Concrete Disco make live electronic music, bringing the raw energy of a live band to the world of electronic music. Having recently relocated from London to Bristol to raise a new generation of ravers, 2020 sees new single Stop the Clocks released in April, and more material forthcoming throughout the year. Combining the beats and bass of dance music with the glitches of electronic music and a punk sensibility, the band have forged an original and powerful sound. As a live act, the trio have an infectious energy which spills over into their recordings and never fails to get hearts pumping and feet stomping.
Formed in 2010, the band consists of multi-instrumentalist and chief songwriter Jonny Falls Over, alongside brothers Joe (keys/laptop) and Dom (drums/samplers). They have built up a dedicated following in taking their high-octane show to venues such as Glastonbury Festival, Secret Garden Party, The Nest and The Roundhouse, supporting Deadmau5, Modestep, Plump DJs, Beardyman and others along the way. Having honed their sound in the studio and on stage, the band released their debut album, Work for your Living, Play for your Life, in 2014 followed by the Skyways EP in late 2016. Their second LP This Great Future came out in late 2018 and saw the band exploring lyrical themes of modern living alongside the hard hitting sound they have developed. 2020 sees more material being released, continuing to chart new territory for the band.

Having started out spinning D&B records and sharing the stage with such luminaries of the scene as Skibba and Shabba, Joe made the progression into producing whilst studying at university and formed experimental outfit No Remote which featured future Concrete Disco member Jonny Falls Over.
Drums, drum pads, vocals
The untamed backbone of the band, Dom cut his musical teeth amongst the spit and sweat of the country's punk clubs, whilst playing for the band, Southport. As brothers, Joe and Dom grew up making music together and fighting for sibling supremacy, but put their differences aside (mostly) to form a band together. Providing the perfect foil for the electronic polish of the samples and synths, Dom pounds the drums with unrivalled power and savagery whilst maintaining metronomic accuracy.

Guitar, synths, laptop, vocals
Multi-instrumentalist and chief songwriter, Jonny, began producing in his early teens when he built a studio computer from the discarded parts of old family desktops, recording any sounds he could find to create his music. After meeting Joe whilst studying together, he joined forces with the brothers in their musical quest, united by a passion for live electronic music.
