Different People are a 4 piece alternative rock band from Essex, blending rock with a punk spirit, heavier moments akin to the 90's grunge scene and with massive soaring melodies. Formed in the early part of 2014, the band consists of lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Matthew Whitta, lead guitarist Lee Sambridge, bassist Alissa Owen, and drummer David Nolan. The band soon began making a name for themselves on the Essex and London live circuit with their high energy live sets and engaging performances, supporting Scouting For Girls in November of 2014.
After forging an alliance with Backwater Channel Records the band released their debut EP in 2016 entitled Picture Perfect. Having since returned to the studio the band have been busy developing their sound and crafting new songs and have recently re-emerged with a collection of new material with a brand new single entitled Best Before Used By and its accompanying video (directed by Kana Waiwaiku) scheduled for release in Spring 2017. This new track finds the band venturing into broader territory both musically and lyrically, providing a hint of what's to come with the next EP which is due later in the year.
