Introducing... more breakthrough music talent on BBC London.

Card sharps: the band have been making waves since touring with Pete Doherty and Golden Silvers

Where are you from?

We're from all over really. Pete and Chris are from St Ives in Cornwall, Brooke's from west Yorkshire, Danny's from Manchester and Laurel's from Totnes in Devon. But now London feels like home for all of us.

Names of band members and instruments played?

Peter Scott, singing and guitar; Chris Woodhead, guitar and singing; Laurel Sills, singing and other bits and bobs; Brooke Rogers, drums; and Danny Blackman, bass.

How long have you been making music?

We've all been in various bands before, but we've been playing together for just over a year now.

Style of music and influences?

That's always a hard one. Maybe... alternative... indie... pop? In terms of influences, My Bloody Valentine, The Beatles and The Lemonheads.

Best moment so far?

It's a toss up between the launch for our single Photobooth earlier in 2009 - it was amazing to have a crowded room singing along to our songs; recording the new EP with producer Stephen Street and supporting Pete Doherty at Shepherds Bush Empire.

What song would you most like to cover?

Wicked Game by Chris Isaak.

Visit Exlovers on MySpace, right, for more information. The track that brought them to our attention is the band's new single, You Forget So Easily, released on Chess Club Records on 14 September 2009.
