The band have played a range of venues across the north west of England and will be hitting the festival scene this summer with appearances already confirmed at Live at Leeds, Tramlines and Long Division.
With influences ranging from Pixies, Massive Attack and Nirvana to The Beatles, Tricky, UNKLE and King Crimson, their debut EP ‘The Candy and Gravity Motel’ promises to be one of this year’s must hear records. The EP, recorded at Chairworks Studio in Castleford, was produced by Steve Whitfield who has previously worked with The Cure, Bill Bruford (YES/King Crimson) and was mastered by Sufi Dub legend Celt Islam
