The five-piece self-described “grit-pop powerhouse” have not only received strong support from their local BBC Introducing show but have had their music featured by the NME and placed in the BBC drama The Driver.

In 2013, Avi spent some time under the watchful eye of Duran Duran’s Dom Brown, recording The White EP. The band’s extensive touring has led to them sharing the stage with the likes of Amy Winehouse, Basement Jaxx, Example and Katy B. The band play the Picturedrome on May 26. Doors open at 7.30pm.
