THE ESTATES + YOUNG BRAVES + THE CHASE + SHEMP + THE NEW CONSISTENT
The Estates gained popularity from the EP ‘Extended Play’, along with then seeing their song Lately become the BBC Introducing song of the week which really gained them traction on the local Midlands scene, before even playing a show. Rarely does a band gain popularity before playing any live shows but the lads have backed up the blind faith with their performances so far. The band are now in the process of writing and recording new material which will see its release in 2019.

The Nottingham based four piece began life as a trio at an extremely young age! Brothers Tyler (Lead singer and Guitarist) and Dion Heaney (Drummer) were joined by their cousin Luke Childs (Bassist) at the mere ages of 10, 8 and 12. Expanding their sound, Tyler and Dion introduced their school mate, James Cahill (Keyboardist), into The Chase unit providing a more distinct sound to the group. Inspired by their council estate roots, The Chase branded themselves after the very streets they were raised, taking influence from their local precinct named The Robin Hood Chase.
