Hometown: They’re from Silverdale in Lancashire.

Style: Their dreamy electronic pop has seen comparisons to The XX and London Grammar.

You Need To Know: Although they started out in different bands making grunge rock and metal music, they’re now making wistful, beautiful piano-led music. They’re playing on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury.

Supported By: BBC Introducing in Lancashire are big fans of these guys and Huw Stephens made them his ‘BBC Introducing Tip of the Week’ earlier this year. Lily Allen also mentioned that she was a fan during a recent interview.
