Biography

Having formed over a mutual love of North American alternative rock, the 5 piece consisting of; Sarah Hall (vocals) James Hall (guitar/keys), Graeme Martin (guitars), Mark Brown (bass) and James King (drums) began playing local shows in their hometown of Newcastle (England) for their own enjoyment; However it wasn’t long until their melodic, melancholy songs took them to greater heights. The self released ‘’No Hot Ashes’’ garnered much local and national attention and with releases of singles ‘’Six Wolves’‘, ‘’Fast Fast’’ and ‘’Dirty Lakes’’ the band have twice been invited to the outstanding Maida Vale studios for both BBC Radio 6 and Radio 1. Dirty Lakes has also been included on Spotify’s ‘’Songs of 2011’’ list showcasing all the best music from the last year.

Within a year of playing their debut show in a small Newcastle pub, the band were invited by Eavis and Co to play Glastonbury festival in 2010 on the John Peel stage alongside; Foals, Florence and the Machine, The XX and Mumford and Sons.

As well as supporting the legendary Primal Scream at Electric Brixton for a special one off show, Let’s Buy Happiness toured the UK twice in 2011 with indie/pop success Frankie and The Heartstrings and the great We Were Promised Jetpacks gathering a large fan base on their travels. The band has also supported Idlewild, The Temper Trap, Vivian Girls, HEALTH, Sky Larkin and The Futureheads.
