How would you describe yourselves?
A combination of individual influences each adding their own unique spin on rock resulting in a punchy sound with melodic undertones and raw vocals. A sound you need to hear!
Who are your main influences musically?
We each have quite different influences really so I think you'll be able to detect influences from a few areas but in particular, Foo Fighters and Alter Bridge
What do you hope to achieve in music?
To be given the chance for everyone around the World to hear our sound and the music we love to write and play.
What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
So far, I'd say it's headlining The Duchess in York and having our two tracks played on BBC Introducing. But hopefully there's bigger and better to come!
And what’s the moment you want to forget?
I don't think there's been one yet! You take the good with the bad (strings snapping and guitar leads pulling out of amps... in the same show) but it's all part of the experience of being in a band playing live
If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Rise Again - The song is made up of distinctive different sections which all fit together so well keeping a strong rock vibe but without falling into the verse chorus verse chorus trap.
