The Welsh Four Piece The Riff Gives Us Some Straight Down The Line Indie/Rock!

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Formed when they were all just 15, The Riff are a 4 piece Indie band from Swansea, Wales. The line up includes Chris Betts (bass),Tommy Evans (drums), joined by twin brothers Sam Curtis ( keys) and Ben Curtis (lead vox/guitar), the lads worked tirelessly to carve themselves out a sound which takes influences from iconic bands like The Who and The Stone Roses.

In addition to headlining a wealth of their own shows, The Riff have quickly got to work supporting a variety of established acts such as Bruce Foxton (The Jam), Tom Hingley (Inspiral Carpets), Barry Sutton (The La's) as well as sharing the stage with The Sherlocks.

May 2016 saw the band release debut single 'Jezebel' earning them 'BBC Wales Introducing Artist of the Week.' second single 'Show Me' was released in May 2017, closely followed by the hard hitting 'Weekend Schemes' in July 2017.

The Riff are now back with a fourth single, ' Nothing Lasts Forever', the song depicts that moment of realisation that things don't always go to plan and nothing is eternal.

The Welsh 4 piece will now aim to build on their already impressive start after being hyped as one of Wales' most exciting unsigned Indie/Rock bands.
