Today is the day! You can now go get a copy of ‘Alleyways’ for your very own!
‘Alleyways’ is now available for download on iTunes or you can buy one of the limited edition cassettes from the Kissability store!
Here’s some of the lovely things people have been saying about it already:
“A bittersweet paean to reverb and teenage summers that manages to sound, above all, thoroughly current.” -the 405
“Jennie Morris’s honeyed, alluring vocals are undoubtedly the star here. They forge a path through rich and melodic guitar lines that drift by and create a wistful and romanticised sense of yearning that never really comes to the forefront, but instead bubbles just under the surface.” - GoldFlakePaint
“Welsh purveyors of perfect indie pop” - Ruth Barnes, Amazing Radio
“Well, y’know, it doesn’t really get much better than that. that was absolutely gorgeous” - Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales
We’ve also been named Artist of the Week on Amazing Radio by Bethan Elfyn. You can listen to an interview Jennie did for them here
You can also watch the official music video here!
Have a great day!

Recently, we headed down to Silver Street Studios in Reading for the day to shoot some live studio videos for you, that’s right, you, cos we’re nice like that ;)
Thanks to the help of our manager Rob Bloomfield and his band of merry men we were able to create these live studio videos of ‘Little Games’, ‘Alleyways’ and ‘Park The Car’.
We’ve been giving them to you one by one over the last few weeks as little surprises and we’ve loved your response to them so far
Here they are as a playlist which you can share to all your friends and whatnot. Along with some pictures we took while making them for you to look upon with amazement.
We’ve been included in the “Tip Tape” for 2013 by God Is In The TV.
They had this to say about us :)
Their only recorded release to date ‘ Little Games’ hints at their commercial potential a gorgeously bittersweet pop song with Jennie’s dulcet vocals offering a strident edge to their alt-pop sound that’s the interesting meeting place between the most commercial cuts of Throwing Muses and the cinematic pop of early Texas. Their live shows hint at an even more dynamic widescreen rock sound to come hinting at the likes of the Pixies and North Walians The Joy Formidable.
Take a look at the full article here.

‘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 it.
