The Routine have released their debut EP, named “Under The Circumstances”. With the EP being written and recorded during the pandemic, the band felt the title reflected life during the pandemic.
The Routine, hailing from London and across Cambridge, formed in 2019 . The band consists of Ben Taylor (lead guitar), Ben Nunn (bass) Mark Thomson (drums) and Liam Palmer (Vocals/guitar).
“Under the Circumstances” was recorded at Crooks Hall Studio after the band spent the last eighteen months or so developing their sound. The six-song EP highlights the bands versatility and dynamic sound and really shows the hard work of online writing sessions and is a feat the band should be proud of.
Taking influence from the likes of Feeder and The Foo Fighters,stand-out track “Come Knocking At My Bedroom Door” is filled with intricate guitar and a strong melody. “Too Many Times”, another solid track, was written to demonstrate frustration at the seemingly continual and never-ending lockdowns.
