"Hailing from Sheffield, England this duo makes experimental alternative pop with a bit of a melancholy edge. Standing somewhere in between perhaps Phoenix and Empire Of The Sun" (Design Collector).
Explorers first started making music at media college with a shared love of sampling old ELO, Latin & BBC sound effects records mainly from charity shops and adding beats, film samples and melodies to them!, this soon matured into more structured songs with a more organic musical approach full of nostalgia but with a forward thinking sound.
They have just self released there debut E.P "Souvenirs", 2012 which has received high praise from BBC Radio 6 (Tom Robinson) & BBC Introducing, for the songs "Ticket Home" and "Wait Up here".
Whilst self promoting as much as possible they are currently working on new songs and live shows.
