I’ve been a fan of Cohesion since I first saw them in 2012, which feels like forever ago now. I could easily write an essay on how great they are, but I’ll try and keep this short and sweet…

Hailing from Sunderland, the indie-rock five piece have taken the UK by storm these past few years with their live shows and anthemic tunes. The band ooze passion and energy, making their gigs a real enjoyable experience. With their bold melodies and sing-along choruses, you can’t help but be drawn in!

I’ve been lucky enough to work with Cohesion many times over the years from interviewing them on radio, to putting them on at my own Lone Wolf events. I don’t think I’ve ever met a more hard working band! Their DIY ethos is admirable, and it’s always great to see their hard work pay off.

2017 sees the band return after a hiatus and they’ve come back with a vengeance, releasing their brand new four track EP ‘Pleasures of the Earth’. Recorded and produced by long term friend of the band, Anthony Edward Snowdon, it’s full of infectious hooks and superb harmonies, and certainly shows how much the band have grown since their first release.

They’ve always been one of those bands I listen to whilst dancing around my room using a hairbrush as a microphone. Their music has a real feel-good vibe to it, and never fails to put a smile on my face.

You can next catch the band live at Jumpin’ Jacks (Newcastle) on the 15th April, and I’ll see you down the front! They’ll also be making an appearance at Simon Says Festival (Leicester) in July!
