A Suffolk band has gained national exposure for their new single after it was played on ITV show This Morning.

Indie/rock band City Glow, which formed in May last year, is headed by Nik Lowe, from Bury St Edmunds.

The band’s single ‘Crave’ was chosen for the background music to a fashion shoot on the popular daytime TV show and they got a mention from co-host Holly Willoughby.

Nik, who is currently unable to perform due to swollen vocal chords, said: “It’s amazing. I was quite chuffed with that. It gave me a boost really.”

He performs in the band - which is signed to MHM Records - alongside Alwyn Hornsey, Harvey Baldwin and Kieran Hoggett.
