plus: PARK BENCH SOCIETY
Park Bench Society are four 17 year old lads from Loughborough who specialise in charming acoustic indie music full of ear-catching percussion.
Room No. 66 was first played by Dean Jackson on his BBC Introducing show The Beat in September 2011 and the band were quickly ordered in for a session.
Their singles have been shown some love by Tom Robinson, Steve Lamacq and Huw Stephens on Radio 1 and the band played Reading and Leeds Festivals, among others, in 2012.
