Four Candles is a band comprising of ex Hamsters / Resist bassist Jon Rowlinson , ex Resist Drummer Phil Peak , Middlesbrough s finest export Mark Taylor on guitar and ex Hamsters vocalist Ian ” Moët” Moss. They formed in June 2016 and it was soon evident the creative chemicals were flowing between the four individuals producing vibrant exciting music. Low on funds they scraped together enough cash for sixteen hours studio time in November , in five hours ten tracks were recorded at 6dB in Salford by Simon “Ding” Archer in one or two takes with minimal overdubs , the next eleven hours saw the album mixed.
The album “Killing The Image” released in April 2016.
Mini-album Spiritual Rapture followed in June 2018. The band are currently working on their third album for release in 2019.
