What? Two-piece garage punk bank that give Royal Blood a run for their money.
From where? Tunbridge Wells.
What’s the story? These Kentish hell raisers have been making a fair racket for over a year now, cutting their teeth on the UK’s toilet circuit and stamping their hearty rock ‘n’ roll all over Bandcamp.
Like Black Keys meets Sleaford Mods, their sound channels the distinct swagger of US alt-rock with the hearty pessimism of English suburbia.
Song titles such as Where’s Your Car Debbie, based on a true event, add to the general air of wry disaffection, while their streamlined two-piece formula keeps the music taut and tense.
Early last year they charmed the pants off A&Rs at Virgin EMI and have spent the last few months putting together their anticipated debut album, which is expected soon.
With a place on the BBC Sound of 2015 poll in the bag, and a slot on March's extensive NME Awards tour, it looks like we’ll be hearing a lot more from these punk truants in the months to come.
Sounds like? Cockney punks jamming with Madness and Black Keys.
Predicted to? Do a roaring trade in t-shirt sales as the cult of Slaves takes hold among teenage rockers and punk heads everywhere.
Must hear? Latest single The Hunter, available now through Bandcamp.
