Her’s are Stephen Fitzpatrick and Audun Laading. Liverpool’s premier crank-pop duo have birthed a catalogue of tunes causing an epidemic case of the jives. Echoing the gauzy slacker sound of Mac DeMarco with guitars that chime like The Smiths, they channel the surreal and the sublime through a twist of technicolour tropicalia. A wistful tenderness inhabits the architecture of their perfect oddball pop, winning them fans at BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, DIY, The Guardian, Stereogum and Hype Machine. In 12 months, the band have been making audiences hips shake, from Green Man to The Great Escape, Benicassim to SXSW.
