...The Lost Gecko!

The first Introducing... post of 2011 and it's the turn of The Lost Gecko.  One half of this duo is an Aberdonian living in Ireland.  The other, a Dutchman living in Aberdeen.  Not quite sure how they go about making their music, but one thing is for sure, the end product is at times beautiful.  With a new EP due for release, and recent airplay courtesy of a certain Mr. Gellatly, this could well be a great year for The Lost Gecko.  Here's Malcolm to give us a bit more info on what we can expect...

Kowalskiy:  Who are The Lost Gecko?
Malcolm: The Lost Gecko is myself (Malcolm Sean) and Nils Elders. I'm from Aberdeen and he is Dutch living in Aberdeen. We met around 5 years ago and have been making sounds since.

Kowalskiy:  How would you describe 'your sound'?
Malcolm:  I really don't know, and that's not coz i think we don't sound like anyone. I think a bit of Pearl Jam... someone mentioned Arab Strap similarities and Alice In Chains (Jar Of Flies). My main influence would be the '90s Seattle scene. Nils, he's a big Jason Mraz, Motown fan and more musically minded than myself.  So, with those influences, I hope we create something special.

Kowalskiy:  What can we expect from you in 2011?
Malcolm:  Our new EP is out very shortly called 33 Earthquakes.  We are making a video at the moment and Holly Wade from Art College in Idaho, USA is animating a video for our song Gods Waiting Room which is from our 3rd EP Clocks, Ghosts and Heartbeats. We have just started working with digital marketing agency Limebase.  We will see what 2011 brings. It's gonna be good though!

Kowalskiy:  Here's a wee extra one since it's that time of year... Other than yourselves, what bands would you recommend looking out for in 2011?
Malcolm:  Stanley Odd fae Edinburgh. Cracking hip hop outfit...

...with a free song out no less!   So there you go, that was The Lost Gecko.  Keep your eyes peeled for 33 Earthquakes, and in the meantime, head over to their Soundcloud to hear some tracks from their previous EPs, then if you like what you hear, why not pop over here!
