They drive a hard bargain then…
They paid Arctic Monkeys/Richard Hawley producer Alan Smyth in kind for his services on their forthcoming debut album Know The Joy Of Good Living – by helping him renovate his studio first.
What do they sound like?
Rootsy pop/rock with boy/girl vocal dynamic, courtesy of co-vocalist Alice Faraday, who contributes to the overall Deacon Blue vibe. Their influences include Bruce Springsteen, Vampire Weekend and red wine and extend to "Runrig" and "Scotland".
What others are saying:
"A well-crafted, grown-up and thoroughly enjoyable strain of pop" – The Times
"The Steel City's answer to Fleetwood Mac" – Sandman Magazine
