My Own Agenda – Birmingham O2

My Own AgendaBirmingham based band My Own Agenda absolutely owned the stage at their recent O2 Academy gig in Birmingham supporting punk rock trio Templeton Pek.

Having been around for a while in one form or another MOA now seem to have found there perfect line up, and their own unique sound…a sound which is starting to turn heads.

The all-male 4 piece lean towards rock with a digital fusion and they love a killer keyboard riff or two, like the infectiously catchy ‘Diane’ their new single.

The boys know their craft and really whipped up the Birmingham audience, not with bravado or over zealous showmanship but with musicianship and the catchy melodies they are so prolific in creating.

We Are Scientists are the only rock band I can think of who have managed to completely change a song for a cover but still keep the essence, well now My Own Agenda have done the same.

Their version of Blackstreet’s ‘No Diggity’ filled the room and singer Matt’s vocals made the transition from hip hop to rock seamlessly. For those unfamiliar with the song, it would have sounded like an original composition. It just worked, when really it shouldn’t have.

The boys take influence from all walks of music, going from their rocky roots to the funk and swagger of R’n’B with elements of indie and even a splash of punk for good measure.

All combined make My Own Agenda a real exciting prospect for the future.
