Sounds like a Storm are the rapturous Leeds-based indie-rock ensemble comprised of Sennen Ludman, Joseph Schofield, Cormac Connolly and Connor Passey. They have become known and respected throughout the UK for their dedicated work ethic, articulated sound and galvanising live shows.

Three studio singles in, SLAS are working tirelessly to perfect an increasingly rapidly growing catalogue of pure gritty voraciousness, in the form of intense drums, intricate riffs and deeply encapsulating breakdowns.

Sounds like a Storm have taken their lyrical renaissance of topics that matter to vivacious crowds at Live at Leeds, Tramlines and the BBC Radio 1 stage at Reading and Leeds Festival. SLAS have also supported the likes of Twisted Wheel, King No-One, The Blinders, Judas and more with no sign of slowing down.

Halfway 2 Nowhere - Artist of the weekend

This weekend marks the best three days in the British music calendar as Reading and Leeds Festivals take place. We have picked one artist, opening up the Radio 1 Stage, as our artist of the weekend who you simply cannot miss – they’re Leeds band Sounds Like a Storm.

For about 2 years now, we’ve followed this four-piece grow from a generic rock band, to one of the most exciting bands in England. On Friday they will open up the whole festival down in Reading before playing to, an anticipated huge crowd at Bramham Park in Leeds. Ahead of the band’s biggest sets of their life (potentially opening for Bring Me the Horizon!) we spoke to frontman Sennen Ludman to find out just what this opportunity means to Sounds Like a Storm.
