Indie Pop Band Express Office Portico Shares Debut EP 'Incommunicado'

Nottingham-based band Express Office Portico is known for blending melodic pop hooks, gritty indie vibes, and analog synth layers to create a sound that's uniquely theirs. With their debut EP, 'Incommunicado', they invite listeners to challenge norms.

Produced by the acclaimed Joshua Rumble, 'Incommunicado' is a perfect mix of infectious pop melodies with raw indie instrumentation. The EP's lead single, 'He Said She Said', serves as a shining example of the band's genre-defying approach, featuring driving drums, plucky basslines, and vibrant guitar tones that converge to create an electrifying listening experience.

At the heart of 'Incommunicado' lies a deeply introspective exploration of themes such as childhood trauma, substance abuse, and unstable relationships. Inspired by Sylvia Plath's poem of the same name, the EP delves into the complexities of human emotion and the struggle to connect with oneself and others in an increasingly disconnected world. Yet, amidst the somber undertones, there's a glimmer of hope - a belief that self-isolation is not the answer, but rather a stepping stone towards healing and understanding.

With every release, Express Office Portico continues to garner praise from critics and fans alike. Their unique blend of pop sensibility and rock influences has earned them airplay on BBC Introducing and playlisting on BBC Radio Nottingham, catapulting them into the spotlight. Their energetic live performances have captivated audiences across Nottingham, with sold-out shows at renowned venues like The Bodega and Rock City BETA.
