Arts & Culture

Harry Lyon, Andy Wynn, Isaac White, and Charlie Yapp are proper dapper lads, all sharp suits and suave looks. As long­time friends they are bonded by a love of music from the 60’s to the 90’s. Motivated by ‘wanting to be just like’ Lennon/McCartney, Marr/Morrissey and Noel Gallagher they started jamming, but there is a real sense from reading interviews with the boys that they are genuinely focused on the hard work ahead of them. In the first few days of January they lept into what looks like it will be a frenetic year for the Sheffield four­piece when they unveiled their self­ described ‘demo’, Katie Come Home on Soundcloud having had it premiered the previous day on Xfm by John Kennedy. Shortly thereafter Jo Good at Xfm and Sheffield’s BBC Introducing programme also gave the track support. It’s gone on to chart across national radio and DJs  are sure to squeeze the pips out of this bright melodic track. Upcoming live appearances include Live at Leeds and Sheffield’s Tramlines Festival where they will appeal to audiences of The Strypes and Jake Bugg. Key Track: Katie Come Home
