Brighton's favourite Sons
Brothers Lee and Nick Meldrum burst onto the scene in 2016. It’s been a high octane time for Brighton two-piece SONS, who are signed to emerging label 'End Of The Trail Creative.' (Family Jools/PipHall).
Darlings of incendiary rock n’ roll club night 'This Feeling, all their singles have been heavily rotated by indie/rock radio luminaries Steve Lamacq, Huw Stephens, John Kennedy and Alex Baker - as well as impressing the likes of Kerrang Magazine, Clash Music and Team Rock. They also have two live radio sessions under their belt, for Radio X and BBC Introducing.
Meanwhile, the band have taken their cacophonous live set on the road, gigging up and down the country with highlight sets at Reading Festival, Isle Of Wight Festival, The Great Escape, Camden Rocks, a European tour in 2018 and most recently Obstwiesen festival, Germany.
With explosive vocal melodies and buzzsaw riffs that could wake the dead, if you like it loud, anthemic with sharp and catchy hooks you’ll love SONS!
