The Theodolites - Code Purple Review Feature




The Theodolites are a pretty unique concept band who formed in Derbyshire, UK in February 2016. The band consists of multi-instrumentalist Nicky, lyricist Bereek Tha Capricorn, singer/songwriter Marie Red and vocalist Shine. They are a virtual band, who are free of musical constraints and are able to provide a platform for music, graphics and artists for a broad range of genres and audiences. The three songs they have released, demonstrate this perfectly, with each song having the video and visuals matching the tone and feel of the music 

in a wonderful and powerful way. 



Artwork for single, Code Purple


Their latest and hardest hitting single is, Code Purple which acts as a tribute to hard rock heroes, AC/DC, influenced by their classic hit, Thunderstruck. The video depicts various cityscapes, which is beautifully constructed; the imagery that unfolds in the lively cities flows in harmony with melodic bouncy licks and riffs, which have an obvious AC/DC sound, which is of course a compliment. The Theodolites have hit the nail on the head and should be proud of their musical appreciation to what is one of the most highly regarded and well known rock acts.

As they create music to fit the feel of a video, they have an enormous amount of freedom that other musicians simply can't apply. This is a brilliant musical notion which will be fascinating to watch and listen too as they continue to expand musically and creatively through future virtual releases, making them a band to certainly keep an eye on!
