Manchester’s Splint release their second single 145.Manchester’s Splint have released 145 as their second single on Nice Swan Records with a video by Mackenzie Thomson. 

It’s a swift follow up to their debut, Military Procedures, and this new one is a moody two-hander between vocalists Giulia Bonometti and Jake Bogacki, who cite Television as a key influence on their sound.

Bogacki on vocals/guitar is part of the ever expanding West Yorkshire scene in Calderdale including the Orielles and The Lounge Society. Moving to South Manchester he joined forces with Bassist Bonometti, Guitarist George Davies, Finn Cohen-Ennis on guitar and drummer Ellie Rose-Elliot.

 “It’s about the human condition that unites every person but also divides us, “ says Giulia Bonometti.  “Going through life without paying attention to what is actually happening to the people around us and settle for the “I’m fine” in reply to the “how are you’s?” Pretending to be strong when everything is falling apart and never allow yourself to be vulnerable.”

The band have been out on the road supporting English Teacher and The Lounge Society and playing at festivals, including Manchester Psych Fest. They have dates coming on Sat 29 Oct 2022 at Manchester YES, and Fri 4 Nov 2022 at London, Jaguar Shoes
