Debut Album Produced By Oli Jacobs (The 1975, Harry Styles, Pale Waves) Out This Summer
Band Premieres Music Video
“Singer Shane Callaghan delivers some impressive vocals over the driving rhythms of this glittering UK rock banger. The slick and seductive verses give way to the towering chorus that explodes with the raging drums, fiery riffing and Callaghan’s ascending rock falsetto.”- Backseat Mafia
“They pull out all the stops and circle back with passion and energy. The way the band curates the song into an anthem is masterful while their sound stands on its own.”- Closed Captioned
“A force to be reckoned with. A sound that is both fresh and nostalgic, and “Devil Inside Me” is a shining example of that. The guitar riffs are simply awesome, and the high-energy instrumentals will transport you back to the glory days of late 90s attentive rock. The fiery track packs a punch and leaves a lasting impression.”- Folk N Rock
“Big, highly infectious, guitar-heavy tracks…”- Northern Exposure
“The Coolest Song in the World”- Little Steven’s Underground Garage/SiriusXM

Recorded at Real World Studios and produced by Grammy Award winning Oli Jacobs, who has previously worked with Harry Styles and The 1975, “Girl You Got Me” tells the story “When you believe you’re set not to fall in love again after previous heartaches, that one person comes around and catches you while you’re weak and brings you back to your feet – But at the same time you’re on your knees caught up in love !”
In 2021, the band’s single, ‘Dr Jones’ managed to start their rise to success with it featuring on BBC Radio 2 – The Rock Show with Johnnie Walker and also numerous plays on Planet Rock with Wyatt featuring the track on his show “The New Rock Show”. Not long after the release of “Friendly Fire,” they were contacted by BBC Introducing Wales presenter “Adam Walton” to air the track on the station.
The first single, “Holy” from the band’s debut EP in 2022 gained a huge amount of airplay around the globe. Apart from plays on BBC and numerous independent stations in the UK, it was “The Coolest Song in the World” for a week in Little Steven’s Underground Garage on Sirius XM across North America. Further singles from the EP ‘Shoot Them Down’ and ‘Rockstar’ continued the success garnering swathes of airplay.
