Upcoming Events



Batten down the hatches

Date Posted: 2014/07/08

Hello you. Do people still check bands' websites for news? Obviously you do, so this is just for you. All has been reasonably quiet since our last UK & Ireland tour in April and for good reason. Our main focus has been to steep ourselves in writing and recording, work out where we're headed musically, and hone in the new tunes. We'll keep y'all posted on any goings on, shows we have coming up, etc, and also of our recording progress. All in all we're keeping it all reasonably mysterious, like a lego toy with no instructions. Much love to one and all. Jp. x

Ones to Watch 2014 / Best Live Act 2013 / Other Voices

Date Posted: 2014/01/28

Just a quick thank you to Whelan's for nominating us as Ones to Watch in 2014, we had a blast playing the festival and meeting a bunch of new people too. Thanks to Dave & Bernie for the goodie bags too, they were delicious. Another thank you to Chordblossom for nominating us as Best NI Live Act of 2013, we're immensely proud to be in the company of the likes of ASIWYFA and Little Bear, we're now buckling down on making the show even bigger and better in 2014. Lastly, we've been invited to play the Other Voices music trail in Derry on Fri 7th February. It's a free show, we're on at 10:30pm in Tinney's on Patrick Street. Some other nice stuff in the pipeline for 2014 too, which we'll hopefully have news for you soon on.
