Give us a little bio about you
We are a new, ambitious alt-rock band from Leeds.
We’re a three piece band who make a big sound! We mix male and female vocals, pounding drums, driving bass and lush guitars to make catchy songs with a strong message.
You released your debut single ‘The Dreamer’, tell us more about the single.
The Dreamer was one of the first songs we wrote together as a band. Lyrically it’s about teenage summers and looking back on them with rose tinted glasses. We tried to capture that feeling with the music too. It’s probably one of the calmest songs in our set – even with the big ending – so we usually open with it live.
Who did you work with on the single?
Our drummer Anna is a really talented music producer and runs Ride or D.I recordings, so she manages all of our music production. We recorded at Old Chapel Studios in Leeds over a couple of very fun days and got some great advice from Young Thugs studios in York too.
Will we see a music video for ‘The Dreamer’, what can we expect from the creative process?
Yes! We’re working on a music video that will be out very soon. We wanted to keep the dreamy vibe and double exposure effect of the artwork, so we’re carrying that through to the visuals too.
Will we see an EP or album and if so, can you give us a teaser of what to expect?
Hopefully so! Our next release will be a single, but after that we’ll start thinking about what we want to do next. We’re building up a good catalogue of songs so we’re looking forward to getting them recorded and doing them justice!
What else can we expect in 2022?
Right now we’re getting ready to release the video for The Dreamer, lining up live shows and working on plans for our second single. After that, who knows!
