UK alt rock band based in Camden.
In 2006 armed with a fist full of songs, one hundred pounds sterling and an unshakeable sense of self belief, Jimi had travelled from Poole on the south coast, to the Towers and the Smoke that is London, a city he hoped capable of meeting his own ambitions. Finding residence in Highgate, under the shadow of Karl Marx, Jimi threw together some trusted pieces of recording kit and set to work on the masterplan. The first accomplice, discovered whilst schmoozing the back bar of the Dublin Castle was the evocative Tish. Possessed of a vitriolic glare with the gleam of steel, 'neath trailing waves of jet black hair, her youthful stomping ground had been the graffiti mauled streets of South East London. In her was the rhythm. A classically trained pianist with a true sense of harmony. Initially joining to take care of the samples and string arrangements she turned her attention to the more formidable task of playing bass. Over numerous bottles of wine, the band was starting to happen; Jimi's plan was gathering speed. Gigs at Dublin Castle, Lark in the Park, Fly London followed as well as some UK gigs.
In June 2007 the band signed a single deal for "Burnt by the Sun" with Organic Records which sees them release the track in the late summer of 2007.
