About us

Centrefolds are Tom Corneill (guitar/vocals), Phil Smith (guitar/vocals), Rich Beeby (bass/backing vocals) & Martin Iles (drums)

Following critically aclaimed 7 track EP ‘Fashion’, Centrefolds (based in Bath, UK) grabbed the attention of BBC Introducing, NME, BBC 6 Music, Absolute Radio, Fred Perry Subculture, BBC Radio 2 and Hype Machine. With appearances at Glastonbury Festival, support to major national bands throughout the UK and airplay worldwide already in their back pockets there is no doubt Centrefolds have made their mark on the music industry. Inspired by elements they love from the guitar world and the electronic one in equal measures whilst combining massive pop hooks, palpitating beats, raw and angular guitars with hypnotic synths and dreamy textures have enabled Centrefolds the ability to feed your ears with their blend of ‘anglo-Indie-dance-punk-euphoric-neon-pop-rock’

“This band have the ability to craft addictive melodies while crossing genres” – Fred Perry Subculture

In terms of influences, there’s a bit of a journey to cover but it goes a little something like this… if Foals & Radiohead went out for a few drinks but bumped into Everything Everything and LCD Soundsystem on the way, you’d get part of the picture. Thing is, on the way back they stumbled into Ryan Adams & Patrick Watson in the kebab shop who were having a deep & meaningful conversation over a Chicken Doner about the illicit relations between Elbow and Queens of the Stone Age. It had all been a tremendous affair and got a lot of people worryingly aroused, including Soulwax, The Beatles, Muse, Bombay Bicycle Club and Darwin Deez
