The Scruff

The Allotment / Sunday

The Scruff headed into 2018 as ‘ones to watch’, following on from what feels like a break out few months for the Bedford natives. A somewhat turbulent start to last year saw a member emigrate, a rebuilding process and a new outlook on their sound as the band regrouped with new guitarist Jack, to release ‘Her’, an anthemic single inspired by the passing of drummer Omar’s mother.

The single was swiftly picked up by the Radio One team, who made it BBC Radio One Introducing Track Of The Week, as well as receiving support from Steve Lamacq at BBC 6Music and picking up This Feeling Radio X Track Of The Week too.

Following on from a relentless tour, which saw the band play 40 shows in 3 months, including a BBC Showcase for SJM and a Fightback show for Music Venues Trust, the band headed into the studio to produce their next single ‘White Flag’.
