winners of Triple J Unearthed and have performed at major festivals such as ‘Homebake’ and ‘Come Together’.
The band are currently working on a brand new single, due out in October this year.
