The Tates were spawned in the twisted and insidious beauty of West Wales, consisting of Liam Fusco, Tom Ryan, Matt Kilgariff, Jac Robin and Shaun Gwizdak. Influences range from The Libertines’ poetic raw energy to the death disco of early New Order and the euphoric punch of Depeche Mode.
The band’s first single ‘Electric Girl’ showcased a new and vibrant day-glow sound that was head over heals in love with the endless possibilities of the 3 minute pop song. With the support of plays on BBC Radio 1 and play listings on Amazing Radio and BBC Radio Wales, The Tates embarked on a successful tour of the summer of 2017. With new fresh material on its way be prepared to be enthralled by the Tates’ joyous sound.
