Decimals are Gethin Pearson (24), Alex Pennie (23) and Alun Thomas (23). The trio craft three minute elecrto-indie-pop masterstrokes using synths, laptops and guitars in a basement studio in South Wales.

Collectively, they have sixty years of listening; they know pop-music inside out. They discovered Phil Spector through listening to the Ramones; they've had The Who, New Order and Dire Straits pushed upon them through long car journeys with their dads and overheard Roxy Music, Paula Abdul and The Police with their mums.

Alex Pennie is no stranger to fame, having been the screamy one in The Automatic before he quit the band in 2007. He's been on Never Mind The Buzzcocks, collaborated with yourcodenameis:milo, and tried has hand at presenting on Radio 1 when Zane Lowe was off in 2007. In their short time together, Decimals have already done a session for Bethan Elfyn on Radio 1 in Wales, had airplay from Tom Robinson on 6 Music, and had features written about them in RockSound and the NME.
