Fresh is a British pop punk band formed in London in 2015 by Kathryn Woods (vocals/guitar), with George Phillips (bass) and Daniel Goldberg (drums) joining in 2016.[3][4][2] The current lineup is completed by Myles McCabe (guitar), who joined in 2017.

History[edit]

Fresh was started in London in 2015 by songwriter Kathryn Woods (vocals/guitar). George Phillips (bass) and Daniel Goldberg (drums) joined the live band in 2016, and would go on to play on its debut album.[4][2][3] The current lineup is completed by Myles McCabe (guitar), who joined in 2017.

After self-releasing two EPs in 2015 the band signed to Specialist Subject Records and released their self-titled debut album on 18 August 2017.[1][5][4][3] The album was recorded at The Ranch in Southampton.[5]

In July 2017 they were featured in Kerrang! who compared them to Modern Baseball, Joyce Manor, and Diet Cig. The article quotes Kathryn as saying, "Fresh started because I was a teenage girl who was bored of only seeing men playing in bands".[1]

In December 2017 ABC News listed their debut album as one of their 50 best albums of that year.[6]
