BIO

Marking the start of a whole new chapter for the Bury St. Edmunds outfit, the first cut of the new EP on Alcopop ‘Headlights’ showcases the trio’s brand of high-octane rock ‘n’ roll in remarkable style, spearheaded by the playful dual vocals of Kim Jarvis and Catherine Lindley-Neilson and ably supported by a relentless rhythm section and crescendo of epic punk riffage.

It’s not all fun and buoyant indie hits for Gaffa Tape Sandy though – and beneath the supple melodies there’s plenty to get your teeth into lyrically… “We wrote Headlights as an open embrace to anyone who finds it hard to talk about their mental health, and to serve as a reminder to check up on your loved ones in this busy stupid world”, the band stated. “We wanted the back-and-forth vocal play to feel and sound like a conversation, a playful way of communicating a message that we believe in. It’s important to be lovely to one another, and the people who have been lovely to us are the people who inspired this song”.

Heralded as one of NME’s 100 Essential Acts for 2018, the rising trio have developed an impressive live reputation supporting the likes of Indoor Pets, IDLES and Peace, whilst much-lauded displays at Glastonbury and Latitude(BBC Introducing)have lead to a slew of festival appearances (including The Great Escape and Truck) being lined up over the coming months.
