“Absolutely fantastic”
Gareth Lloyd, BBC Introducing

“You may not have heard of this brand-new London-based duo yet – but undoubtedly, you soon will. Taken from their debut album, Where We Are, their debut single is chirpy, poppy and summery, while still managing to sound super-cool. Which is quite a feat. Not quite like anything I’ve heard before, I’d like to say they’re ‘the new....’ – but there’s no-one to compare them against. Let’s just say they’re the new them. Be the very first to have this on your iPod and you’ll be the coolest cat in town – and one of the happiest, too.”
Debbie McQuoid, Cosmopolitan

Southgate and Leigh supported Joan in Aldershot in 2012
