Formed in 2008 by frontman Conor O’Brien, the band came to prominence with the release of their debut album Becoming a Jackal, which went on to be shortlisted for the 2010 Mercury Prize and the Choice Music Prize.

Since then, they’ve gone onto release two more albums, with their most recent, Darling Arithmetic winning the Ivor Novello award for Best Album.

Now, the band are pending release of their fourth album The Art Of Pretending To Swim, having already released tracks ‘Trick of the Light’ and ‘Fool’.
