And what they’re capable of is really quite thrilling pop/rock that doesn’t sacrifice those all-important catchy hooks for monster riffs (ie they know how to write the kind of songs that your postman or postwoman could whistle – providing they had enough puff, that is). They only got together last year but they managed to draw a crowd of 250 excited punters to their first gig, which was at a sweaty Riverside. Frontman David Stoker, warbled: “We’ve spent the first few months finding our sound, jamming new song ideas, writing. Getting in the studio has been awesome as we always bring out each other creativity. We try to experiment in the studio as much as possible and hopefully that comes across in our records.” It does, it really does. Their first clutch of singles have been real eye-openers, pitched somewhere between the urgent clatter of Bloc Party with the force of Biffy Clyro. Most importantly, they know how to pen big melodies that wire themselves directly into your central nervous system. The band’s audience continues to grow, as evinced by their recent gig at the O2 Academy, and this year they’re planning a mini-tour and festival dates.
