The Self-Collected was born in a post-truth world. Nothing is straight these days, so why should music be? Our goal is to make sense of it all by exploring different rhythmical landscapes and combining elements of psych, soul, grunge, shoe-gaze, funk, and more – the music that has shaped our lives. Our sound is our own, and our message is simple: There are known truths in this universe, there is love to share and harmony is possible.

We tell a story of the modern world, in all of its dystopian, confusing splendour. This is the beginning of a new chapter written against the backdrop of an increasingly-chaotic world where a new perspective, a new direction and a new sound is desperately needed.

Join us on this journey:

The Self-Collected is:
Peter Zábranský (US/CZ) – guitar / vocals
Ben Hope (UK) – drums
Fredrik Janáček (SWE) – bass
Mark Newson (UK) – keys

One guy once said:

“I was recently walking down the hall of the Bandzone practice spaces and from behind the door, I heard fantastic music full of piano, interesting drum grooves and convincing singing with great English. It made me want to get to know the fellas and learn more about their band. The recording that they have on bandzone.cz is just a small sample of the the mosaic that represents their work. Catch them live somewhere, you’ll be glad!”
