Pendulum

Pendulum

The most recent are a drum’n’bass-influenced electronic rock group from Perth, Australia, who relocated to the UK in 2003. The group (2002) comprises Rob Swire (vocals/synth/producer), Gareth McGrillen (bass guitar/producer/DJ), Perry ap Gwynedd (guitar), Paul ‘El Hornet’ Harding (DJ), KJ Sawka (drums) and Ben ‘The Verse’ Mount (MC).

In 2005 they released their debut album, Hold Your Colour. Critically, the album was well-received in both the United Kingdom and Australia. In addition, it was one of the biggest selling Drum and Bass releases of all time. Pendulum have also collaborated with Freestylers, releasing the single “Fasten Your Seatbelt”. MC $pyda and DJ Tenor Fly also feature as vocalists on “Tarantula”.

Pendulum’s sound is typically heavy beats accompanied by low, buzzing bass lines, overlaid with synthesized leads. As of their second album, In Silico, further experiments with sound are evident with many more elements from rock and typical electronic music being incorporated into their music. “In Silico” is Pendulum’s first album for Warner Bros. Records via the bands Ear Storm imprint.

Their track “Vault” was played by almost every DJ and was declared by annual Knowledge Drum’n’bass Awards as The Best Track of the Year. They’ve made a bunch of remixes, including a remix of Voodoo People by The Prodigy.

The band’s third album “Immersion” was released on 24th May 2010, entering the UK album charts at #1 at the end of that week.
