Set No Sail are an alternative/indie band from East London. Formed in the Summer of 2012, the band have released two consecutive EP’s in the December of 2012 and 2013. Their 2013 release, Take It Easy, sees the 5 piece explore a more mature side to their sound, ready to take on 2014.
The band, made up of Elliot McAllister (vocals), Sam Deluca (guitar), Jordan Noon (guitar), Emmett Lilley (bass), and Sertac Dirik (drums), have performed in various venues across the country, including O2 Academy Islington and Camden’s Barfly. Playing alongside bands like Taking Hayley, Burn So Bright and The Oceans Eyes, Set No Sail have successfully generated a large and positive following within their local scene.
The quintet recently recorded at Soundlab Studio’s as part of the ‘Live At The Lab’ sessions. These sessions have also seen the likes of We Are The Ocean, Our People Versus Yours and In Dynamics take to it’s stage. Check out Set No Sail’s acoustic version of title track, Take It Easy, below!
With influences from Don Broco, Lower Than Atlantis and Seahaven, each member brings their own style to the table, which works particularly well recorded, and just as importantly, when delivered live.
Nelipott caught up with vocalist Elliott and drummer Sertac, to talk about what’s next for Set No Sail in 2014.
“We’ve released two EP’s so far, but the issue is they sound nothing like each other! We feel as though over the past year we’ve really changed, and slowly we’re finding our sound. We’re currently in progress of writing, so hopefully by the end of the year we’ll have some new content for you guys! We’re really excited about this year. We’re off away at uni, so despite progress being slower, there will definitely be new releases made.”
