History

Formation and early beginnings

The band came together when they were 14 years old and attending their local secondary school. The band grew from being a simple pastime as the boys won their final year talent contest in 2013 – performing a cover of Muse’s “Knights of Cydonia”. They played their first London gig at the Camden Assembly and signed a recording deal with Transgressive Records. They released their debut EP, ‘Koso’ in 2013 and produced their second EP, ‘Miss World’ by the end of 2015.

2016–present: That’s Your Lot

The band released their debut album through Transgressive in 2017. The album was made up of 12 tracks and received generally positive reviews. They worked with producer Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Adele, Bombay Bicycle Club) to record the album. New member Scott Roach featured on the band’s latest headline tour and is set to feature on the band’s upcoming second album.

The band released the single Catatonic Skinbag in February 2019.
