Life in Film is an indie rock band based in the United Kingdom. Originated in Hackney, East London, Life in Film consists of members Samuel Fry (lead vocals, guitar), Edward Ibbotson (vocals, guitar), Dominic Sennétt (vocals, bass), and Micky Osment (vocals, drums).
The English quartet formed in early 2008 when lead vocalist Samuel Fry returned to London after studying at Bournemouth, reuniting with old school friend, Edward Ibbotson. Soon after, Sennett and Osment, both of whom Fry had met at Bournemouth University, moved to London as well in order to establish a proper beginning for their band.
The band incorporates elements of modern indie and jangle pop. Micky Osment explains in an interview that the band's sound encourages many different layers, focusing on "a guitar hook, a drum rhythm, a bass run, because it’s important for the tune to have depth to it." The band fuses together a mixture of influences from legendary bands such as The Smiths, Joy Division, Interpol, and The Editors. Life in Film, however, is still fairly new to the music world, as they have no albums published thus far. Nonetheless, the indie group continues to make their name more popular, releasing several singles and an EP.
