But disaster struck when their entire debut album went missing, as their laptop disappeared somewhere between a Bulgarian music festival and the airport. "I’ve got to admit, on that flight back I thought Bondax was over. I thought we’d fucked it," the band told DIY magazine last year.
Instead, Lancashire-born Adam Kaye and George Townsend dusted themselves off, played a few festivals, and released a stopgap album - Bondax and Friends - combining new material, collaborations and remixes. Then they started making an even better debut, which is due out next year.
The first single premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show last night. It's called Temptation, it features Swedish hit-maker Erik Hassle, and it is an archetypal mid-tempo banger.
