Description

We are on the look out for a guitarist to join our band South Social. This is an exciting time for us with alot of gigs in the pipeline, the realease of our debut live EP and we are just about to record an EP at the beginning of May. We are also hoping to do some festivals in the summer and more gigs so we need someone who is able to commit. The reception for us has been really positive and we have had great feedback from the audience with several venues asking us to come back and headline.

About the music

We are a 5 piece (vocals/Ukele, guitarist x 2, bassist and drums) putting together original catchy tunes centred around catchy lyrics. I began writing my songs on a Ukele in the middle of the lock down capturing my thoughts and feelings in my lyrics and songs: The breakdown of a relationship, fetishisation and microaggressions received from men, the one night stands you want to remember (not the one's you want to forget) and your partners ex who keeps popping up and liking their Instagram posts are just a few subjects to name a few.

About the band
We are all in our 30s and have alot of fun at rehearsals cause we all get along super well. I am really keen to get someone in who can keep the nice chilled vibes going but who can focus when we need to get our heads down. Escapism from our boring 9 to 5 met with a good dynamic is essential for us.

Influences
Inspired by noughties rock, ska music and soulful pop, bringing the influential sounds of Bloc Party, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Amy Winehouse and Alabama Shakes with relatable and nostalgic moments that will get stuck in your head forever.

Your commitment

As guitarist you will alternate between lead and rhythm. Although I write all the songs, the whole band are part of bringing the songs to life. We are all full-time workers but dedicate one 4 hour rehearsal every 1-2 weeks. We are based in South East London and rehearse at superunison studios in Peckham. Or sometimes pirate studio in Croydon when we need to so you need to be able to travel to both. Rehearsals take place in the week. We also share payment for rehearsals between whoever is rehearsing on that day.

If this sounds of interest to you send me a message and a link to a few videos of you playing for us to gauge whether its the right fit.

We have audition slots on the following days and time:

Tuesday 14th May - Peckham - 7:45pm, 8:30pm
Wednesday 15th May - Brockley - 8:00pm, 8:45pm

Otherwise we might have 21st May also available.

Do get back to me asap with your contact number if you can make either.
