“Surely one of the most gripping examples of punk triumph over personal trauma” - DIY

Band confirmed for SXSW Festival March 2017, now booking festival appearances for Summer 2017.

New Single 'Not My Fault' Premiered by John Kennedy on Radio X 15/2/17

A three-piece indie band who specialise in drenching the catchiest of hooks in the fizziest of guitar-fuzz, the trio developed as much of a name for themselves as “the ultimate DIY band” (self-producing all of their own music and music videos) as they have for their energetic, guttural, instrument-swapping live dynamics.

Remaining firmly inside their own bubble for the last 18 months, they’ve still somehow managed to impress everyone from BBC6 Music’s Steve Lamacq to Drowned In Sound’s esteemed Editor, Sean Adams, who recently named the band as his favourite discovery of 2016.

Total Guitar, The Guardian, DIY, Clash, Louder Than War and many more have championed the band along the way with tracks from their 2016 Brainless EP picking up spins at Radio X, 6music, BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio to name a few.

2016 saw the band stun Liverpool Sound City, Kendal Calling, Dot to Dot Festival and Off The Record (where they were surprise headliners), as well as rack up killer support slots with Bob Mould (Husker Du), The Garden, Estrons, The Amazons and Pins.

However, late last year the cracks in their insular, DIY bubble were beginning to show. Having planned to return to an actual garage to record their new material, the band instead found themselves in actual recording studios, receiving subsequent invites to record at the historic Low Four Studios in Manchester with Brendan Williams (Mercury nominated for his work with Go Go Penguin), and at Abbey Road Institute in London.
