Plymouth's Rock Scene Part 4 (Say It Like It Is, Embers of Eden, Still Filthy)

Our celebration of rock music in Plymouth and the South West continues with three bands for your consideration.

Say It Like It Is


Say It Like It Is are a 4 piece all female rock band from Plymouth who formed in 2010. The band consists of Wallis (Vocals), Lauren(Guitar),  Liv ( Bass) and  Jeck (drums).

The band have toured relentlessly around Plymouth playing Level 2, Oxjam and The Brass Monkey. They had their first gig outside Plymouth at The Finneygook Inn, Cornwall. in December 2013. The band have just recorded their first EP which is titled “Making Up For Lost Time” and are looking to play more venues supporting the release.
What Do They Sound Like

The band play a mixture of covers of indie /rock songs delivered with their own unique style and original songs. Their original material has a bluesy feel to it with sultry vocals and growling riffs. This is a band looking to build on their growing following and now have the songs to do so.
