Hereford-based indie band, who've already had demos on BBC Radio 1 and a live session at BBC Maida Vale.
Pencil Toes are from Hereford, and met at the end of 2006. They played their first local show at the start of 2007, and by August had a personal invite from The Gossip to open two UK shows in front of 2000+ sell-out crowds (their first shows outside of Hereford).
By the end of the year Steve Lamacq, Huw Stephens and Colin Murray had all played demo tracks by the band on BBC Radio 1.
Artrocker magazine featured another demo track on their December covermount CD, and drummer Alex became the first member of the band to turn 18.
A publishing deal with Domino Records kicked off an exciting 2008, closely followed by a live session at BBC Maida Vale, courtesy of the Friday Session Introducing on BBC Hereford & Worcester.
Musically the band will appeal to fans of Bloc Party, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Be Your Own Pet, etc.
They play upbeat post-punk, with poppy and dancey elements.
In 2008, the band changed their line-up because of university commitments.
You can listen to all the latest music from across the two counties on the Friday Session Introducing... every week from 7pm, on BBC Hereford & Worcester.
