Naming the band was a tricky one. The three of us making music collaboratively had existed for a while before our band officially formed, and we had gone by several temporary names before that point, so when the time came to name ourselves it was difficult to decide our favourite or pick a new name. We all gave ideas until eventually, the name Point Taken came up. We all really liked it, it was short, punchy and several meanings could be taken from that one phrase. We all agreed on Point Taken! very quickly from that point onwards.
I’d like to think we all take our influences from different places. Between all of us I’d say we listen to almost every genre of music collectively. More recently, I feel as if we’ve all been taking heavy influences from the progressive metal/math rock scene. Bands like Dance Gavin Dance, Covet, Snarky Puppy, Animals as Leaders and Chon have all featured heavily on our playlist rotations recently and has definitely started to come across in our music.
