We are home from our European tour. It's been a brilliant few weeks. A huge thank you to everyone who came down to the shows - from Dublin to Zurich, every night had something special about it. We played our second sold out London show in a row and the final night in the packed out Rotonde in Brussels was a really beautiful way to end this tour.

The BBC Quay Sessions with Edith Bowman

You can watch some of our recent session filmed for BBC where we played some songs and chatted to Edith Bowman. We were also asked to perform a cover of a song by a Scottish band/artist for this. Hopefully we did it justice! If you missed it, check it out here on iPlayer.

This week we popped in to BBC 6 Music to chat to Lauren Laverne and play a live, stripped back session. You can listen on iPlayer (although I'm told that they cut out Ol's ace Matt Berninger impression, hard lines).

More shows in Ireland, Northern Ireland and mainland Europe just announced. 

21st October 2015

You didn’t really think we’d miss out our hometown did you? Of course not. We just wanted to make this one extra special so it took a bit more planning..

So, we are pleased to announce a one off special hometown gig where we’ll be accompanied by none other than Royal Northern Sinfonia at Sage, Gateshead. For this unique event we will scale down Sage One into an atmospheric, intimate space and be joined by the 39 piece orchestra to play our songs; old and new . It’s been a spine-tingly experience working with these guys and we are certain that it’s going to be a pretty magic evening.

Saturday 6th February. Tickets £15.

In other news.. As FAULTLINES hits its 5th week on the BBC6 Music playlist, we are thrilled to share this videomoviefilm for the song, as premiered over on CLASH. Written and directed by our buddies at HandHeldCineClub, this is stunning and dark up until the very last moment. Enjoy..

24th August 2015.

Well, hello there. It's been a while. We have a bit of news for you - a few things actually..

Firstly, we are thrilled to be able to announce today that our new album BEINGS will be released on 13th November 2015. If you'd like to read a bit more about the record you can do so HERE.

The first single to be taken from the record is FAULTLINES and here it is, for your listening pleasure. (The lyrics are also available to read HERE)

Furthermore, to coincide with the release we'll be playing some shows.  Tickets on sale from today.

I think that'll do for now on the news-front.



11th July 2015.

As huge fans of Radiohead it was a real honour to be asked to remix a track for Philip Selway. ’Don’t Go Now’ is taken from Philip’s fantastic Weatherhouse album.
