The Ringards are an avant-garde, post-punk outfit based in East London. Devilish in delivery and drenched in sardonic lyricism, the four-piece exude raw punk energy reminiscent of the late 70’s but land leftfield on the wider experimental pitch. Formed in East London in 2018 and hailing from just about every corner of the globe, The Ringards is the city dwelling collaboration of Enzo Salinie (lead vocals), Henry Brewer (lead guitar), Jake Barnett (rhythm guitar), Gary Cartmill (bass) and Joe Hornby Patterson (drums). Leaving their separate worlds behind, the band up sticks to a shared flat in Hackney and have been creating art-punk singles loaded with grit ever since. An extension of Salinie’s mordacious lyrics, the alternative musicians collectively express their experiences in the ever-changing world that we live in – breathing new life into the genre whilst they’re at it.
To date, The Ringards have been championed by the likes of BBC Introducing, Fred Perry Subculture, Boogaloo Radio, Hoxton Radio and have been featured on the cover of Lost and Found Magazine. Thriving in their high-octane live sets, the band have played to packed out crowds at venues such as The Shacklewell Arms, The Waiting Room, 229 Venue and Notting Hill Arts Club. On an upward trajectory, the London locals have spent 2021 knee-deep in the studio working on compelling future releases.
