It took less than three years for James And The Cold Gun to go from a garage in Cardiff, Wales — where the band’s co-founders, James Joseph and James Biss, recorded their debut album — to Hyde Park supporting Pearl Jam.

That sort of explosive growth is mirrored in the band’s music: a loose, loud sound that evokes the glory days of 1990s alt-rock, back when electric guitars ruled the airwaves. James And The Cold Gun’s self-titled debut album nods to that era, but it’s a defiantly modern record, too, reclaiming the sounds of the past for a world in desperate need of a little amplification.

“We’re massive rock fans,” says frontman James Joseph. “If you look at 90% of the bands on rock playlists right now, though, they don’t always sound like rock. You can barely hear a guitar, and everything is super polished. We found ourselves wanting to hear new music that had the guts to keep things messy and as real as possible, so we made it ourselves.”
