THE STORY (so far)
Scarlatti Tilt formed in Bristol in 2004, with the current line-up being cemented (after losing 2 members - one to misanthropy and the other to the MI5) in early 2005.
A shared love of all things tinged with melancholy meant that initial pop-ditties were abandoned in favour of something a little darker. Now referencing their own sinister world, the songs evoke tales of debauched joyful nights, followed by sorrowful mornings, against a backdrop of barrooms and bedrooms.
Funded purely by determination and enthusiasm, the band formed their own label, Simmo Publications Ltd and released The One Under EP. A jaunt around the UK, in support of the EP, proved successful, despite double bookings with grindcore-metal bands and having to sleep in drug dens along the way.
With all speeding tickets from the tour now paid, the band re-entered the studio to work on their debut album. Released February 2007 on the band’s own label, the band are following this up with another UK tour in April as well as a trip across the pond to see their American friends, following the support of the LA based Rainy Day Records.
