London based youthful Cornish rockers have already been compared to The Stones, Jonny Thunders and The Strokes!
The band have been played on 6 Music’s Radcliffe and Maconie, Steve Lamacq & Tom Robinson as well as Radio 1’s Phil Taggert & Huw Stephens & John Kennedy on Radio X. Huw Stephens has them on his Radio 1, Best of BBC Introducing playlist.
In 2018 they have been hotly tipped for success. The band played a sold-out gig at the Monarch in Camden as part of This Feeling’s “Big in 2018” campaign. They toured with Himalayas in February of this year 6 out of the 7 dates sold out. The band support The Bluetones in May with further dates of their own following on.

“we could be witnessing the emergence of another great British band. Jaw droppingly good”. Gigslutz
“bolshy, brash garage punk rabble-rousers somewhere between the attitude of early Cribs or Libertines colliding with the death or glory of the Clash” GodsintheTVZine
“Alright! Band are a bunch of 19 y/o from Cornwall, and they're making an unholy noise and we like a lot of a lot” Phil Taggert Radio 1
“this band keep sending me total bangers” John Kennedy Radio X
