They released the ‘Head of Steam’ EP, which charted at 17 on the Radio 1 Indie Chart followed by their critically acclaimed album. Featured in ‘The Word’ Magazine’s Best New Music, they have also been championed by Bob Harris & Terry Wogan on Radio 2, Tom Robinson on Radio 6 as well as live sessions with Cerys Matthews and ‘Loose Ends’ on Radio 4. The album attracted critical acclaim from The Sunday Times and The Daily Mirror. The last few years have seen major festival appearances including Glastonbury, The Secret Garden Party, Wilderness and Cambridge Folk and a Support slot with The Fun loving Criminals.
After a well received headline tour of Ireland the band were back on the road shortly after with a new album ‘Money Tree’ winning great press support inc cover-disc features on UNCUT and R2. This saw the band embark on their longest tour to date including an extensive headline tour of Germany.
The band have been working on their 3rd album to be released later this year. Their reputation as a formidable force on the stage has spread far and wide!
“From hot rocking thrills, to jazzy splendour to country darkness, the musical brief of Polly and the Billets Doux seems to be, if it sounds and feels good, go for it!”
