Room 1985


Room 1985 is a Manchester-based duo (Chris Crysand and John Hulse) that deliver a driving mix of post-rock electronica with an incredible psychedelic atmosphere.

Both experienced musicians with a long and varied history in the rock, progressive metal and electronic music genres; Chris has toured all over Europe with his previous project Crysand and the band boasts collaborations with prestigious artists ranging from Van der Graaf Generator, Brandi Winny of Ozric Tentacles and Rofoldo Maltese through to DJ Antoine Becks, Lel Brothas and Nero.

Since Room 1985’s formation in early 2016, the band have undertaken a UK tour and played many live shows – always receiving a great reception.

With their debut album due for release in summer 2017 and many more live appearances planned, Room 1985 are ready to reach out to your mind, heart and soul. Join them on their journey.
