Their songs begin with an idea but never ends the same way. It’s a continual process, with each member blending ideas and shaping the song toward the right direction. They go through several incarnations and the stories find their way through their innovative sound.  

“You’re always a slave to the song. You don’t just try and squeeze a solo in, you push the boundaries until it all comes together. We adopt a fearless approach when it comes to exploring new sounds, creating the spark and energy that is Catalysts“.   They continue: “This is an excitingperiod;we’ve lovedbeing able to release the first six singles on our own terms which has given us the opportunity to reach as many people as possible. There is abuzzto get back into the studio withournewideas and new music,that we hope willpushthe band’s sound furtherthan ever before”.

Quirky story:

“A mouthy little kid came to watch an old band Elliot & Dave was in (The Kennedy Soundtrack) at Sheffield’s Round House. He kept going on about how his band would be bigger than them and every other band… Turned out he was right; it was Ollie Sykes of Bring Me the Horizon”.
