“We grew up watching MTV for hours on end, so it's a huge honour to be visiting the ISLE OF MTV! We have been taking a break from performing recently to work on our new album.

Having outsold One Direction with global sales in 2014, the all producing, songwriting, performing and self-directing group have enjoyed a couple of ground breaking years.

Released off their 2014 debut album ‘New Eyes’ – the musically diverse compilation charted at Number Three in the UK and spawned four UK Top Five singles. To date, the band - Jack Patterson, Luke Patterson, Grace Chatto and Neil Amin Smith have sold over 12 million singles and 1.6 million albums worldwide! Their current single ‘Tears’ featuring Louisa Johnson is out NOW.
