Formed in Chester in late 2014, the band’s debut EP No Fun was self-released in 2015. And sold out twice. This EP is five songs that will get lodged into your cranium and no matter how hard you try, you will submit and become a fan.

Five songs of infectious indie pop that will get a smile on your face and make you hit the replay button over and over again. The vocals are sweet, the choruses gooey enough to stick to teflon, and the music is not sloppy, but not perfect, just right for the poppy indie that they have created. This has the feel of something that could have come out back in the glory days of female indie bands back in the ’90s, but is so fresh that it doesn’t have the anger and bitterness of those times, even though the band isn’t always singing about happy things.

A band that has created a fan base on their own, without anyone hyping up the band to radio or labels and plays by their own rules… how cool is that? This is the kind of of band that really gets me excited and happy that I get the chance to hear new music and realize that there are bands out there that deserve to be praised and make you root for them. This is one of those bands.
