Malts

Genre: Indie / Funk / Folk / Pop
Band Members: Jake, Dan, Swap, Mark and Jo
Home Town: Bristol

About: Malts were founded on a series of well-drafted ads, built with the appreciation of squeezing an upright bass into a tiny car, and established in a pub during an extensive band name brainstorming session. Yes, it came from a beer bottle.

The five-piece hail from across England, although the East Midlands are disproportionately represented. None are from Bristol but all now call the home of tarmac, blackcurrant-flavoured drinks, and supersonic aeroplanes their own.
