Emerging as one of the most exciting new bands from Kent, Next to Mountains have developed a signature blend of driving rhythms, soaring vocals and blistering guitar work that draws comparisons with the best of modern indie bands yet harkens back to the golden age of Brit Pop and 90s alternative with both reverence and a fresh perspective.
Originally set to launch in Spring 2020 with a full schedule of dates booked across the South East, like many other artists, Covid put the brakes on plans yet the band reed active during this time. In Summer 2020, Next to Mountains launched their debut EP ‘Early Days’ across all major platforms and garnered widespread acclaim and radio play all over the UK and even across the pond, featuring on shows as far away as Portland Oregon and Canada.
Following a reshuffle in the line-up and taking the time to further develop their sound, Next to Mountains are firmly back on the scene and are excited to share their music with live audiences across the country and beyond. Featuring an all original set list designed to get audiences moving with big indie rock anthems and dance floor hooks, Next to Mountains deliver a performance with passion and rock ‘n roll swagger.
