PANIC ROOM are a unique band, with a unique sound.
The 5 band members hail from very different backgrounds - Wales, Essex, Runcorn, and Singapore...
& This diversity of roots and influences has created a remarkable fusion of sound, evident in all 5 Award-Winning albums.
Powerful, hypnotic, compelling, with deep and memorable melodies...
Yet often playful and quirky.
Interweaving flavours of rock, pop, jazz, blues, folk, prog and world music, all combining to create a whole new genre.
Infamously hard to define, one eminent music journalist recently noted:
‘Many bands sound like their predecessors. PANIC ROOM only sound like PANIC ROOM’.
This was not a conscious move on the band’s part - they simply ‘Make the music we want to make... Wherever it takes us!’
But with 5 world-class musicians in one space, this can lead them down some fascinating paths.
And where the band go, their devoted fanbase will follow -
PANIC ROOM have a vast and booming community of worldwide fans, affectionally dubbed ‘the Roomies’!
In 2016, the fans helped PANIC ROOM to smash through their £25,000 target on PledgeMusic, which enabled the filming of their debut Live DVD in London.
This was one of the most successful UK crowdfunding campaigns of the year, and the band openly thank their ‘amazing’ supporters for making this possible.
