The band were all wear t-shirts saying "I Was Killed By The Spring Offensive."
At the launch of their debut EP, the Spring Offensive blew the roof off the Jericho Tavern.
Flanked by a partisan core, the large crowd were dancing, clapping and chanting along with tracks which induced participation.
Their mix of teen-angst with musical talent and confidence on stage gave a performance beyond what was expected.
The standard of tracks remained at a high constant throughout their long-ish set.
They boldly performed a number of songs for the first time outside of their garage, while the reaction they received from them suggested they had been out a lot longer.
Indie-pop would be an unfair description of their music. Listening to their set they seemed oddly difficult to pigeon-hole: a mix of energetic guitars and big drum beats, matched at times with baroque-twanged melody with dollops of funk.
In matching "I was killed by the Spring Offensive" t-shirts, their merchandising branch has already begun in earnest with screaming fans also brandishing them!
The boys, who all met at Radley, are due to move in together as they focus on their band. Certainly another Oxfordshire group to look out for.
