“Whatever the songs were at the time I scraped them off stage and into the studio, that’s how they remained – forever,” said bandleader Rachael Whittle. “Now, the intention is to deliberate more. Not just to view the studio as a place for exploring more daring ideas, but to make sure there’s real meaning and value attached to the end-result.”
Let it be known: the real turning point in Rachael’s approach arrived summer 2018. Reeling after the collapse of her band of five years (Newcastle’s fevered grunge-punks ILSER), she attended an all-female artist mentorship program coordinated by city creative hub Generator.
See them ‘pave’ the way into your soul at Hitthe North Festival, May.

Had too much fun making our @riversidencl debut with @alexhenryfoster & @realtrailofdead last night! Both bands were a masterclass in live rock performance, dynamics and building atmosphere. And they're friendly people to boot. The full package. The real deal! Hope you guys enjoy the remainder of your time here in the UK 💜 Also a big thanks to @ssdconcerts for having us. See you guys at @hitthenorthfest! 📷 – @lewispalmerphoto (big thanks to you as well, sir!)
