GIVE US THREE REASONS WHY WE SHOULD TRACK DOWN, LISTEN AND DISCOVER YOUR MUSIC?
If you want to rock out we’ve got belting melodies and edgy riffs, if you’re chilled out listen for the slow ambience and smooth synths. Our style is the culmination of many influences, resulting in something that we believe is exciting and original. We’re releasing our debut EP ‘Here We Stand’ soon, so check it out!
WHERE DO YOU SOUND BEST – FESTIVAL, CLUB, BEDROOM – OR SOMEWHERE ELSE?
B: Live on stage, after a few pints.
T: We love playing live and loud (very loud) but tend to hear ourselves in a badly equipped practise room, so we’re used to that!
J: Glastonbury. Or we could be the first band to play on Mars, that would be cool.
