Similar Bands To Fdt

  1. 1. -1 A very similar band to Fire Drive Tiger I found was Paramore. They are a four piece band, three boys and a girl as a lead singer and the lead singer also had red hair. Although I thought that some of their music was 'rockier' than Fire Drive Tiger as FDT are more pop, I found they had a very similar stage attitude too. Meaning their stage presence was very similar to FDT. A particular Paramore Video I have been focussing on is Misery Business. This video is set in a school and is about a girl who bullies all of the girls in her school and then gets her comeuppance at the end. It is in the genre of a teen film and is obviously aimed at this age group too. Because it is set in a school it is something the audience can relate to. Paramore: Paramore is an American rock band from Franklin, Tennessee, formed in 2004. Members are lead vocalist and keyboardist Hayley Williams, lead guitarist Josh Farro, bassist Jeremy Davis, drummer Zac Farro, and rhythm guitarist Taylor York. The group released their debut album All We Know Is Falling in 2005, and their second album, Riot! in 2007, which was certified Platinum in the US and Gold in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK. Brand New Eyes, Paramore's third album, was released on September 29, 2009. Brand New Eyes is the band's highest charting album to date. Ref: Wikipedia
  2. 2. Another similar band to Fire Drive Tiger is The Ting Tings. Although there is only two of them in the band and their style is a bit different their songs are quite similar. The Ting Tings is a Grammy-nominated English indie pop duo composed of Jules De Martino (drums, lead guitar, vocals, piano) and Katie White (vocals, guitar, bass drums, bass guitar, and cow bells). Originally from Hackney, London, they formed in December 2007 while based at Islington Mill Artist Studios in Salford. They have released four singles on their current label Columbia Records UK, including the single "That's Not My Name", which charted straight at number one in the UK Singles Chart on 18 May 2008.The album We Started Nothing was released on 19 May 2008 and charted at number one in the United Kingdom. Ref: Wikipedia Another band I found that I felt was similar to Fire Drive Tiger was Evanescence. Although they are more metal that rock/pop they have the same construction with male backing and a female lead and in there videos they also veer away from the man eater sex side of the media. They focus on the social minorities and appeal to those who feel like outcasts. This is similar to what we wish to do with our music video.
