Samoans at Reading Festival 2012
Math rockers pulling in the numbers
Taking influences from bands such as Reuben, Maps & Atlases and Biffy Clyro, the trio of Samoans export progressive math rock from the heart of Wales. While none of the members originate from the city, the group come from Cardiff and were noticed by Jen Long for BBC Introducing in Wales, who got them in for a live session.
Samoans juggle melodic and uptempo moments to perfection and their live shows are a reflection of their boundless energy and attention to detail. The band have already shared stages with And So I Watch You From Afar, The Xcerts, The Airborne Toxic Event and Los Campesinos!
