With their completely 'D.I.Y' approach to making music, their debut single 'Alive' was realeased in June 2020 which was produced and mixed by frontman Isaac Holmes at 'Koopa Studios'.
With two singles currently released, Lies have quickly gained a following. Their next single is to be released this summer and will combine modern rock with pop punk.

Contraband is a quartet of dashing young men who have all been singing for at least 50 years.
The band evolved from a secret wine-drinking, cheese-eating club that meets up every Monday night, and inevitably led to raucous off-key singing around midnight, a proud tradition we uphold to this day.
The style is capella. Recently we were invited to sing at Her Majesty's Prison in Wrexham. We can now say that Contraband has been legally brought into the prison!
Caution: the hairs on the back of your neck may take a while to settle back down!
