The Difference Engine are the finest indie/trumpet pop band in the country. Our songs deal with topics such as Ernest Shakelton (and Antarctic Exploration in general), Toast and Unfinished Geometrical Shapes. The songs are quirky and clever whilst possessing the best brass section in the city and a live show that has elements of uncontrolled pleasure, perverse behaviour and high drama

Lyrically our aim is to make the ordinary seem magical. Musically we simply write great melodies. The songs are a handbook on how not to get laid and how not to be popular. We have been compared to the Smiths, Blur, Whipping Boy, Randy Newman, Coldplay and Mark Ronson

The songs have received a large amount of radio airplay. We had single of the week on the Rick O’Shea Show on Radio2 for “Carol Vorderman – Counting Me Down” which has received nearly 190,000 hits on YOUTUBE. Ray D'Acrcy believed our songs to be "a work of genius" when we performed on his show whilst Beat FM and Live 95 listed us as one of ther favourite acts in their end of year review.
