Reliably informed


Venn Records

Released 12.04.24






A Manchester band that plants itself solidly in the same vein as their contemporaries in this post-punk, post-Brexit, post-anything bloody thing in this wasted land commercial hell-scape we find ourselves forced into, but we’re damn well gonna make a thing out of it.

There’s a hard-edged stare to these youngsters that lifts them up, and they are fully aware that they learned their craft in the full glare of all, as they now deliver an accomplished collection of crystal clear, anthemic, punk-inflected rock. They All Lied To Me, Big Business and As The World Eats Itself are a fitting triumvirate to hook up to “does it have to be like this”. Hell yeah, solid stuff man!
