Meet The Band: Mesmeriser
Festival season is upon us, and with it Stoked In The Park, London (featuring Yolanda Be Cool), and Stoked In The Park Pamplona. We want to introduce you to the bands that will be playing at both Stoked In The Parks, as well as across other Stoke festivals and destinations this summer. Meet, Mesmeriser.
INTRODUCE YOURSELVES, WHO’S IN THE BAND?
We are Mesmeriser:
Myles Fischer – guitar, vocals, hair
Sam Barron – bass, backing vocals, guitar attempts
Oscar Sharah – drums, backing vocals, production wizardry
HOW WOULD YOU BEST DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE OF MUSIC?
Our music is a melting pot of psychedelic garage rock with touches of dream pop all over the place. Essentially our style is a mix of everything we love in music, which is ever growing and changing.
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS EUROPEAN SUMMER?
We could talk about all the awesome spots we’re going to visit and the crazy festivals we’re playing at, but I think it might be the fact that we have the CHANCE TO PLAY GIGS IN EUROPE FOR THE SUMMER!?!
Also, Oscar and Myles are looking forward to calling Sam a pleb every day because he’s never been to Europe before.
WHAT’S IN YOUR RIDER?
Sam has been personally guaranteed a Bloody Mary courtesy of Gus from Honey Hayze every morning. Apart from that, if it’s vaguely cold and vaguely delicious then we’ll be just fine. Oh, and Myles needs his supply of Fisherman’s Friends for some reason.
WHO’S THE WORST BEHAVED IN THE BAND AND WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM THEM?
Sam is generally the worst behaved in the band with and an evil, drunken, Scottish alter ego by the name of Gregory being something to look forward to. However, give Myles a bottle of his precious Kraken rum and wait for the proverbial Kraken to be unleashed. Oscar is the wildcard, in that chaos could ensue provided that he makes it through the night.
