Other Left are a female fronted Rock/Funk band from Nottingham. They officially formed in mid 2007 when Francesca Bandino (Vocals) responded to an advert posted by long time friends and jamming buddies David Langley (Guitar), Matt Searston (Drums) and Joe Ward (Bass).
Their sound is rooted in a Red Hot Chili Peppers style of funk rock blended with influences ranging from Traditional Jazz, Trip-hop, Classic Funk and of course, plenty of Rock.
They premiered their first material in September 2007 to a very appreciative audience. In January 2008 they recorded their first EP at a local studio entitled ‘Reborn EP’ which was sold at Select-a-Disc in Nottingham. Since then they have been gigging around Nottingham refining their sound at venues such as The Rescue Rooms, The Bodega Social, Muse, The Maze as well as a slot at the Riverside Festival and events such as the Global Weekend. They have gained recognition from local audiences, promoters, newspapers and Nottingham’s top radio station Trent FM, even playing a gig for them in conjunction with Castle College and recording a short live lounge session/interview for their New Music Podcast.
Their second EP ‘Press Start’ was recorded in summer 2009 and is now available.
Other Left continue to gig around Nottingham’s top venues and already have some exciting plans for 2010.
