"Sweetness are an upbeat, rock and roll infused, post-punk trio; combining witty lyrics with infectious guitar riffs. Bringing deeper teenage insight to modern indie, the Doncaster band released their debut demo EP, "An Honest Man", in 2018. Their debut single, “Pretty”, has proved popular live at gigs, and was released in Spring 2019. With a great reception, the single received many positive reviews together with and abundance of radio play and a gaining of new fans. A follow up single, "Sing, Don't Shout" is expected late Summer, further exploring a rockabilly addition to their distinct jangle sound.
Their tunes have been featured multiple times on BBC Introducing radio shows, with a superb reaction to their lyrical integrity and indie, cross-genre vibe.
A 3-piece band formed in February 2018 with frontman: Aedan Butler, bringing his British charm and charisma. This is evidently translated into his lyrically specialised songwriting - enhanced by a multitude of musical ability from several genres and eras. Behind him is Drummer, Ryan Moore, giving it his all propping up the tunes with suitable, but sometimes contrasting drum beats, allowing the music to wash languidly over the top. Completing the lineup is Jacob Turnbull on bass. Bridging the gap between Aedan's chords and Ryan's drums; the basslines add an underlying layer of smoothness with hints of energetic funk for people to dance to.
Starting out small, the band have quickly gained traction, moving up the stage times to start headlining. They have gigged Doncaster frequently at well-known venues including The Leopard and The Social Bar, and soon found a second home in Sheffield, regularly playing the likes of Record Junkee & Cafe Totem and debuted at the infamous Leadmill in August 2018. Sweetness are always looking to gig further afield; getting a taste for venues outside their locality when they played at Camden's famous Dublin Castle. Adding to their roster of locations, they have also played gigs in Leeds, Barnsley & Nottingham. The trio recently played their biggest gig yet, to a sold-out capacity at the O2 Academy, Sheffield and continue to expand their horizons as this summer sees many more gigs and festivals, alongside new music and many other exciting opportunities."
