Bio: Having spent their formative years listening to bands like Braid, Hundred Reasons, The Dismemberment Plan, The Faint and Tears for Fears, when Scholars write songs they tend to leave traces of influences all over the place, but hope what they end up with just sounds like…Scholars.

“Scholars are a band I have heard mentioned a lot recently, their name seems to be cropping up in many magazines, blogs and various websites, most of the time this comes with comparisons to Hundred Reasons, Hell Is For Heroes, etc. They sound like pretty much the perfect band, too good to be true, surely? Based on this double A side record, not necessarily. ‘Tornadoes’ is a track that is just as good as anything the aforementioned bands did, it’s got the heavy guitars, strong vocals and a great chorus and after a few listens it’s easy to see why this band have got peoples tongues wagging. ‘Fractures’ takes everything that was good about ‘Tornadoes’ and does it even better, and only further cements this bands place firmly at the top of the current UK music scene. Cannot recommend this band/release enough, check it out and you might find your new favourite band. 4.5/5”
