They released their debut EP "Thorns" on 10/08/18 after a storming launch gig at PJ Molloys, Dunfermline.
They have now been added to the bill as part of Live Music Fridays at Kitty's in Kircaldy alongside Supa & Da Kryptonites, Cherry Diesel and The Decrees.
They are very much a band with much more to come if their live show and EP are anything to go by, they ould be around for a long time
The debut EP is 5 original tracks kicking off with the hypnotic guitar hooks of "Outside" which blends with the acoustic guitar and understated vocals.
"Bad Reputation" follows with it's guitar and beats intro taking us on a rollercoaster of melody and guitar breaks before coming to a very effective screaming halt.
"Counting The Changes" has all the hallmarks of an alt-indie classic. Swirling guitar intro, softly sung verses carrying you to arm swaying chorus destined to get live audience dancing and singing
"Amends" is a fast paced delivery of beats, more killer guitar hooks and even some fuzzy bass
"Let Me Know" is the chilled acoustic closer where we hear the softer side of the band in words and sounds.
Their sound is remarkably fresh and accomplished for a fledgling band, give this a listen and go see their show
