When James Veck-Gilodi talks of his time in Deaf Havana, it's easy to forget that he is just 23. His band has sold out Shepherds Bush Empire and played to huge crowds at Sonisphere, Slam Dunk and Reading and Leeds – at Reading last year, they pulled the largest crowd in the festival's history for an opening act on the main stage. In June, they will support Bruce Springsteen at London's Olympic Park.

Along the way, Deaf Havana has grown from a school band formed purely for fun to leading lights of the UK's rock underground to a sextet with their eyes fixed firmly on the charts. Out September 16th, the band's second major release, 'Old Souls', is packed with songs that are as pop as they are rock. Strings soar on almost every song, electric guitars are joined by lap steel, mandolin and banjo and there's even a gospel singer.

Deaf Havana, however, haven't gone soft. As the band has got bigger (both commercially speaking and size-wise – two new members have joined in the past year), so has their sound. 'Old Souls' lead single, 'Boston Square', which impacts July 1st, explodes from the speakers with pounding drums and a riff that tips its hat to The Who. By the time the gritty vocal kicks in, you're there with a sea of bouncing bodies and air-punching fists.
