Tell us a bit about yourself? Oasis is quite obviously a big inspiration for me (Luke), before I listened to them I never really cared for music, I wasn't really good at anything, but I listened to Don't Go Away by Oasis on my mates door step and it blew me away, so I wanted to make someone else feel the same way I did, I picked up the guitar and didn't go out till i learnt it.

There are a lot of emerging Artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? I think we have real and honest music, we're not tryna impress anyone with our technique or whatever, we're just shooting from the heart, It's not what you play it's how you play it.

What are the songs on your EP about? Earthshaker is about believing in your self, the only opinion that truly matters is your own, so fuck what the haters say. Headspin is about my partner, She means the world to me, but like all partners they drive you mad. Desperate Eyes is about someone who is desperate for affection but is looking for it in the wrong places. Ya Bet is about someone who always gets away with shit, but you keep saying that one day they'l get there comeuppance.

What are you working on at the moment? We've got an EP out on the 21st October and we're having a EP launch at Duffy's bar in Leicester on the same date.

What's the first song you remember hearing? Don't Go away (Oasis) as I've said really sticks in my mind (Luke)

You're in a Karaoke Bar - What's your go to song? I'll be at the bar man, fuck that.

What was the first gig you went to? Kasabian live at De Monfort Hall leicester, was after there 2nd album, wen't with my Mum, who's is the most Rock N Roll Mum in the world.
