Together since 2012, the quartet of Jay, Pete, Maxwell and Jess have been performing some well-received shows in and around their hometowns of Lancaster and Kendal.
They released the debut single, Ritual, in May 2015 and spent the summer touring, including dates at Liverpool Sound City, Bushstock, The Great Escape and Kendal Calling festivals, plus support slots with Jack Garratt and Eaves.
In the autumn, the band moved to Manchester to record their debut album, offering an EP, also titled Ritual, on the major label Columbia. 2016 will be a big year for them.
