We are doing Movember!

Thankfully Kieran is doing ok now but it hit home with us and so we’ve decided to do Movember. Admittedly...

'Little Games' reviewed by Magic Chords
‘Little Games’ has been reviewed by the American music blog Magic Chords Here’s a nice little quote from it :) It has almost a “Treefingers” style to it, with lead guitar playing soft little melodies and the rhythm guitar almost just creating ambiance in the background. It makes everything feel airy and kinda spacey, but still has that Best Coast, surf-and-sunshine feel to...

‘Little Games’ has been reviewed by Australian music blog We Talk, You Die. Look at the lovely things they say about us! The track is a bittersweet coming of age tale, recounted with a spirited frankness that epitimises the Welsh quartet’s sound. Where the tom-boyish vocals of lead singer, Jen, soar aloft over warped pop choruses that recall The Pains of Being Pure At Heart fused...
