ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With ten instruments between them, there's never a dull moment when Indie-Polk duo Any O'Neill & CeeCee take to the stage.

Their debut EP packs all of the diverse soundscapes you'd expect from the duo throughout the 4 song journey. With a theme of anguish over life choices running throughout, CeeCee reflects on her own journey through the band. "The EP hits very personally with me, as before the band, I'd been a little disillusioned with what life expected of me. Finding the band, and realising I could live life how I wanted and not how society dictated, was a revelation!"

With a topic of living morally & ethically featured in the lead track Spellbound Or Hellbound, the duo found themselves with a dilemma. "How could we record a song like that using equipment that is made by cheap labour in foreign countries?" Asks Any. "Well we couldn't. So what we decided to do, was to make the EP in the most ethically moral way possible." This meant that instead of entering a studio to record, they got out the soldering irons and started making their own recording equipment. Microphone preamplifiers, equalizers, compressors were built alongside all manner of cables and gadgets.. and even their own instruments! With a special mention to a suitcase drumkit that now joins them on the road. Anything that couldn't be built was sourced second hand, and with some fairtrade tea & sugar, the EP was produced, recorded & mixed by the band in a little over two weeks.

Initially, a chance meeting at midnight on New Year's 2013 marked the serendipitous birth of the band. "I couldn't find the girl I was supposed to be meeting in an overcrowded Central London," Any says, "Alone & nearing the strike of twelve, CeeCee dragged me up to join her celebrations instead. Discovering a shared interest in music we quickly decided to join musical forces!"

Initially a 7 piece, the band slowly morphed into a duo. "When a band member couldn't make a rehearsal or gig, one of us would fill in their parts." recalls Any, "Until one day we realised that we could fill all the musical parts ourselves as a duo. From that moment, we knew we were on to something special!"

With their debut EP now released & over a hundred gigs scheduled around the UK in the next 12 months, it's a busy time for the duo. "Playing live is what we live for," states CeeCee, "We're dying to get back out there and show everyone what we've been working on in the studio. I've never been more proud."

A lot of our lyrics touch on social commentary" Any says, "And that's important to us. We think of songs as snapshots of life happening around us. " "Performing is where my heart lies," CeeCee continues, "and getting to meet an array of different people with a plethora of stories and exploring all sorts of random towns & places. It's what puts a smile on my face every day!"
