Coming together 18 months ago and aged in their mid-teens, Macroscope are an alternative six piece from Pontefract who by their own admission are looking to do something…well, alternative.

Harnessing the standard guitar, drums and bass was never going to be enough for these lads and so piano, keys and a sax add a real breadth to their sound. With influences ranging from indie and punk through to acid jazz, their songs push the boundaries for a band at such an early stage in their development and it’s perhaps that aspect that seen them already perform at key venues in West Yorkshire ahead of a debut at Long Division.
