Growing from the solo project of front-woman Megan O'Neill, who creates an infectious onstage energy with harmonising co-writers Dan Clark and Tom Smith (electric & acoustic guitars), their catchy but insightful songwriting underpins danceable grooves from Kesh Kanabar (bass) and Sian Monaghan (drums), with Mairéad Furlong's Irish fiddle flourishes at the heart of their distinctive Celt-icana sound.

A steely determination lies below Megan's trademark headscarf and sunny disposition. Gently setting aside the polished pop sheen of her solo recordings in favour of a more organic Americana sound, Megan has made some recent changes to her music team and the diminutive figure at the band's centre stands quietly in control of her musical direction.
