Pete & the Pirates

Bright, young commanders of a brand of unique Englishness, Pete and The Pirates' blend of smooth edged punk and pop produces music which is sweet, raw, joyous, melancholic, raucous and tender. The Pirates' idiosyncratic and endearing songwriting puts them somewhere between the Flying Nun band Tall Dwarfs and the wistful reflection of On The Beach-era Neil Young. Pete and The Pirates is the side-project of frontman Thomas sanders, who is also in Tap Tap.
