‘The set blew me away; the catchy tunes, the front man's dry humour and the atmosphere they created, meant that even now many of their songs are still stuck in my head. A real stellar performance.’ Leeds Music Scene
“Their music sounds beautifully melodic with intricate arrangement of guitars and vocals”- Beat2achord
Combining the old style songwriting honed by the writers of the 60s with the aggressively happy sound which they have created. If Paul Simon and Sex Bob-omb had a baby, this would be it. Arthur is the backside of the mind of a Happy go lucky scamp. Always on the road, always going somewhere else, and the Antidotes are what keep him going.
Their fast rolling popularity has led to many key shows, extensive media coverage and a live session for the BBC.
Their origins include a vast array of trials and influences, which contribute to their unique and original sound, with like-minded, and talented musicians, they use each member's proficiency to bring together a sound which is not only memorable, but significant.
Influences include Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage against the Machine and Kings of Leon to name a few. As well as Funk, Blues, and Rock, which all contribute to their sound.
They released their Debut EP titled ‘SHOWA’ In February , in honour of the band’s name. ‘Showa’ being the first Godzilla era in Japan.
“‘Killer’ is an excellent track by a very promising group. I absolutely love their sound and the classic influence they’ve sprinkled throughout a contemporary offering.”
They’re not sure if anyone has repeated the secret chord that David played to please the Lord, but Fenton damn sure have tried!
This indie three-piece have put together a set containing future classics, brimming overdrive, pounding drums, incredible bass lines and magnificent overblown guitar solos.
They're a melting pot for the individual members’ eclectic musical tastes. It turns out that a penchant for Pantera + Interpol + Manics = something that sounds a bit like Bloc Party.

Their new single 'Killer' is due for release in April.
Jesus Christ, Fenton!
