Biography

Sailplanes comprise Stacey (guitar/vocals), Jola (drums), John (bass) and Tim (guitar/vocals).

We play ambitious art-rock.

Our aim was never to make straightforward music for everyone to like. We try out different structures, time signatures and effects to keep boredom at bay. Music shouldn’t be predictable; we aim to draw people in. Our music is intense, noisy or not noisy, played with conviction and without artifice. We’re doing this because being in a band is part of our lives.
