about

This is our fourth album and is the product of us writing on the road. As a result there are lots of different inspirations from different places and people that feature in the lyrics and the music. We were really very fortunate to be able to include some of our favourite musicians on the album which we think gives it that extra little glow.

Hope you like it and get something from it.
