Early in 2013, effects pedal mad guitarist Tony Arnott (formally of Pencil In and Chaotix) was recruited to ‘beef up’ the sound and push the boundaries of the songwriting.

The line-up was completed when drummer Daniel Kerr (formally of Goonies Never Say Die) joined in September 2013.

After the arrivals of Arnott and Kerr the band sound exploded into a raunchy and pulsating style of indie-rock, while still maintaining the distinct, soothing vocal melodies of frontman Alan Gillhespy.”

Here at LEP Towers we’ve had the song on a loop, and it’s a well crafted slice of rolling guitars. It’s described by ZME Music as: “Throughout this EP, the vocal melodies and choruses are both catchy and memorable.”
