The music of ‘No Side Effects’ is a mix of electronic, synth pop, funk and a sprinkling of jazz using vocals, found sounds, samples, electronic keyboards, guitars and drums.
The themes sprinkled through the music, writing, art and podcasts (so far) delve lightly into religion, life and death, media, global warming, perceptions of reality, depression, understanding, reasoning and the end of everything.
The debut album called ‘Reinventing Failure’ is due out on 2nd August 2018 following the release of 4 singles and 2 music videos from the album, all of which can be downloaded through Bandcamp.
‘No Side Effects’ is a collaboration between two artists, Thomas Haynes of ‘Grasslands’ and Adrian Wallington of ‘Two Short Planks’. Tom and Ade met through their work in the environmental sector in Newbury in 2009 and in 2013, finally met to at least chat about creating music at a Newbury pub in September 2013. Tom currently resides in Swindon and Ade lives in Newbury.
