The Sunday Times has described them as “wonderful”; the Telegraph named them one of its ‘favourite new bands”; Radio 2 called them “a band to watch” and veteran DJ Johnnie Walker praises their gigs as “just a really good, fun time”.
Their literate and superbly crafted songs veer from the wistful and poetic to flat-out, foot-stomping tales of doomed barbecues, French mustard and falling in love on a Tennessee highway.
Founded in 2009 in, if they're honest, a bit of a bucket list moment, over the last year the band have suddenly found themselves very popular indeed - which is no surprise as they are VERY good at what they do (incidentally, they are also VERY good at what they do when they're not playing in the band as the members include a Guardian columnist, a barrister and the MD of a highly successful advertising company!) PDH is now gigging in earnest, and finding themselves sold out at shows across the south. Buoyed by a rapturous reception at festivals last summer, with appearances at Cornbury, Camp Bestival, Larmer Tree and Kendal Calling, among others, this year sees them on a full festival schedule through the summer and then a UK tour to promote a brand new album being released this autumn.
