ANTEROS are a London indie pop four-piece fronted by Laura Hayden, drawing influence from the likes of Blondie, old school No Doubt, The Cure, The Cardigans and Blur. They play Tyneside later this month.

Having released their first single as a fully formed band only six months ago, Anteros have quickly established a fervent fan base of music lovers and critics alike and achieved unheralded success, being chosen as one of Annie Mac’s New Names for 2016 and achieving a #3 on Hype Machine with single ‘Breakfast’. The band were invited to open the prestigious Other Stage at Glastonbury this summer, with other notable festival appearances including Reading and Leeds and Secret Garden Party, alongside a sold out first headline show at London’s Waiting Room in late September

The band released their second EP ‘Breakfast’ in September (on Jen Long’s Kissability label). The EP documents the band’s journey from their first ever writing session, which birthed the undeniably anthemic ‘Anteros’, an ode to London life and the song that gave them their name. ‘Anteros’ glides seamlessly into the nostalgia-laden ‘Fade To Grey’, described as ‘light-hearted and gorgeous’ by The 405, followed by the career-defining ‘Breakfast’ and infectious new track ‘Ring Ring’, embodying the tremendous growth the band have experienced in such a short space of time.

Anteros, Jumpin’ Jacks, Newcastle, Friday, September 29. Tickets at
