Tell us a bit about yourself?

We are a fresh four piece funk/ska/rock band from Norwich. Although we have all been friends for a number of years we only formed in September 2015 over a beer at a local festival called Ferryfest. We realised that our musical styles would blend together well to create something upbeat and new. Within a year we released our debut EP 'Wake Up' to critical acclaim and a sell-out crowd.
The band consists of:-
Davey Whales - Lead Vocals and guitar
Ben Parker - Bass and Backing Vocal
Joe Greenacre - Drums
James 'Peach' Maas - Lead guitar
Our main influences are 'Red Hot Chilli Peppers', 'No Doubt', 'Nile Rogers' and 'Sublime'

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest?

Our individual styles blend together and complement each other beautifully to create a unique, crisp and original sound. With funky riffs, driving bass lines, catchy lyrics and rhythms you can’t help dancing to! We are one band you are going to want to see live. We love to perform and our passion and love of music is unparalleled

What’s your back-story?

'Dreaming of the Sea' is about being stuck in a mundane job and wishing you were by the Ocean away from it all.
'Wake Up' is about those Sunday mornings realising you have made a huge mistake the night before
'Fake Tan' is a true story of one night at Norwich's infamous street called Prince of Wales Rd.
'Everyone But Me' is about how people perceive 'reality stars' especially over the internet.

What are you working on at the moment?

We are currently working on our 2nd as yet untitled EP which is a 6 track EP and is due for release in the Spring of 2018
