Tell us a bit about yourself? We're a 4-piece indie band based in West Yorkshire! Our biggest influences are Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Oasis, The Enemy, The Libertines and Pigeon Detectives amongst others!
There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? We're fast-paced, riff-driven, sing-a-long indie with catchy melodies, massive guitar and bass hooks and relatable lyrics!! Our sound is most comparable to Arctic Monkeys but we definitely offer something new, something you haven't heard before. We love our live performances and so do our fans, they're full of energy and we leave nothing on stage! We recently supported 'Antarctic Monkeys' in front of a full house at 'The Wardrobe' in Leeds.
What’s your back-story? Our songs are about being young, having fun and making mistakes. About all the characters that we all know and love. From songs about the local liar to anthems about pubs and clubs and the inevitable kebab shop fights.
What are you working on at the moment? After forming in April 2017 we released our debut EP 'Brodrick Barricade' in September 2017. We're currently spreading the word with our live shows as well as writing new material for 2018!
