New mode are an Indie rock/rock & roll band born from the depths of Elgin in Moray. Frontman Ross Campbell and lead guitarist Aaron Christie started playing small acoustic sets together in August 2016, taking inspiration from bands such as ; The rolling stones, Oasis, The who, Kasabian, The Beatles, The Faces etc. However, their desire for a bigger, thicker sound drove them to seek out more members for the group and now have Mathew Gault on drums and Fraser Wilkinson on bass. The boys look set to bring their passion and energy to every gig they play, and continue for what has been an amazing year and a half for the four piece.
