about

Our self-titled debut EP began in our living room as a handful of simple folk songs, which then developed over a series of bedroom rehearsals in late 2012. The completed songs were recorded over four separate days in February 2013 at a friend's home studio, named the 'Record Room' after the hundreds of CDs, tapes and vinyls lining the walls.

"...more hook-heavy giants than a fair few debut full-lengths..."
This Is Fake DIY

"...a knack for song-craft..."

Track Name: Sinking Ship
Sat in the light of burning wood
Ready to do anything you could
Old man stares you up and down
Enter the private room alone
Close the iron door you'll be unknown
Here in the service of the king

Cause you're standing by my sinking ship
Watching me as the tide appears
Sinking further in
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh

No-one ever tried to turn you down
Mouth will move, no sound come out
Heart is sinking to the floor
Make your move to the other side
Path is looking clear in the hazy light
Feet move softly on the floor
Track Name: Fine
I don't know how to look straight
Could this be my mistake
My time's gone fast for two years now
My watch face is clouding out

So you might be fine on your own
You might be fine without us all
You might be fine on your own
Cause home is where you'll go

Hanging over our heads too long
Wasting time goes on and on
Just desire will never do
Only good when it's good for you
Track Name: Washout
Saw her in the headlights
Been running around all night
Black rain on the windscreen
Dark angels wear suncream

And I feel it
But only when it burns at night time
It gets too dark
And I feel it
But only when it burns at night time
It gets too dark for her

Young boy gets gold stars
Uniform so he feels part
Try harder for next year
Ambition can disappear

You have to find the perfect life
You have to find a place to hide
Track Name: A Thousand Minds
Stop the rain stop the rain stop the rain
It gets under my feet
You make you make it feel complete again

What you say what you say what you say
I could never believe
You make you make it feel complete again

It's coming stronger this time
River walls fly open again
Phoney love you're offering

My friends were on the other side
Take some time make your mind
A thousand minds can disagree
Never seemed quite right for me
