When Blue Bendy independently released debut single ‘Suspension’ in 2019, it caught the attention of producer Margo Broom – Fat White Family, Goat Girl – who understood the potential in that single and the pop experimentalism that needed to be conjured from the six piece. 2021’s ‘International’ and ‘Glosso Babel’, the first products of their work with Broom, established Blue Bendy as one of the most exciting bands emerging from South London.
Though crucially different from their South London peers, Nolan points out how that scene has allowed the band to grow and become more interesting, more sharp, more distinct – “I don’t think we would have progressed the way we had if we hadn’t been surrounded by those bands, and watching things shoot up around you. It makes you strive much harder.”
Blue Bendy are Arthur Nolan (vocals), Joe Nash (guitar), Harrison Charles (guitar), Olivia Morgan (keys and vocals), Sam Wilson (bass) and Oscar Tebbutt (drums)
