Sly Antics are cousins Sam and Lee Hudson plus another chap called Chris, and they make noise that feels like being hit hard in the face with a box of stale cereal.

They have been pioneering their dirty pop rock sound ever since releasing their debut EP Captive City, receiving a massive response from national radio and press including Radio X and BBC Introducing.

Their live shows are described as ‘Raucous and ear blistering’ following a heap of huge festival appearances including Dot to Dot and Tramlines plus sold out tour dates across the UK in 2017 with their single Motion. In 2018, Sly Antics released single Sunday Fear plus music video featuring Misfits and Line of Duty’s Craig Parkinson.

It won’t be long before Sly Antics are dominating the world with their gorgeous racket.
