Sometimes you need to look back to look ahead, and that’s exactly what this Yorkshire quartet does, and they do it quite well. Taking hints of ’80s C-86 mixtapers, twee pop, and ’60s R&B, as well as the band’s wry literature reference, and you have a concoction that’s both catchy and memorable.

They made quite a mark during a run of appearances at SXSW last month.  After one performance, the band made their way into the crowd, shaking hands and giving up an excellent CD filled with demos.

Second single “Bloodshot Days” is out now on Heist or Hit, and it’s accompanied by a video directed by Stella McDonald.
