Featuring members of Breakfast Muff, The Yawns, Spinning Coin, Lush Purr, Kaputt, and Rocky Lorelei, the supergroup have come together to bless our ears with their jangly riffs, and intricate harmonies.
We're v excited to have Hairband play our website launch party in Glasgow as they join our lineup of other femme music makers. In prep for our party, they've put together a playlist of the musicians that inspire them the most for you to wrap your ears around.
