405 Focus: Binary
Binary are a band who play upon a backdrop of post-punk influences, with definite Echo & the Bunnymen vibes, highly evident in the dusky vocals of frontman David Troster. The band have also worked with producer Sean Bevan, whose work with Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson lead to the boys supporting Mr Manson in Europe.
The 405 got the chance to hang out with the brooding London foursome, allowing them to discuss their musical plans, their ideals and showcase some of their moody musical handiwork.
The session was recorded/edited by George and Louise Nindi.

Either way, we've known each other for a while now, and if I was asked to present you with one word to describe his personality, it would be 'joyous'. [read more]
