With over 100k streams on Spotify, features on several Spotify Editorial playlists and new music in the works this is an exciting time for the band as they cement their name on the list of ‘One’s To Watch’.
The band are set to release their latest single ‘Mundane Ecstasy’ on July 7th with a single launch Upstairs in Whelan’s on July 8th with support from Lauren Ann.​
