Steve Heron / Bio

Steve Heron - Maker of Melodramatic Indie.

Since Steve's taking on most of the playing duties for his debut solo effort in November 2010, he has put together a collection of musicians to compliment his writing and general attitude to making music. In late summer 2011, after all separately attending an Arcade Fire gig and landing on the same musical page at the same time by pure happenstance... Or another big word like that.

Since late 2011 we've supported a number of acclaimed acts like Martin Rossiter (Gene) and Crybaby along with highly touted Scottish bands like Bwani Junction, Boycotts, Stanley Odd, The OK Social Club, Davey Horne and Aberfeldy all over the country. In summer 2011 Steve released an EP to preview a selection of songs that will feature on the next album which the band are working on at the moment. And while everyone is waiting for that, Steve and the band have been splitting their time between boosting their reputation as one of Edinburgh's best bands, writing and recording new songs and working on various music videos to follow up on the success of our video for the single 'Eleanor'.

Our sound has been likened to bands like The Smiths, Teardrop Explodes, Television, Talking Heads and The Lemonheads among others but we sum up our sound as Melodramatic Popular Song which to us means combining Johnny Marr style guitar with melodic bass lines, precision drums and honest lyrics to make music which feels familiar but is very hard to pigeon hole.
