The buzz so far This London-based duo – vocalist Hatty Taylor and guitarist Nigel Firth – had a swift ascent to fame when a demo in April 2009 was played on Radio One, winning them a Tom Robinson Maida Vale slot and an appearance on the BBC Introducing stage at that year’s Glastonbury festival. That November’s debut single Long Way Down cemented their chunky guitar riffs, atmospheric electronica and Taylor’s haunting vocals as heard on follow up EP Liar Liar. Currently beavering away on a debut LP.

The Critics say “‘Portishead doing a Tarantino soundtrack’” Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1
