First up is the brilliant new video for current single ‘Hello Hello’. The single, which is another perfectly crafted glittering pop gem, has already amassed over half a million streams, has been heavily supported by Radio 1’s Mistajam, Adele, Alice Levine and Cell Spellman and was Huw Stephens ‘Track Of The Week’ last week. The video has been directed by Rob Brandon, as sees the band auditioning for a part under intense instruction, and at the end see’s band member Jack Wilson getting a tattoo – launching the fan completion to chose his next inking.

The band have just been announced to support The Kooks on their massive headline tour in May (including a show at London’s Alexandra Palace on the 13th). They have also been confirmed to play the brand new Community Festival with Catfish and the Bottlemen in Finsbury Park in July, Secret Garden Party shortly after thant and on to Reading And Leeds in August.
