We have been playing together for fun since we were little, but professionally for the last few years.

Opening for Little Mix on their 15 date Summer Hits Stadium Tour of the UK in July 2018.

If you could go on tour with any current band or artist, who would it be and why?
Probably Ed Sheeran – he is an incredible songwriter, puts on an epic live show, and seems like a really genuine guy.

Freddie Mercury on Lead Vocals, Lindsey Buckingham & Orianthi on Guitar, Sting on Bass, Justin Bieber on Drums, Bethanie Earle (our tour manager) on Djembe, Iggy Azalea on a feat. rap, & MJ dancing.

Strong energetic vibes, edgy guitars, pumping drums and bass, soaring breakout choruses, and loads of harmonies.
Do any of you have any pre-gig or post gig rituals? If so, what and why?
Georgia is usually pacing backstage or jumping up and down, Clara is hitting things with her drum sticks, and Ella is complaining about being at the stage too early haha.
What would your ultimate rider be if you could have anything without being accused of being a diva?
If we were to browse your music library what is the most embarrassing song we might find? Or who is your guilty pleasure artist?
Probably songs we recorded of ourselves when we were little. Georgia would write funny songs for Mum and Dad as Christmas presents, and we would record our versions of funny songs for our grandparents and cousins. Kinda cute but super embarrassing haha.
