We’re a jangly, fuzzy guitar band who like to hang around the Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire border. Band members are:
Jolly - bass, keyboards, vocals.
Joy - main vocals and anything else she can lay her hands on.
Happy - guitars, vocals.
And we all swap instruments and attempt drums.
If asked, we describe ourselves as ‘independently unpolished with dashes of introspection, cynicism, irony and humour’. Tom Robinson describes us
as ‘upbeat, feel good grooving sprinkled with lovely original twists’ and ‘life affirming - like a small palate-cleansing scoop of delicious lemon sorbet’.
We first got together musically in 2016 - having known each
other for quite some time through other local bands. None of us had been doing any music for a while and we missed it but we didn’t miss the hassles and falling-outs that being in a band often entails! One night - over too many G&T’s - we decided
that we wanted to have a go at making music together. The next morning - over a sobering coffee or two - we agreed not to discuss it anymore and just get on with it.
So, we’ve been writing, recording and sharing what we’ve come up with on
Soundcloud, Spotify and other social media outlets.
Whenever we get positive responses and interest our collective energies surge, our creativity ignites and we head off into our fun world again.
We currently have no plans to extensively tour
the world - we’re happy to remain firmly plugged-in to our own electrical sockets with the blinds down and the kettle on.
Despite being quite a reclusive band with modest ambitions - we love our music to be heard outside of our own heads!
So far, we’ve had lots of radio play and positive feedback from the likes of Tom Robinson (BBC Radio 6), Dean Jackson (BBC Introducing East Midlands) and Exile Radio amongst others. We’ve also been chosen several times as a Fresh On The Net
And now we find ourselves currently nearing completion of our second album - which makes us very happy!
