From the backyard to the big stages

Backyards are yet another great Leeds export making a big impression in a short amount of time. The quintet formed in 2010 through an obsession with musical experimentation and that shines through on their releases so far. It’s thoughtful indie music in the vein of Two Door Cinema Club and The Postal Service founded on driving drums and rhythms up against the delicate vocals shared between Bryan Serwatka and Ben Styles.

In February 2012, they released their debut EP If You’re Scared which is sure to get a welcome airing at Reading & Leeds Festival.
