We had these guys in our Rising Stars list of 2013 with the likes of Tom Odell, The 1975 etc… They’ve finally released their first album today – in 2014 in case anyone needs reminding – so perhaps I was a little too hasty in my predictions back in 2012. For some people it seemingly happens over night, look at London Grammar, JUNGLE, Royal Blood etc and then there’s others like CHAMPS who get loads of hype around a song back in 2012 and then nobody hears anything from them for a year or so and then BAM ‘here’s an album’! I’ve been listening to the album non-stop since it was made publicly available for consumption to the ears, and I rate it as one of my favourites of 2013 thus far, alongwith James Vincent McMorrow, Arthur Beatrice and Tycho. Watch the new video for St Peter’s and stream the album here.
