On the playlist: Peasant's King - Antidotes

Introducing online producer

Anitidotes by Peasant's King is the latest BBC Introducing track on the Radio 1 playlist. The South Wales band will have their track played by daytime DJs, including Greg James, Dev and Scott Mills, all this week. Listen to Anitdotes now and be sure to read up on the group below.

Hometown: The quintet formed in Church Village, a small town near Pontypridd, earlier this year. Antidotes is their debut single - not bad going at all.

Style: Peasant's King are fully charged pop rock outfit geared for the charts. Antidotes is a big, emotional rock anthem with a groove. Like the recent work of Elbow and Kings Of Leon, it's perfectly constructed to get you singing from the rooftops and yes, there is a girl choir... and yes, there are strings!

You need to know: While the majority of the band are still studying, drummer Harry is a climbing instructor. *Insert your climbing the charts gag here*

Supported by: Antidotes was first played by Bethan Elfyn on BBC Radio Wales.
