Formed in a summer haze back in 2016, LEECHES set out to meld infectious pop hooks and fuzzy alt-rock, and somehow ended up with the perfect mix. Their debut EP, 'Strange Bonds’ was released in early 2017 via Leisure Records, with the follow up EP ‘WATUSI’ seeing release less than a year later in the early moments of 2018. Both EP’s are a trip through duo's thoughts and whimsy, blending the trio's arena-sized guitar licks with their lo-fi bedroom-pop approach to production (ie. they were recorded in producer Alfie Tyson Brown's bedroom).
Since the success of their releases, the band have headlined raucous shows in London, Bournemouth, Southampton and their adopted home of Bristol, whilst also supporting the likes of Sunflower Bean, The Magic Gang, Sorry, Spring King, Kagoule, Skegss, Ulrika Spacek and many more. LEECHES also emerged victorious at the Bestival ‘Invaders of the Future’ competition, and subsequently wowed, (and maybe confused) festival-goers in the early hours of the morning.
