Having played SXSW in March and tipped as one of the hottest bands to check out at the festival, They played 6 shows in two days at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton, VEVO DSCVR stage, DIY showcase and also throwing their own live band Karaoke party on the last night which was completely road blocked, sold out with a huge queue of people trying to get in put them in place as the most exciting and talked about band at the festival. With a string of UK/EU festivals under their belt including Latitude, Truck Festival, Best Kept Secret, Spot festival and more.. The band have set themselves up nicely for an autumn release with plenty of awareness on the ground and in the media.

A great success for the band showing true confidence in their musicianship.
