Defences formed in early 2014 and have since been travelling up and down the UK performing their varied and experimental take on modern alternative music to a rapidly growing fanbase. It should be noted however, that while the style of instrumentation and genre may change from song to song, the lyrical themes of overcoming adversity, self-realisation and the recognition of beauty remain a driving rhetoric that permeates all of the music released by the band.
With the singles off 2017's debut album "With Might and Main", receiving a wide range of mainstream press support such as BBC Radio 1, Alt Press, Rock Sound and Kerrang! Radio as well as becoming widely used music source for internet content creators has created a a feedback loop that results in enviable levels of support. Their Spotify account continues to grow at an exponential rate and with such a dedicated fanbase already baying for favourites such as "Gravity" and "Grow", Defences are a band that looks to have a very bright future indeed.
