Partisan, to me, are a true chameleon within the #indie music scene. They are a band of many colors and talents, almost changing styles from song to song while retaining that certain something that makes Partisan the ‘partisans’ of music with an originality most bands strive for. This goes for their latest single titled ‘Oxygen’. The track continues the diverse future legacy of the power trio from Manchester in a limitless capacity that is music for the world. Partisan truly are an #indie act designed for a global audience.
Partisan formed in Manchester, UK, early 2013. As the name implies they are passionate about their cause, which is to inject some authentic rock into the limelight, as serious contenders to pick up the music scene with punchy, bold and unflinching rock anthems!
The band’s members are Stuart Armstrong (lead vocals and guitar), Dan Albon (bass guitar) and Leo Stanfield (drums). Founding member Stuart Armstrong (lead vocals and guitar) left his previous band Six10Repeater, that disbanded in 2012 but returned to the scene with Partisan working on new material with his rock edge and progression from Six10.
They have achieved numerous accolades including being awarded as ‘Best Unsigned Band’ by XFM in 2009, two tracks, Hearts and Nails and Today Somehow featured Pro Evolution Soccer, supported prominent bands such as Nine Black Alps, Baby Shambles, Status Quo and The Damned as well as being reviewed by influential peers within the industry, Mark Radcliffe, and BBC Introducing.
The band has recorded and released many rock anthems, including the very popular Two Lovers, Ashes, Today Somehow and Juggernaut in recent years. Now signed to GAS Music they are releasing Oxygen in 2018. They have had the pleasure of working with notable producers, Jim Spencer, Christophe – Oxygene Studios and Mike Bennett.
They have had an exciting year, playing gigs and festivals such as The British Sound Project, Victoria Warehouse, and Sonder Fest. They have plans of further gigs and hoping to return to the US next year, after a fantastic response when they played Pianos in New York and Whisky a Gogo in Los Angeles in late 2016.
