A Swansea University band is receiving recognition after winning the JD Roots Music Competition at Sin City.
Two Tides, a folk influenced band, is made up of four Swansea students and graduates, Nick and Mattie Skelton, Sam Jarman and Alex McKenzie.
They competed against Swansea bands, Beautiful Strangers and Soap to win a chance to support a UK top act in the students’ union, be part of the Strongroom sessions in Shoreditch and a demo recording session with previous AC/DC and Cheap Trick producer, Tony Platt.
Drummer, Alex, said: “We were ecstatic that we won battle of the bands, especially because we got 60% of the public vote.
“We’re all grateful to everyone who voted for us, especially as we were up against some great bands. As a prize we also get studio time and a gig in Sin City, so those will be huge moments for us!”
