Alternative electronic music perfect for the melancholic, angry and confused people who are just simply floating about in space. Because i guess that’s what i can be sometimes, it’s also for people who are misunderstood and anyone that will listen to me chat shit.
I’m Cody and im a 23 year old singer/music maker and tattooer from the north-west of the UK, in a little milltown called Burnley. I’ve been singing since i was able to talk! My mum was a singer and pulled me on stage sometimes (not my finest hour). I used to post covers weekly on youtube when from being about 13 and gradually built a following. When I was a teenager I used to busk in Manchester with a nylon guitar covered in band stickers with no microphone, it definitely had its challenges!
I’ve been working on my own songs properly for about 5 years now with my producer Dan Weller and working different, mind numbing retail jobs until finally being able to pursue my second dream, tattooing. I Just released my first two singles “Verbal Warnings” and “High/Bye”.
Q & A.
Wow, this is a big question, I started out finding My Chemical Romance’s “Welcome to the Black Parade” on a computer that we’d been given when I was about 9/10? This was the first band I ever got into, this lead to a love of all things emo and that sort of evolved into me getting into heavier stuff (Slipknot, Korn, Parkway Drive) Then I found Enter Shikari, who are one of my biggest influences. Later i got into reggae and ska (The Skints, Jeramiah Ferrari) and now *finally breathes* I’m quite into like, 100 gecs?

The song Verbal Warnings was one of the first songs I wrote! It’s actually about 4 years old!
YOU ARE SENT TO MARS, NO CHECK-IN BAGGAGE AND YOU CAN TAKE ONE RECORD. WHICH ONE?
Probably the Lost Boys movie soundtrack, best film and best movie score of all time.
IF YOU WERE TO BE DESCRIBED AS AN ANIMAL, WHICH WOULD YOU BE?
Maybe one of those skinny dogs that have a “nervous” jacket on.
WE ARE PROUDLY SUBCULTURE INSPIRED. HOW ABOUT YOU?
Me too! I’ve been through a couple of phases all taking inspiration from past subcultures, i loved punk, emo and even have a little goth in me sometimes. Not just in fashion, but also music and art, i think they are all connected though really, you can’t have one without the other.
