A Lingfield, Surrey indie rock four-piece band (now based in Guildford and studying at the Academy of Contemporary Music) calling themselves “Sweet Revenge” delivered a superior performance at the Surrey Young Superstars Award this year, held at the upscale Guildford Harbour hotel on Sunday, May 8th.
The young band won a contest organized by the Academy of Contemporary Music and Surrey Young Superstars, to be selected to play at this important local event celebrating young people of Surrey.
The aim of the award is to celebrate the hard work and achievements of those aged between 5 and 19. Presented by HM Lieutenant of Surrey, Michael More-Molyneux, the day was a huge success and the entire audience were amazed by the young ACM’ers in “Sweet Revenge”
Aly Duff, voice tutor at the Academy explained why she chose the band to perform at the event,
“I first saw this band when I was on a Discovery and Development panel at the music college. Not all of the band members attend the college, but all of the musicians are young, incredibly talented and are already working at a high standard, despite their age. They have obviously worked hard and are totally committed to their project. The performance was fresh and exciting and certainly woke the panel of judges up! I look forward to watching the band’s journey to success…”
“Sweet Revenge” comprised of singer Freddie Wortley, Kam Stocks on bass, Max Thilo on guitar and Josiah Kirpalani on drums, have recently released a new track, entitled “Bite The Bullet.” They play bold and expressive self-written garage punk sounds that seem influenced by early British rhythm and blues. “Bite the Bullet” reminds us of Razorlight perhaps crossed with embryonic Rolling Stones.
