There is a calmness in its melancholy, a beauty in its blues. These are songs that see the mystical beyond the material, abstracted folk ballads awash in memory - **** MOJO

"fuses the nostalgia of classic folk with sweet and sunny pop melodies all imbued with a sense of narrative and history" - Wake the Deaf

"so elegant I feel I should be better dressed in its presence" - Scots Whay Hae

"the quartet present a rich tapestry of antiquated craft across their beautiful new album" - Gold Flake Paint

I should pay more attention to the forum.

I had to have a person IN THE REAL WORLD tell me about this last evening.

I believe (hope) they are supporting KC when he plays Birmingham Town Hall next year.
