The band, who consist of Joe Williams (lead vocals/guitars), Mike Griffiths (guitars/vocals) and Louis Heaps (bass) met at school and bonded over their love of bands like The Strokes, Queens Of The Stone Age, Muse, Royal Blood and Manic Street Preachers. Drummer James Goldbourn moved to Cardiff from Dubai and found like-minded souls in the trio to complete the line up.
Releasing their first tracks in 2017, they were quickly picked up by the likes of Huw Stephens, Greg James and Clara Amfo at Radio 1 alongside Gordon Smart (Radio X), Edith Bowman (Virgin Radio) and over in the states on Jason Kramer (KCRW). Tracks including the single, ‘Thank God I’m Not You’ have amassed an incredible number of streams on Spotify, tipping 21 million and counting. Featuring on key playlists including the influential Walk Like A Badass.
On the live front, in the last year they have performed on the Festival Republic stage at the Reading & Leeds Festival, SXSW and The Great Escape, as well as an array of headline shows.
