Tell us a bit about yourself? Indie rock band based in Cambridge, UK, with an emphasis on the rock side of things. Tunes are built on raw live energy, guitar interplay and catchy rhythms. Bringing a fresh twist on indie rock (Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes) , using no frills production, taking influence from 60s garage rock (The Kinks, The Sonics) and 70s post punk (Television, The Clash), while also using an eclectic range of funk and jazz influences on bass.

Fully formed in December 2017.

Members:
Jack Ogden (guitar/vocals), 17
Simon Haynes (guitar/vocals),17
Matt Turner (drums), 17
Jamie Went (bass guitar), 17

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? We combine energy and no frills production with crafted musicianship. All the guitars play off each other nicely rhythmically and harmonically, while the drums sit in the pocket and provide a bouncy, groovy feel.

What’s your back-story? None really, we're fucking dullards

What are you working on at the moment? New music with a heavier tone, and recording more finished tracks. Emphasising the 'rock' over the 'indie'. Recently been listening to more hip hop/funk as well as heavier desert/stoner rock which may well factor in.

What's the first song you remember hearing? 5 Colours in Her Hair - McFly

You're in a Karaoke Bar - What's your go to song? Hound Dog - Elvis Presley

What was the first gig you went to? The Fratellis @ The Cambridge Junction

Which song do you wish you'd written? Feeling Good. Chord progressions don't get better.

Which song changed your life? Marquee Moon - Television. Though seeing Green Day's Bullet In A Bible DVD age 4 was a huge influence as well.

Which song would you like played at your funeral? Scatman - Scatman John. Mandatory scatting from everyone in the crowd.

What song is stuck in your head right now? Off The Ground - Anderson .Paak

What was the first Album you bought? Dookie - Green Day was the first with my own money.

Which song made you want to play music? American Idiot - Green Day
