Give us a little bio about you?
We’re a 5-piece band from in and around London, but not only are we a band, we’re just 5 mates that love creating music together
What made you go into music and who influenced you?
Arctic monkeys were the first band that I really fell in love with, and they still hold the title for my favourite band to this day, but it was bands like viola beach (rip), blossoms, and more recently sports team, that made the idea of being in a band more attainable, also musical legends such as, David bowie and bill withers influenced me greatly
