They’ve played local festivals including Grampian Pride and Wolfstock, a Sofar Sounds Aberdeen gig, Glasgow’s Queens of Noise, King Tut’s Summer Nights and they’ve also performed as far afield as Norway. They’ve gained airplay on ShmuFM and Amazing Radio and been championed by smaller blogs such as Discovery Music, video interview platform Vintage Music Society and Purculture. The band have supported UTR favourites The Vegan Leather and Rascalton and their next live outing is on Saturday at Aberdeen’s Beach Ballroom with rising stars The Snuts, followed by a Drummonds show on 19 October supporting Walt Disco.
