Embankment, a newly formed indie-rock band from Essex, have released their first single “Beautiful Losers”. The song was released on Friday after three months of waiting to release it.
Alex Blackman, Joe Bodfield and Harry Boon decided to come together in November to form the band after learning to play the instruments. Alex, who wrote the song in Easter 2017, said that the idea to form a band came two years ago before they could even play the instruments.
Front man Alex said that Beautiful Losers came about after he played the keyboard and loved the sound of the harp. The song is about going through rough patches of your life and how you can manage and push through it all. Alex said that he “felt the song had to be written and it’s just one of of them”.
Embankment aspire to be a band of the 20’s and hope that their album in the future is iconic and one which people talk about. They plan to release their album in 2021 but say it’s not yet been confirmed.
Since the song has been released, the band have received incredible feedback already. Audiences have complimented the band for ‘using their own style’ and being ‘different’. The band wish to release an EP in September but have not yet confirmed it.
Beautiful Losers is available on Spotify, Youtube and iTunes.
