    With an honest love for melodic pop-rock, Celadore’s approach to their debut EP Distance Is A Gun was all about the songs.

    “Our songs are drawn from personal experience. ‘Distance Is A Gun’ is the title track and strangely enough was the last song that we worked on prior to recording. We had already started pre-production when Coops brought in a rough demo. With its catchy pulse and crashing chorus, it was the way the relatively bleak and defeated lyrics sat with the upbeat energy of the melody that stood out.” - Celadore

    Playing together since their early teens, guitarist/vocalist Michael Cooper and bassist Tom Ahmed would steal away from class to jam in their high school rehearsal room, but the three piece wasn’t complete until they welcomed drummer David Noordhoff in 2009. With the full line up realised, they set off to record their debut in the secluded sanctuary of a coastal beach shack in East Victoria.

    Taking inspiration from their idols Crowded House, Motor Ace, Elliott Smith, Big Heavy Stuff and The Beatles, Celadore’s sound swings between brooding rock, subdued balladry and uplifting pop. It was this care for delicate melodies and driving hooks that grabbed the attention of UK producer Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters - Colour And The Shape, Kisschasy - Hymns For The Non-Believer, Gyroscope - Cohesion). Responding to a couple of rough mixes sent over to his East London studios, Chris was quick to take up the job of mixing ‘Distance Is A Gun.’
