THE BALCONY

Who are you?– Forming in the new year of 2019, we quickly realised our strengths and began writing melodic, guitar-driven tracks with soaring vocals and lyrics that tell a powerful story.

And basically just carrying on playing lots of gigs and festivals, never getting played on the BBC, always being tired and overworked, trying to unpack the impact of BoJo being in Number 10, that the world is burning and that we are on the brink of WW3… And trying to fuck all that shit up.
