The Brighton four piece, comprising of Josh, Ed, Dudley & Lawrie, formed back in 2010, drawing influence from the sounds of Manchester Orchestra, Death Cab For Cutie and Diamond Youth. Over the years, the band crafted an impressive string of hits, produced by the likes of Matt O’Grady (You Me At Six, Deaf Havana, Don Broco, Your Demise), Gez Walton (The King Blues, Skindred), John Davis (Lana Del Rey, U2, Plan B) Harry Hess (Chicago, Billy Talent, Ramones).

The track featured slick production, concise arrangements and anthemic vocal hooks. Their obvious and deep passion resulted in an increasing amount of media attention and expanding their online presence worldwide.
