This four-piece Rock n’ Roll group have been steadily gaining a strong reputation through their exciting live shows and their authentic sound.
Originally starting out as a solo project from Sam Stacpoole, the band evolved into a partnership with Katja Rackin, before turning into a full band with the debut album showcasing a primitive rock ’n’ roll sound that’s been compared to The Modern Lovers and The Velvet Underground alongside current garage rock acts, and praised by the likes of The FADER, Stereogum, BrooklynVegan and KEXP. The band is now a full collaboration between Sam, girlfriend Katja on drums, guitarist Charlie and bassist, Ryan. They all have storied creative histories, but it’s with this band that they’ve struck upon a potent songwriting chemistry.
Their self-titled debut felt like an exercise in total stylistic freedom; the sound of a group following their nose and mining their record collections to produce something genuinely reflective of who they are as musicians. Their second album, West Bay Playroom, which is due to be released with Punk Slime on the 15th February, promises to be even more exhilarating, with a hint of confident nostalgia and stripped back tunes that remind us of old classics that we've been singing along with for years, but which remarkably manage to maintain an individuality that keeps them fresh and exciting
