Max, Jack, Henry and Ethan are four students that make up Bristol/Sheffield based Indie Rock band Exiled, the love child of a steamy one night stand between The Wombats & Catfish and The Bottlemen, with a guitar led sound made for good times, rough nights and growing up.
Debut single ‘Remind Me’ was all about strobe lit uni life with infectious, unassuming charm. Along with the follow up singles Block 2, Oh My and Luna it prompted BBC Introducing Sheffield’s Christian Carlisle to describe Exiled as “perfectly executed indie pop” with arena filling tunes.
With roots in Sheffield, Bristol and Birmingham, the boys’ collective love for indie pop and surf rock lay the foundations for the band’s sound; a nod towards Circa Waves, with a hint of Hockey Dad and a suggestion of The Night Cafe.
Exiled are headed by energetic front man and rhythm guitarist Max Clutterbuck, whose relatable lyrics find the perfect companion in lead guitarist Jack Berry’s dynamic and atmospheric riffs. The rhythm section of the band is comprised of bassist Henry Robinson and drummer Ethan Reeves, lifelong friends whose melodic bass-lines and hard-hitting beats seamlessly intertwine to provide the ideal backdrop for the band’s sound.
Praised by BBC Introducing for writing relatable songs strewn with catchy hooks and ear worm riffs, 2018 saw the band release three brand new singles; one of which being billed as one of BBC Introducing in Sheffield’s favourite tracks of the year.
