We are SONS a two-piece from Brighton U.K. and have been together since January 2016. After uploading three demos at the start of last year we were on the bill for landmark gigs like This Feeling, The Great Escape Festival, Camden Rocks and Club Fandango within months.

“Fantastic! What a track! Been such a big track on the show over many many months" - John Kennedy, Radio X.
“Championed by BBC Introducing South.” - Huw Stephens, R1
"Bringing the punk thunder, making more racket than two tennis professionals. This is an absolute banger." - Alex Baker, Kerrang Radio.
"Do you know what man? That is a good record, I love angry music and that is expertly done." - Phil Taggart, Radio 1
“Loved this track when I heard it. That is good isn’t it!” - Melita Dennet - BBC Introducing South, Sussex & Surrey
“Crafted a glorious racket there, loved it! - Charlie Ashcroft, Amazing Radio.
"Brothers Lee and Nick Meldrum hit you with such sheer velocity and volume you are sure to still be vibrating long after their set has concluded. Combining relentlessly driving drone with catchy punk hooks, why smack them with a wall of sound when you can cover them with concrete? Words don't cover it, people really need to see them live for the full glory!'
