Tell us a bit about yourself? 4-Piece Indie-Pop-Rock band based in Hull. Influenced by The Wombats, Two Door Cinema Club, The 1975.

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? Made up of students for Hull Uni all studying a Masters Music and Live music Production.

What’s your back-story? Most of the first EP was based around longing for things, it was written in a time when a lot of things were changing in my life.
