The bouncing 2 piece indie band from the East Midlands were acclaimed as ‘One of the best festival bands we know’ by BBC Introducing after conquering every major festival stage in the country including Reading & Leeds.
With the release of their debut EP Sparks in 2016, Tin Pigeons quickly received national recognition when their single was named as BBC Radio One’s Introducing track of the week – gaining huge support from the likes of Huw Stephens, Greg James and Steve Lamacq. Major exposure has never stopped for the band, with their single ‘Home’ having plays on BBC 6 and their most recent single ‘always the Same’ being praised by top blogs.
