Conor is also frontman of rock n roll band Rainbow Maniac, who arrived into the Cardiff scene circa 2017 with tremendous vigor. They emerged stocked full of tunes, and an evident, urgent will to make noise.

While Latcham’s swagger and self-confidence draw comparisons to the Gallaghers; the essence of his music lies far from the benign imagery of Oasis-lite word-bastardisation and far more in the unlikely everyman stories of Pulp and Jarvis Cocker. Bittersweet and self-aware with a bulletproof façade, masking the emblematic doubts and anxieties of anyone growing up in a world of TV licenses, zero hour contracts, WIFI charges and Netflix addiction.
