Tom (guitar), Joe (keys) and Nikki (vocals) have been playing together since 2012 with a different, much louder band: Felix Hagan & The Family. They bonded over being the more introverted, “quiet ones” of the bunch and decided to make some peaceful music together, with influences including the likes of Scott Walker, Toro y Moi and Bibio. Their latest single ‘Tuesday’ was selected by Tom Robinson for the BBC Introducing Mixtape. Between them they have played with & supported artists including Bear’s Den, Frank Turner, Everything Everything and Arkells, and have performed in venues including The O2 Arena and The Royal Albert Hall. They are delighted that their hometown festival will play host to their very first gig as new trio, Quietones.
