"Our main aspiration is to get a record deal at the moment along with playing as many gigs as we can," the band say.
"We have been playing with each other for two years now and absolutely love to make music together. Our debut album, Three to One, is on Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music and more.
"We've been playing gigs with Garageland for the past while and we recently played Fibbers in Dublin and we can’t wait to play there again on March 10."
