Line Up

Jam heavy alternative rock played loud and proud.


We make lots of pop fueled noise. We have loads of fun doing it. We care about equality. No one needs another lad band. We ram out shows and go nuts. We are akin to the band next door, rock stars not welcome 🤘

We’ve spent our first year playing live everywhere, playing reading and Leeds, playing sound city and tramlines, but WE WANT MORE! Debut EP out 7/12 on coloured vinyl.

Clash/the independent/the 405/louder sounds/fresh on the net/bbc introducing, and many more have been lovely to us xxx

Check out our Spotify and soundcloud for our music 😍
