JUNE EXPOSURE – Screech Bats

Time and time again the music universe has proved that sometimes it’s the Plan B projects that really pack a punch. When Kit Reeves and Lexi Clark were members of melodic punk-rock band Hearts Under Fire, they joined forces with bassist Rio Hellyer and vocalist Esme Baker to start a side band.

Lower Than Atlantis – Concorde 2, Brighton – LIVE REVIEW
