Hello! Sorry for neglecting these posts in recent times. We’ve actually been in the studio during the summer, recording another album at Soup Studios. We’re working in bits and pieces, as is our way. We stop and think about things, then try something different, then keep working, then stop and think about things a little again. It’s going incredibly well. At the moment we are thinking of calling this album We Come from the Same Place. It seems to encapsulate everything that’s been going on around these parts for the last 8 months or so. Anyway! It will be a long time until it comes out, as seems to be the way. But we have learned to be patient with these things.
Tomorrow we are heading to the End of the Road festival. We think that we might be playing to our biggest audience ever, which is exciting/terrifying. We are working out the setlist this afternoon, and doing some last minute rehearsal. We can’t wait, really.
On Tuesday Elizabeth recorded four songs with Darren Hayman at his home, and she has posted the songs up on bandcamp. The EP is called Optimism, and features songs written on piano and guitar, and was recorded completely live. You can listen and download the EP here.
We have also got some new shows coming up in the UK in October. We will be stopping in Leeds, Manchester and London. The details are all over on our shows page. We are doing another Marc Riley session around that time too.
Enjoy the rest of your summer.
