Himalayas are an Indie / Garage band from Cardiff comprising Joe Williams (rhythm guitar and vocals), Mike Griffiths (lead guitar and vocals), Louis Heaps (Bass) and James Goulbourn (drums).
The band started in mid 2015 and in December 2015, having cemented their reputation on the South Wales Music scene embarked on a six-date UK tour comprising Cardiff, Bristol, London, Brighton, Manchester and Liverpool.
Sonically the band offer seductive guitar lines and hip bass parts that will groove you to the core, all driven by an avalanche of drums. The songs are fresh with a dark undercurrent and the overall sound is slick and melodic with lyrics that defy the age of the songwritters.
Performance wise, Himalayas put on an energetic, jaw dropping show. Their rapport and banter with their audience will make you feel like you've known them for years and you are guaranteed to go away huming their tunes and wanting more.

We guarantee you that the catchy hooks throughout 'Cheap Thrills' will linger in your head for days. Overall, it's already a stand out track of the year for us".
