Who: An alt duo formed in Wales last year 2017.

Sound:A unique take on British rock music, incorporating elements from
the infamous ‘Madchester’ scene, London’s punk movement, electro-rock,
Britpop, shoegaze and American garage havoc.”

Influences: The Stone Roses, Pavement, Oasis, , Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr,
The Cure, Jesus and The Mary Chain, Sticky Fingers, The National, Basement,
Spacemen 3, Television, Tame Impala, Gorillaz and Bodega

Score: Here’s a highly motivated and inspiring 2-piece hitting bullseye with their
striking debut EP, entitled Rest In Vain. An overall imposing firstborn notable for
its darksome sentiments, yet infectiously groovy tone. Here are five songs of which
each one can stand on its own. Different moods, different colors, different beats.
From the gloomy rocker On The Run, mixing Sonic Youth and Interpol to – Turn Up
The Volume’s favorite cut
– the reflective swagger of the title track injected with poetic
The Cure guitars. Opener Ace Ventura is family of the latter, sounding – thankfully – nothing like Jim Carrey and impressive closer Deja Vu feels like a slo-mo The Jesus
and Mary Chain
momentum on their way back from a nightmarish trip and Dry
Up Your Mind
‘s mid-tempo bass timbre feels claustrophobic. Hats off! Top debut!
This fresh duo will draw, unquestionably, your sonic attention. Discover them here…
