The ever-brilliant band, who’ve just returned from a tour of mainland Europe, have been our Yorkshire faves for a few years now – well, since they started, really – and it’s great to see them go from strength to strength.
Their new single Friends is a sure-fire smash – driving guitars, sweet-as-you-like-it harmonies and bounce-along choruses. It has a sharp, urgent sound harnessing their joyous live vibes in a pop-perfect three minutes.
