Acclaimed west-coast guitar band with exhilarating female vocals often dubbed as Liverpool’s only true psychedelic band. The Poppies have subsumed the influences of the great and given birth to music which is provocative, invigorating and wholly their own.

It is a quest which serves them spectacularly well in artistic terms.
