Do I really need a bass player to form a band? Two piece bands seems to be happening more and more lately…

I noticed a new trend going on in the music industry lately. First we get the White Stripes, the Black Keys, then we have Royal Blood and now we have another two piece band called, Black Pistol Fire who seems to be getting a lot of popularity. I just discovered Black Pistol Fire by a recommendation of someone so I decided to check them out in youtube and really liking them!

Two piece bands have been happening more and more lately in music. I wonder why?

Maybe it’s because musicians are finding bands that have more than two members are pretty boring? Maybe they’re finding that having more than two members is pretty pointless? Maybe they want to sound different? I don’t know but you don’t really need a lot of members to form a band. You can play a lot tighter and have more energy as a two-piece. More concentration. Plus it sounds better without a bass player. You don’t really need a bass player. Two piece acts play better live shows anyways.

This is inspiring me to do the same. Just find a drummer to jam with. Start my own two piece project. Sounds like a lot of fun!
