“SUDS are something special” - Hayley Ritchie, BBC Introducing
In the cold beginning of 2018 three gals, one lad, and various instruments came together to create SUDS. Dan the dog-walker-by-day, guitarist by night made the bold move to Peterborough to join the rest of the clan. Living together boosted work morale and helped define SUDS’ identity. Dan’s energetic nature is amplified on the strings, bringing atmospheric riffs and driving choruses that contrast and compliment Maisie-Mae’s soft voice. Made from hand crafted moody words and gentle vocal lines, they are accompanied by Maisie-Mae’s catchy guitar licks. Isabella, who’s day job is a piano tutor, puts aside the keys and picks up the sticks for this project. Her innovative drumming and infectious aura turns SUDS’ indie skeleton into something boppier and more lively. Pro Popcorn Popper, Tom leaves the grueling work of the cinema behind him and plays the bass. With strong and independently creative bass lines, his animated appealing rhythm is not hard to miss- nor is his newly shaved head!
As their first single, Evergreen began to develop- oozing with echoes of breezy guitar riffs and rigid wordy melodies, it was clear to see that Maisie-Mae, Dan, Tom and Isabella had a unique friendship and journey ahead of them.
