NME Interview:

Tell us a bit about yourself?
We're four geezas from East London that love guitars, beer and fried chicken. We spend most of our time locked away in a tiny rehearsal room trying our hardest to deafen each other.

There are a lot of emerging Artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest?
We're honest. So many people write songs to be cool or because they think it's what people want to hear. We couldn't give a fuck about selling a million records, we just want to get drunk, have fun and write music from the heart (but also sell a million records and spend the money on wings).

What’s your back-story?
We've all known each other for years. Sheer boredom lead us to starting a band - not a bad shout in hindsight. When we write new music it's very important that every song is a story. Mostly we right about loves lost and found (cliche af), but the songs become so extremely personal to us that it means we give 1000% when we play them live.

What are you working on at the moment?
We've just finished the next two singles with our boy Oz Craggs (Feed The Rhino, Mallory Knox, Neck Deep)! So stoked to get these out. Honestly the best fucking tracks we've written yet. 2018 TOUR SOON COME!
