[debut] is more than a band. It’s a music and art collective with an ever-changing cast. Fronted and directed by songwriter/producer, Gareth Thomas, [debut] lies somewhere between electro pop and alternative rock, delivering soundscapes that are cinematic and challenging yet at the same time, accessible and emotive.
[debut] began as a solo project and the first two studio albums were instrumental, electronic outings fueled by Thomas’s love of analog synths and experimental music. Many of the tracks from “Soaked” (2006) and “Set to Zero” (2010) have since been featured in film and TV placements.
2015 sees the release of the first full, song based [debut] album. “Postcards From Berlin” was fan-funded through Kickstarter crowd-funding and recorded in Los Angeles and Berlin throughout 2014. This dark and intense collection of epic alternative rock features nine songs with a hidden bonus track on the limited edition CD.
