SINCE winning the Xfm Uploaded single of the week with Jimmy Is A Lunatic in April 2008, things have been going very well for indie rock band The Rileys.
Their live performances around the south east of England, led to a sell-out headline gig at Bush Hall at the end of August.
Their debut self-titled EP sold well and their first single, Baby Blue, released in June, was played on local radio stations up and down the country.
The follow-up, Do You Feel Me, is released this month with a launch gig at the prestigious Carling Islington Academy on Wednesday, followed by a UK tour.

Joe, from Hornchurch, and Dave, originally from Barking, moved to west London to form The Rileys after finishing university in the summer of 2007.
