The Tates



Full ImageWater is the brand new single by Welsh indie pop 5-piece The Tates and it's been eagerly awaited after the success of their debut release Electric Girl which we played on Ralph's Radio KC Indie Show. It was also supported by Huw Stephens, BBC Intro, Radio 1, playlisted on Amazing Radio and A-listed by BBC Radio Wales.

Ralph will be playing Water on the Radio KC Indie Show next Sunday (26.11.17) so remember to tune in from 5-7pm GMT.

Energised by their summer tour in support of Electric Girl plus feeling confident and inspired they returned to the studio in Cardiff to work with producer Steffan Pringle (Estrons, Himalays and Future Of The Left).
