About Sonic Undermind

Sonic Undermind are what one promoter described as a "high-octane new millennium rock band". The press have called them "truly unique" and "brimming with intense nervous energy". They have been gigging together for a year but are already steadily making their way to the top of the bill in London venues like The King's Head, The Archway and The Catapult Club. The band have a loyal fan base in Berkshire and play to packed houses in their home town of Reading.

The Sonic Undermind sound is unique but some have tried to describe it as a cross between The Darkness and The Streets whereas others have described it as a cross between Joy Division and Nirvana. Their songs are based on the tight funky groove of the rhythm section set against their blistering heavy guitars. On top of that is the enigmatic (and sometimes downright odd) Pete Hefferan on vocals.
