For the past year, they’ve been tucked away in a Leith basement, writing and rehearsing, and released their self-titled EP (produced by David Lloyd of Stillhound / Discopolis) at the beginning of the month. The results are marvellous; epic guitar riffs, infectious vocal melodies, tight staccato drums and samples – a brilliant debut. Single, Mainline received a spin on Vic Galloway’s BBC Radio Scotland show last week and you can watch the video for our favourite Not At All at https://youtu.be/ti72gxc0xJg
