Basement....Beside Myself

Basement sound like they’re from California but this slick emo / rock band are actually from Ipswich.
Their music is a commercial take on the old emo sound — it reminded us of now-defunct Farewell My Enemy and bands of that ilk — who set the scene for bands such as Jimmy Eat World, My Chemical Romance and Taking Back Sunday (and latterly, English band Calls Landing, which included Congleton’s Charlie Thomas).
Basement take the underground sound and turn it commercial, so much so that in places it goes a bit Foo Fighters, and it is more straight-up rock than any subgenre of emo.
