Having previously performed separately as math rock band ‘You Slut!’ amongst various others, The Four Fours formed out of a creative impulse, writing and producing ‘Count to Ten’ in under a week. The track has garnered considerable attention on the rock scene and is building momentum internationally.
‘Count to Ten’ has a typical rock sound, incorporating heavy guitar riffs, a gritty vocal and anthemic chorus. No stranger to the genre, the contagious track has infused sci-fi influences to develop a more layered piece. The desire to maintain a little mystery and embrace escapism is represented by the baboon masks you often find the band wearing as a way to separate themselves from reality.

The trio have all been members of other bands who have supported artists such as Bloc Party, Amusement Parks on Fire and MaybeSheWill. As well as recording in acclaimed studios, Rockfield Studios in Monmouth (The Stone Roses, Kasabian, Black Sabbath), and The Townhouse Studios in Shepherds Bush (Muse, Coldplay, Queen). As a result The Four Fours understand the industry and have had time and experience to perfect their craft and produce tracks of a high quality.
The Four Fours have received a colossal amount of praise for new single ‘Count to Ten’ both online and on radio gaining airplay on stations including: Rocker's Dive Radio (US), Code Zero Radio (US), Lonely Oak Radio (US), Rock 101 Radio (US), Hull Online Radio (UK), EGH Radio (UK) and UN.radio (UN.sung magazine‘s internet radio show).
Hoping to eclipse their previous successes, the potential for The Four Fours is fantastic and with the release of ‘Messing with History’ on the horizon, 2014 is proving to be an exciting year for the trio.
