After the release of their first demo I’d Let You Win, the band received critical acclaim including Flavour of the Month and Ones to Watch from BBC Introducing which resulted in extensive airplay from BBC Radio 1, RTE and countless others.

PORTS rose to prominence in Ireland after their performance at Other Voices, Derry-Londonderry (when they stepped in to replace Two Door Cinema Club).
