"Social Room are a multi-talented band that have worked hard at their craft, they use their musicality to create a perfect platform for the singer Matty Smith to deliver his authoritative vocals with a panache and swagger usually seen on arena size stages by the masters of rock and roll. There are very few new "rock stars" that appear on my Radar but the second I saw Matty Smith perform with the band I knew he was destined to join those noble ranks. Get ready to be a fan not only of Social Room the band and their music but of the raw honesty of the lyrics delivered by this down to earth Northern Lad whose destiny is written all over his face, as William Shakespeare said "It is not in our stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves." This is the bands motto and they are proving it to be true." - Dave Stewart

"The band have refined their sound wonderfully, honing sumptuously catchy vocal melodies and dance inducing beats, while also retaining an authentic rock and roll swagger. Having performed some raucous gigs, supporting both local legends and some of the country’s best up and coming bands (including the infinitely hyped Yak recently), Sunderland six-piece Social Room’s penchant for indie rock with a touch of aggression – in the vein of Britpop heroes Oasis with the synthy sound of The Sunshine Underground – has made them one of the north east’s best under the radar groups." -  Narc Magazine

"Social Room are set for big things in 2018" - Sun FM

"They have melodies that make your heart beat and your feet unable to stop dancing." -  strange-noises.com

"Up-and-coming band Social Room are here to save you from the perils of pop with their guitar-driven, arena-worthy anthems." - The Brighton Magazine

"A genuinely talented local band with strong melody and solid vocals the band add sweeping synths for superb catchy tunes. Social Room evidently already have a good following already judging from the audience response. The Sunderland-inspired song SR7 brought to mind Robbie Williams (in a good way) and The Who, a cracking tune indeed. The band exhibit powerful song writing mirroring that of the superb This Ground Moves from Newcastle. By rights. This band should be all over the charts." - JoWhereToGo Blog

"The precursor to the main event was rounded out by a superb set from Social Room. This six piece hailing from Seaham showed no signs of being daunted by the occasion and exuded confidence and swagger reminiscent of early Kasabian in places, they are one to watch out for indeed." - National Rock Review

"Making waves in the North East with their upbeat indie rock ‘n’ roll music and the band are enjoying their success." - The Chronical

"To coin the line from their latest single, “Take all the time you need now,” couldn’t be any truer as they are taking their time in music’s spotlight and then some." - Peter Mann (The Northern Echo)

"What can only be described as an exhilarating and thunderous set from Wearside’s promising sextet." - The Northern Echo


Social Room have recorded their debut EP in England and it has been produced in LA by Dave Stewart due to be released in 2018.
