Having risen from the ashes of the much lauded Murry The Hump – once labelled by Alex James of Blur as ‘the best new band in Britain’, counting Damien Hirst and the late Joe Strummer as fans and notching up several John Peel sessions – Keys are a band whose musical pedigree cannot be argued with.
They’ve captured the imagination of industry and public alike with recent release ‘Fire Inside’ & ‘Bitten By Wolves’, garnering praise and support from Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Clash magazine, Metro, BBC 6 Music, Radio 2, Shindig!, Mark Lamarr and BBC Radio Wales’ Adam Walton and Bethan Elfyn.
Drawing on a range of quality influences from Animal Collective, Captain Beefheart, Can, Spirit, The Black Keys, Frank Zappa, Panda Bear and Spiritualized, The Keys adeptly blend together the new and the old, sitting alongside the likes of Super Furry Animals, The Coral, Malachai, Tame Impala and The Bees
Keys’ new album ‘Ring the Changes’ is due for release in early 2014.
