An Introduction to The Notion

Upcoming Shows

The Notion will be supporting 'Dirty Laces' at The Loose Cannon in Failsworth on Friday 31st May which has already sold out! Their next headline gig is in Manchester at Night People on Saturday 6th July.

Who are The Notion and what can we expect?

The Notion are fresh from their sold-out headline gig in their hometown of Manchester at AATMA. The indie rock band released their debut single 'Wasting Time' earlier this year and have already got further gigs lined up. They will be supporting Dirty Laces at The Loose Cannon in Failsworth on Friday 31st May, which is already sold out. They also have another headline gig in Manchester lined up for Saturday 6th July.

The Manchester 4-piece are made up of brothers Kyle (Lead Vocals & Guitar) and Dylan McCombe (Lead Guitar), also in the band is Ethan Goddard (Bass) and Sam Short (Drums).

We got in touch with Kyle following their headline gig at AATMA to ask him a few questions on what was in the pipeline for 'The Notion' and who their aspirations are.

Kyle, I really enjoyed hearing your debut single and looking forward to seeing what is next for you guys. Are you working on an album or solely singles for now?

Kyle: "At the minute we’re looking at just bringing out a few singles for the time being and hopefully building up a fan base before bringing out an album. We’re in the studio currently and we are hoping to get our next single out in a couple of months."

Influences are very important for new bands, what bands are you guys into at the moment?

Kyle: "We listen to a lot of different bands, at the minute we’re into bands like The Courteeners, DMAS, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Gerry Cinnamon, The Enemy and Kasabian. We’re also into the obvious Manchester bands like Oasis, Roses, James and The Verve, these bands are just essential for any band up and coming in the Manchester music scene. We have also been listening to a lot of up and coming bands, like ourselves, The Snuts, Dirty Laces and The K’s, are our favourites at the moment."

Your support at AATMA was Scott Jeffreys of From Carbon, who have recently just launched their 2nd album at The Breadshed, did he have any words of wisdom?

Kyle: "I’ve known Scott for a couple of years so was great to have him down to do an acoustic set to start the night off. I’ve seen From Carbon a couple of times and they have a great sound, he has also given me a copy of the new album which has some great tracks on it. He’s given us some tips for the future so we’re going in the right direction."

We are very excited to hear the next single and will most definitely be joining Kyle and the boys at their headline gig in July! Good luck in the studio. You can follow their journey on Facebook by clicking here.
