One Free Ride Indie rock band are six Mancunian lads that have been brought together through different bands / projects. Mid 2013 they began to put together the beginnings of this Manchester outfit. 4 track EP (‘All Around’) has been completed and the album is underway (as at 2016).
It uses creative songwriting, catchy hook line guitars, big rhythm sections and distinctive soothing meaningful vocals; which combined bring their sound to life. Just a hint of old 90s mixed up with modern as perceived through the eyes of the band-members. With a wealth of experience, the guys have been writing, recording, producing and mixing their own self titled EP with the first single ‘Step Inside’. They have also been working at rehearsals and are ready for more live shows now. Thinking of booking?

Indie rock is a subgenre of rock music that originated in the United States, United Kingdom and New Zealand from the 1970s to the 1980s. Originally used to describe independent record labels, the term became associated with the music they produced and was initially used interchangeably with alternative rock or “guitar pop rock”.
In the 1980s, the use of the term “indie” (or “indie pop”) started to shift from its reference to recording companies to describe the style of music produced on punk and post-punk labels. During the 1990s, grunge and punk revival bands in the US and Britpop bands in the UK broke into the mainstream and the term “alternative” lost its original counter-cultural meaning.
The term “indie rock” became associated with the bands and genres that remained dedicated to their independent status.
By the end of the 1990s, indie rock developed several subgenres and related styles, including lo-fi, noise pop, emo, slowcore, post-rock and math rock. In the 2000s, changes in the music industry and the growing importance of the internet enabled a new wave of indie rock bands to achieve mainstream success, leading to questions about its meaningfulness as a term.
