Gethin also produced the 2015 debut album ‘Arnos Vale’ from Personal Best, which was hailed by Noisey as “the best band I’ve heard in [a long] time…ripping power-pop that will propel you heart-first into a good time. Between the college rock melodies and the cathartic lyrics, listening to the record is like performing a cleansing ritual that rids you of all negative vibes.”
Throughout 2015, Gethin worked with some of the most exciting up and coming bands including Haus, Radio On and Clay, getting great reviews and sitting comfortably on Radio 1 and XFM playlists across the board
