What do they sound like?
The band perform melodic fuzz pop with dynamics that will transfix and satisfy. Hypnotic, chiming bedroom pop music. For the lovers of Radiohead, The Magic Numbers and Deerhunter.

“I have to honestly state that their live set is captivating and at times hypnotic and currently I prefer them as a live outfit rather than their recorded output. On disc they are pleasant enough and can be compared to the likes of the sadly missed Broadcast. However, when they perform live as a 4-piece outfit, they truly come into their own. There’s more oomph!” – Brighton & Hove News (15.4.18)

What do they sound like?
They inelegantly knot together vicious, furious emotional vocal outpours coupled with beautifully crafted melodic pop songs akin to Girl Ray and is the Patti Smith for the new generation. In fact Emo for Radio 1.
They have become regulars on the UK DIY punk circuit and have been selected by The Guardian as favourites to watch in 2018. Porridge Radio are overwhelmed.

What do they sound like?
Noise-Rock/Post-Punk of the highest quality.
“These lads have suddenly become Brighton’s answer to IDLES”. – Brighton & Hove News (22.10.18)

“A new quintet whose jarring clatter and short sharp tunes make them a welcome addition to the fold. ‘Seeking Arrangement’ – their latest following a recently-released debut EP – is part Girl Band itchy discordance and part noisy grunge thrash. In and out in just over 90-seconds, it’s a big heavy wallop of sound that’ll club you round the ears and leave you wanting more”. – DIY Magazine
