The Squared formed in Bristol in 2015. Initially Phil Wilmott and Joe Rooney formerly of The Experimental Pop Band joining up with long time collaborator Mark Pope on keyboards. Prolific with with ideas from a wide range of influences, they put together a set of tracks, some as songs others instrumental with beats and keyboards. Looking to play live, they teamed up with singer Jim Johnston of Saturnines and Monk & Canatella and soloist, giving his melodic and dark vocals to the songs and Keith Bailey from Rabbits, Spoctet, EPB and Spaceways providing drums. The combination is an exciting mix providing a driving and languid set.
