Genre: Rock, RockN'Roll
For the past six years, high-energy Israeli rock band Trademark has been making its mark - not only on home territory, but also in the UK.
The band - Dan Naveh (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Roy Halevy (backing vocals, lead guitar), Yali Koren (backing vocals, bass) and Noam Greidy (drums) – has built an impressive and loyal following since their first show at Tel Aviv’s famous Pathiphone Club (‘record player’ in Hebrew), which became the band’s home club until it's closing in 2007.
In 2010 the band coordinated their leave to fund a trip to the UK – and a week to record their first album, ‘Future Analogue’ with Nick Brine (Oasis, Arctic Monkeys, Stereophonics, The Darkness, Steve Harley) at Leeders Farm recording studios in Norfolk (UK).
While working at Leeders, Nick’s business partner, former Darkness guitarist Dan Hawkins, arrived unexpectedly, loved what he heard and in the week that followed, while Nick and his team got busy on the mixes at the legendary Rockfield Studios, again arrived unexpectedly, this time to see the band live.
Over the years, the band had played all over Israel, packing their own shows and supporting bands like Useless ID and Man Alive, as well as international acts including MXPX. Heavily influenced by Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Beck to name a few, the band’s debut album has been described as ‘an instant hard rock classic’ with ‘swagger and finesse’ (David Brinn, The Jerusalem Post).
