The Lightness of Being aren’t your average rock band – guitarist Sam has played in a salsa group, while drummer Sergio is also a minimal DJ. It’s not only their musical backgrounds that are diverse; singer Gabriel is originally from Singapore, Sam has lived in Japan and the US and Sergio is from Poland.
The band came together after Gabriel and Sergio struck up a chance conversation – and despite coming from all walks of life they soon began rehearsing and playing shows in London.
If you’re a fan of Queens of the Stone Age or Sonic Youth, you will want to give The Lightness of Being a listen.
