Family Selection Box are a three piece art-pop outfit from Lancaster.
Formed in 2016, Tom Diffenthal asked illustrators Lauren Dowling and Alanna Rusch to form a band to make a new recording project a reality.
Both learned their instruments (bass and drums respectively) from scratch, and played their first gig (in Lauren’s mum’s front room) just weeks after forming.
The project soon turned to collaboration as the rhythm section contributed creatively.
Tom’s kitchen sink lyrics combine with Lauren’s melodic sensibility and Alanna’s rhythmic intuition to create an instantly recognisable soundtrack to their refusal to take themselves too seriously, and their gloriously DIY approach to everything they do.
Family Selection Box released ‘Confetti’ on Bingo Records.
