MATCHING HEARTS/SIMILAR PARTS EP + FREE TRACK + UNDERAGE FEST COMP


Hello world,
So for the last couple of months we’ve been recording our next EP – Matching Hearts/Similar Parts. We recorded two new tracks - ‘I Don’t Not Love You’, which will be the lead track off the EP and for which we have done a video – which is up on our myspace NOW – let us know your thoughts, we had to spend a whole day…yeh WHOLE day in Walthamstow getting slapped around by a rather beautiful Latino honey…oh what a world. We’re really happy with it, Sam Crack and Marcus Sharp shot and directed it – they are extremely lovely and talented and will go on to the rule TV no doubts…

The other track is ‘Racing Race’, which is more of an epic number – in at just under 7 minutes! We chose to record this track as a kind of window to a different side to us that most wont really know yet…being that we are such a giving band we’ve decided to give this out for free…Just send us your email on the front page and we’ll drop it off in your inbox…NICE

The other tracks we recorded, well re-recorded are ‘Bells At Midnight’ and ‘St.George’ - now the last time we re-recorded a track..ahem..Locarno..there was a mixed reaction. Fair nuff! Well we’ve done it again to test our faithful followers. We felt the need to do this to make sure the EP had flow and also to show how we’re moving on as a band – we want to update our tracks accordingly. We also wanted to draw a line under all our old demos and move on – we’ve written loads more tracks and now want to get on with recording them….Done. EP out 13th July…cop that on vinyl and download – download will come with a remix from the mighty Lagos Boys Choir (sounding sickkk!) and the video. Alotta bang for your buck..

Also – we’re playing Underage festival, we’re running a competition with them to give away 2 pairs of tickets. By leaving us your email you’ll be entered into the comp, and we’ll announce the winner beginning of July.
