They've been called crooners, doo-woppers and pure 50s pop escapism. We think they're just wonderful.
The harmonies are heavenly, the outlook is unashamedly sunny, the guitars are full of flatwound warmth, the rhythm section is cheeky is hell and those vocals are an absolutely sublime cocktail of flawless falsetto and earnest depth of emotion. Leave your cynicism at the door and drift away.
RAW MEAT: Tell us about your local music scene; what’s your favourite local venue, are there any record labels or stores that we should look up, what’s the scene like where you're from?
It's hard to feel local in London a lot of the time, but South London's had a pretty good run lately. Matt Maltese, Shame, Puma Blue - people like that.
A lot of my favourite venues are quite rapidly being turned into gastro pubs, it seems. But MOTH Club's probably a front-runner for my favourite venue now - anywhere with a sparkly glitter ceiling gets my vote. Union Chapel, too - nothing quite like tucking into a Tunnock's and a hot chocolate at a show.
Name one track or band that you love from the past.

What are you up to now?
We're recently moved into a new studio space and are soaking up the last of the summer wine.
What can we expect from you next?
Our new EP just out so we're super hyped to finally release that. And we're heading out on tour with Her's in October/ November, and cooking up some fresh hits before the year's out!
