“Backspace are ending 2018 in the way they began it; style and sass in spades and not afraid to carve their own niche in the local music scene. It can only only get better in 2019 for this band.”Halfway to Nowhere

“Now to a band I have been itching to tell people about. Leeds-based teenage alt pop quintet Backspace. These kids are so young and yet already making serious waves and winning the respect and support of fellow bands and fans across the North of England. The fact that they are being judged against the same high standards as musicians twice or three times their age underlines the extent to which time and talent are on their side. Hopefully they will fly. If they don’t it will be the music industry’s and our loss.”(Neil March) Trust The Doc
