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.

The songwriting power behind The Rileys' sound comes from Joe Fielder, 23, vocals, and Dave Giles, 23, guitar, who met at their induction day at Campion School, Hornchurch, in 1996 and have been writing music pretty much ever since.
Joe, from Hornchurch, and Dave, originally from Barking, moved to west London to form The Rileys after finishing university in the summer of 2007.
