Since releasing our first single of the year, we’ve had a ton of support from some of our favourite radio DJs including the main man Huw Stephens who made Friends his Tip of the Week, Phil Tagga...
COLOSSAL THANKS to the BBC Radio 1's Huw Stephens, Radio X's John Kennedy, the team at Amazing Radio and all the online stations from Siberia to Scunthorpe who played Swimming, as well as all the bloggers below who took time to listen and write a few kind words about it.
