After returning to Liverpool from London in 2016 singer-songwriter Martin felt compelled to refine his lo-fi sound, and teamed up with drummer Tony McPartland to create these songs that encompass their upbringing in South Liverpool.
Although they’re only a two piece, they certainly have a big sound that will catch your attention with shimmery guitar work and lyrics that jar with the uplifting feel of the song.
Their newest single ‘Flatsharing is a Terrible Idea‘ is a brash and unapologetic track written about ‘generation rent’ and the hazards of flatsharing. Martin discusses the background of the track,
“A generation has been sold the idea of social mobility when for many people, the ladder has been pulled up. It’s about not being able to afford your own place and having to forfeit your private life and your sanity, just so you can chase some unrealistic dreams in the city with other homesick kids with useless degrees and roots up North.”
