Pacific play a style that can be likened to the band Keane but with an edgier sound.

It is piano-led and it is a form of Alternative Indie Rock.  The group‘s members include two brothers, Anthony and Daniel Orzel.  The former is lead vocalist and plays the aforementioned piano while the latter plays bass and provides backing vocals.

The two remaining members are Dave Bithell, who plays lead guitars and sings backing vocals and drummer and percussionist Drew Burns.

The band reached the semi-final of “Live and Unsigned”, the biggest original music competition for bands around the UK in 2011.  They have released a handful of singles and have had rave reviews from the likes of New Musical Express and BBC 6’s Mark Radcliffe.  They also played the Golden Square at the Warrington Music Festival.

To hear the sound of Pacific look out for “Dream Of Mine” and the latest single “Time To Forget” on YouTube and the official website.
