New EP, The Valley, due for release Feb 2018

We will be launching a new 3 track EP, entitled ‘The Valley’, in mid February 2018. Simon, Brione and I travelled up to Manchester in November and December last year to record the tracks with producer, Nigel Stonier, and engineer, Séadna McPhail.

We will be filming a video to accompany the first single of the EP, with Josh Paine-Lewis, in a few week’s time.
