Named as Radio 1’s Jack Saunders' 'Next Wave', and supported in DIY’s Neu section as “steadily rising the indie rock ranks”. Hailing from Liverpool, Bandit take influence from the likes of Fontaines D.C, Cage The Elephant, and The Strokes, twisting personal experiences into unapologetic anthems firing dominant choruses straight from the notebook of frontman Nat Waters. Holding the title of being one of the UK's 'Hot New Bands' on Spotify, the quartet's debut EP, Here's To Being Alive, is a brash tale of nights out, the journey of being in love, and the celebration of life's experiences.
