MIMR Band Chat: Estates

Band Chat returns for the new year with the 1st of many acts to feature on MIMR in 2020. We begin with indie 3 piece Estates who are one of the most promising new bands around and are touted by many to have a very bright future.

We spoke to the band about their music, influences and future plans

MIMR: Thanks for taking the time out to speak to us, who are Estates and how best would you describe your music?

Estates: Estates are a 3-piece consisting of Mark Bowman, Ben Richardson & Rory McColgan. We describe our music as dancefloor indie music with a bit of an edge.

MIMR: A new year is always a time of reflection, what were your favourite moments as a band in 2019?

Estates: Well, 2019 was the year of ESTATES with our debut single being released 1st November of which had a better welcome than we had first imagined. We’re still pretty fresh to the scene with not too much to look back on but looking forward to playing some new tunes.

MIMR: What’s the latest with the band and what will this year bring?

Estates: Were pretty much just taking every step as it takes us and trying to move forward with our music and currently back in the studio recording some stuff for a springtime release. We’ve also been working pretty hard to get ourselves playing some live music too, with a few festival slots along the way.

MIMR: Do you have any new year’s resolutions?

Estates: Due to being fresh out the womb, we just want to make sure to push ourselves whilst were still living in the city and making the most of opportunities and contacts that we have.

MIMR: If you could tour with any band, past or present, which one would it be and why?

Estates: Were a band of huge influences so would love to play with bands from MGMT, The Velvet Underground, Fountains DC to the Strokes

MIMR: It’s been a pleasure having you on the blog, good luck in 2020. How can people follow you on social media?

Estates: Our social media tag is @estates_band and were on all standard social media platforms.

They play at the next Free Vibes gig at Band On The Wall later this month, all details are here.
