The band began to form when Will Taylor (vocals, guitar) and Jon Supran (drums, vocals) started playing together age 11 at their local comprehensive school. Later Nick Hill (bass, vocals) joined and finally Sam Berridge (keys, vocals) who they discovered singing down in the London Underground. Will Taylor's parents were both English teachers and unavoidably, many a literary influence can be found in the music with the band taking it's name from Sebastian Flyte of Evelyn Waugh's Brideshead Revisited. After a video of Will and Sam covering Joni Mitchell
's 'River' took in millions of views and following the band's highly successful monthly night at the Moth Club in Hackney, the band signed a deal with Island Records.
In Autumn 2017, the band released their debut album 'The Loved Ones' to widespread acclaim. The Sunday Times calling it 'The Best British debut of the year'. They have been touring the UK and Europe extensively as well as supporting the likes of The Lemon Twigs
and Bombay Bicycle Club
