Stereopod are a musical collaboration born in early 2013 out of a shared love of guitars and synths who blend elements of electronica, rock, metal and film soundtracks to create evocative soundscapes that take you on a journey, often to seldom traveled parts, sometimes returning, sometimes not..

The guys have been friends since school, and have collaborated informally on a number of occasions over the years but Stereopod is the first of these collaborations to be released into the wild. The band’s music distributed to date has been very well received. Currently a predominately studio based project, Stereopod are hoping to pull together a workable live rig which will allow them to bring an exciting audio ( and visual?) experience to audiences in the future. Lately, new equipment has been had, so new sounds can (and will) be delivered.

Stereopod have featured on various radio programs throughout the UK and have been lucky enough to find their way on to the ever growing list of “indie” bands on Manchester-based German Shepherd Record.

Stereopod also featured on the German Shepherd Records “Malawi” benefit album (an awesome compilation of true “indie” music for a great cause) with their song “Promise of The Future” in September 2016. It is a digital album for a minimum donation of £3 with all proceeds going towards aiding the current hunger crisis in Malawi album. It can be purchased here.

Stereopod’s album “Cinematopoeia” was then subsequently released on the same record label two weeks after Malawi. Again, it is a digital download (pay what you want) with 50% of all proceeds going towards supporting the Malawi cause and Scottish non-profit organization, Mary’s Meals who run the appeal. Their album can be found here.

The band would like to thank Bob Osbourne and Ian Moss from German Shepherd Records, Bryn Thorburn and The Screaming Love Collective, Melissa Gunn at Small Town Sounds, Grant Christian Henderson at Lovers Lane, and Brad Cain at Radio Nevis and all the DJs who played our music and anyone who listens and has encouraged us (that means you Ricky Henderson).

Stereopod are open to and encourage collaboration: they would be keen to work with video artists and filmmakers in particular but will consider anything that may require a soundtrack.
