Band on the Month July 2012 - SPLASHH

Splashh is a London four piece comprised by Toto Vivian, Sasha Carlson, Thomas Beal and Jacob More. 

The band began life as the brainchild of Toto and Sasha forming in late February 2012. 

The duo initially bonded over their mutual music tastes and then began plotting their sun drenched musical assault on the UK. Growing up between the South Pacific and the UK they left the beaches behind to record in a small bedroom in Hackney. 

The result was a myriad of floating, fuzz laden grunge pop tunes with a punk twist. With a number of songs in the can the boys then recruited close friends Thomas Beal on bass and Jacob Moore on drums.

They released their debut single 'All I Wanna Do' on cassette through Jen Long's Kissability label on June 6, and are set to follow it up with brand new track 'Need It'.

'Need It' will be released digitally and on 7" vinyl through Luv Luv Luv Records on July 30th.
