Art rock embellished with strings - cinematic compositions full of sweeping elegant darkness and hypnotic delicate intensity.
Stems were formed in the UK in 2011 by founder member and composer John Dorr, with the idea of mixing classical composition and instruments with rock. The music is often described as 'Cinematic' and sometimes labelled Post- Rock or Neo- Classical. In 2018 the band relocated to Nuremberg.
Since 2013 they have toured Europe several times and developed a following based on their reputation for intense and beautiful concerts, often performing with local string players to expand the sound. Performing shows with Russian Circles, Tides from Nebula, Pelican, My Baby, Lovely Eggs.
The band has received commissions from British Film Institute to create new live soundtracks for the silent films of Georges Méliés. Which has been performed in many Cinema's and events such as a short tour with British based DJ Yoda, including a performance to an audience of 8000 in their home town, November 2014. They have also released music with Fluttery Records (Istanbul) and Come Play With Me records (Leeds, UK)
