A mix of 70’s rock, garage-punk, post-punk riot grrl/punk pop. Someone described us recently as ‘shouty shit’.
Headbanging until you get a sore neck, screaming about sushi and losing yourself.
Cece, Clara, Maeve and Laura (all she/her).
Italy, Spain, Northern Ireland, and England.
We started performing in 2014, our first ever gig was at the George Tavern that summer as the original line up.
We started the band in 2014 in Clara’s room in South East London. We all love music and all had bands when we were teenagers, everything came along so naturally. Definitely living in London and going to gigs inspired us so much to start our own band. Maeve was doing her finals at uni and found the band through a friend working in a dive jazz bar in 2015.

WE ARE PROUDLY SUBCULTURE-INSPIRED. HOW ABOUT YOU?
Without the DIY punk scene and independent punk nights like DIY Thursdays supporting us so much in the beginning, we wouldn’t still be going. It’s a community forever striving to be more inclusive.
