Having confidently stepped into the spotlight with their performance
of ‘Chillers’on ‘Later… with Jools Holland’ in October 2018, the

playing their biggest ever show to date at London’s Village
Underground and releasing a plethora of unflinching, cinematic tracks,
with politically charged lyrics and apt social observations.
Vocalist and lyricist Catrin Vincent had to say on the track – “Brave
Face was written for a friend ending a bad relationship. I saw so many
parallels between her situation and my own. The lyric “you put on your

Records; this is just the beginning for this ferociously talented,

The band have also announced a string of UK shows, tickets are on sale
this Friday (7thFebruary).
