Stay+ was an ‘anonymous’ band, actually made up of me and Matt Farthing. We were originally called Christian AIDS until we got handed a cease and desist from the charity.
We created all of our own promos, visuals and photography in addition to mixes and remix. From 2010–2012 we played over 50 shows all over Europe and released two EPs. We sent a balloon artist to Radio 1 in lieu of an interview, we told NME that we were hacking people’s phones at our gigs, we only played in pitch black darkness and our music was the soundtrack to a Givenchy fashion show.
‘Arem’, our last EP, was released as a 50 inch QR code housed in an acrylic record sleeve. The EP came bundled with a 20 minute film and more.
