THE TITLE SEQUENCE have an easy command of melody and deep, quixotic yet willfully complex compositions that relays these quintessentially British pop songs. Songwriter David Bailey and music producer Nick Crofts have been friends since childhood and formed The Title Sequence in 2007. Formerly known as the Sound of Bailey, the band changed their name to allow more room for Crofts production and to also support their changing sound (ie the band name not solely related to Bailey)
The close chemistry between the two friends becomes obvious when they perform together. The band are also joined on stage by a third member in the form of a vintage reel to reel tape machine providing sporadic instrumentation sitting comfortably between the two of them.
Bailey's warm natural charisma endears him to any crowd. The real ace up his sleeve is a seemingly innate ability to marry this wit with fine, wistful sentiment; where unrequited love exists as tangibly as a copy of the TV Times found on the seat of a train, sharing headphones on walkmans and "seeing a girl, and within the space of three minutes inventing an entire imaginary relationship with her, right up to the point of the inevitable break-up”. Their obvious love of electronic music also finds it’s way effortlessly into their well crafted songs and live set, which also includes a cover of an Aphex Twin Track “Ablerto Basalm”. All these influences help The Title Sequence to produce refreshingly original pop music!
Plans to launch the band in early 2009 had to be put on hold due to Crofts having to travel to China to work on an original music score for one of China’s biggest show productions. During four months of working with an array Chinese musicians and performers Crofts also found time to produce a few stunning remixes of the bands songs.
