Produced by Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur, Kaiser Chiefs), ‘Get Closer’ is an upbeat indie-pop song that fuses a blues sentiment with introspective lyrics, catchy hooks and propulsive rhythms.

The track was written over the course of a few hours in their flat in the summer and it evolved from a loose melody guitarist Edward Ibbotson was tinkering with. The band have already released two EPs, supported The Rolling Stones, played global gigs with Burberry after Christopher Bailey hand-picked them (frontman Samuel Fry also modelled for Burberry) and have had radio plays from BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens and BBC 6Music’s Lauren Laverne under their belt.

They play a string of UK dates including London’s Scala before heading to Germany and will announce their first North American shows shortly.
