FOR FANS OF: BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB, EVERYTHING EVERYTHING, MYSTERY JETS
Taking the name of their lead singer, Banfi is made up of Joe Banfi (vocals), Aaron Graham (Drums) and Chris McCuaig (Bass). The UK trio came together in 2015 when Chesire-born Joe was introduced to Aaron by a mutual friend. Both had embarked on different musical ventures, but in coming together, swiftly realised the music they were making was worthy of more than just a side-project tag. Soon Chris was introduced to the band, and thus Banfi was born.
Their first single 'Happy when you go' released on Communion Records (Mumford and Sons, Catfish and the Bottlemen) was described by Clash as 'playful lyricism with a bittersweet quality that belies their tender years.'
