Tell us a bit about yourself?
We are a three piece indie rock band, who all met at uni in Guildford. We draw our influences from bands such as Cage the Elephant, Kings of Leon and Catfish and the Bottlemen. These kind of bands shaped our songs into the familiar indie sound we would want to listen to ourselves.

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest?
We are completely grounded in indie rock, therefor creating a very familiar yet new sound for fans of the genre. We spent the last year just developing our tracks to a standard that we were happy with and now we feel our current single 'Enough' is the most accurate representation of the sound we have been working towards.
What are your songs inspired by?
Lyrically, most of our tracks centre around the stresses of adolescence, with relationships and anxiety about the future. We try and create music which is reflective of this.

What are you working on at the moment?
Well we have a few gigs lined up for the coming months, along with some new material coming out in March. In the mean time we have a music video for our latest single coming out later this month which we're really excited to show everyone.

What's the first song you remember hearing?
Dancing in the Moonlight by Toploader, I listened to that on repeat for years..

You're in a Karaoke Bar - What's your go to song?
If Karaoke broke out I would probably run away.

What was the first gig you went to?
I saw Kasabian in Birmingham on their Velociraptor tour. I got hit in the head with a beer bottle, it was great.

Which song do you wish you'd written? Sound and Colour by the Alabama Shakes just because of how simple but powerful it is, the entire album is great.

Which song would you like played at your funeral? Weight of Love by The Black Keys, it's got the right balance of depressing lyrics and guitars so it would be appropriate i think.
