Introduce yourselves and your hidden talent!
So we’re made up of Matt Spencer who plays lead guitar and me, Ewan McLeish and I’m on lead vocals and play guitar. We met through Matt’s older brother Luke who happens to be my best friend, and one day on a kayaking trip we decided to have a jam see where it took us.

Tell MoggBlog viewers about your latest release! What’s the inspiration behind that?
