A quintet spread out across the north east, Komparrison was formed by friends Elise Harrison and Kaitlyn Kempen. The duo spent five years writing and gigging as an acoustic act, before adding more members, Ellie, Jess & Elliott, to the line-up late in 2020 to grow the project and flesh out their sound.
Their debut single ‘Dancing With Demons’ was released in January 2021 and soon came to the attention of respected tastemakers such as BBC Music Introducing, This Feeling and NARC. Magazine.
Outwardly trading in feel-good indie and care-free attitudes, the band write songs with depth and startling observation to create an essential document of life as a working class woman in the North East.
Taking lyrical influence from such artists as Lily Allen and Orla Gartland, Komparrison have the confidence and ability to talk about taboo subjects in their storytelling. Their music also tips its hat to the best of British guitar bands, like Arctic Monkeys, Royal Blood and The Big Moon, as well as many from the Brit Pop era.
Support slots with Walt Disco, Martha Hill and The Lottery Winners - as well as explosive sets at Twisterella and Gathering Sounds - have helped establish the band as one of the north east's most exciting young acts.
As one of This Feeling's 'Big in 2022' bands and with the support of Chris Hawkins at BBC Radio 6 Music and John Kennedy at Radio X already under their belts, 2022 is shaping up to be some year for the band – particularly as their debut EP ‘You Say She’s Satisfied’ will be the first record of the press at Press On Vinyl, Middlesbrough’s brand new state of the art vinyl manufacturing plant: https://www.thelineofbestfit.com/news/latest-news/press-on-vinyl-announces-komparrisons-debut-ep-as-first-release
