Formed in 2004, in St Andrews, they are David MacGregor (voice & guitar), Dan Sheehy (drums), Kate Lazda (voice & guitar), and Rose McConnachie (voice & bass). Over the past few years they’ve been busy writing and perfecting their noble craft, playing a barrage of live shows; notable gigs include opening for Joy Zipper, KT Tunstall, King Creosote, Camera Obscura, Glasvegas and Emma Pollock.
After re-locating to Edinburgh in 2006 they have performed at a number of festivals including The Wickerman Festival, The Fence Homegame (for the last three years), goNorth and Glasgow’s ‘La Fete de la Musique’ - as well as receiving national radio airplay on Steve Lamacq’s BBC Radio 1 show and on Vic Galloway’s Radio 1 and Radio Scotland shows.
In 2007 Smash Hits was Single of the Week on Jim Gellatly’s XFM show and a video of the single was featured on The Music Show on BBC2.
Second single “Couldn’t Dance/Teenage Fanclub Song”, released June 2008, has received yet more airplay than its predecessor, including in North America and Europe, with the band featuring as Jim Gellatly’s XFM X-posure artist in its week of release.
Their two singles so far have been released on Straight to Video Records to critical and popular acclaim, with two more planned before 2008 is done. A debut LP will follow.
