Although originally from the Isle of Man and residing in Brighton the band have strong ties to Cornwall. In fact guitarist/vox Jack Wolter is an avid surfer and general waterman. It’s also the county in which the band have always had a very positive response, particularly in Falmouth. Their dreamy indie sounds match the often mellow mood of Cornwall, it’s music designed for those beach days or winter coastal walks.
After a successful self release of their 2015 debut EP ‘Comfortably Swell’ they soon moved onto releasing their first album. After much anticipation and touring the band released ‘Until The Tide Creeps In’ into the world. The reception was overwhelmingly positive and the praise is currently still rolling in. In fact, Rough Trade added the album to their top 100 albums of 2019 just this week.
