I Heart Hiroshima is a three piece act from Brisbane, Australia; originally formed in July of 2005 at a house party. They are Matthew Somers (guitar/voice), Susie Patten (drums/voice) and Cameron Hawes (guitar/voice.) The band has developed a unique sound from their 'bass-less' band structure of two guitars and drums, combined with shared vocal duties from all three members. This decision to play without a bass contributes to I Heart Hiroshima's unique blend of infectious pop melodies and catchy riffs.
When is a band not a band? Perhaps when it's made up of disparate members whose combined musical heritage touches on orchestral, jazz, ska and, er, grime. With so many influences, and a frontman who "was never really into music" it's any wonder the four-piece ever got together. But here they stand ready to reveal the ingredients in their melting pot of ideas. Moving outside the M25 to Wellingborough may not sound like the first step on the MC career ladder.

Andrew Thiboldeaux and Chris Ward embody the two-man wall of sound; it‘s music that‘s been a long time building, rising out of the ether of left-behind evangelical childhoods (see Jesus Camp), best friendship (kindled as kids listening to The Chronic), and life in Philadelphia.

Ryan Green - drums Paul Gross - vocals/keyboards Zane Smythe - guitars/keyboards Nate Perry - bass/backup vocals Believe it or not, Manic didn’t want to get signed to Suretone, the new label of ex-Geffen president Jordan Schur. Not because they had something against them but they didn’t want their creativity stifled by a corporation. This band, who crafts lush, layered pop rock, wanted to do things on their terms and to be the masters of their own destiny.
