“Woozily narcotic of tempo and bathed in reverb, minor chord-heavy songs…glide by in a melancholy swoon....there's a bewitching aura of moonlight dappled languor.” Mojo (****)
“Packed with atmospheric, gentle psychedelic folk…this is a delicate and sublime mix of swooning melodies and haunting, intelligent arrangements.” Shindig! (****)
“It’s dark yet playful; 'quintessentially English' yet worldly and well- travelled as if part acid folk with hints of portentous balladry and filmic imagery as viewed through a gypsy campfire and all thoroughly delightful.” Terrascope (album of the month)
Following “The Romance in Disappearing“–the lead single from their forthcoming EP, Young Professional.
“Legs For Days” is a beautiful folk-rock cut that builds in multiple parts over the course of four and a half minutes–each a fuller, more engrossing arrangement of textures and instrumentation than the last.
In regards to the impetus for the song’s creation, frontman Ian McGuinness tells us, “‘Legs for Days’ was a way for me to cope through a hard break-up. Lyrically, it takes you through the painful, hazy steps of separation and ends with a moment of clarity and a glimpse of hope. Sonically, the song was our first foray into a larger wall of sound, incorporating a string quartet, multiple trumpets and two drummers.” UTG
For the past 5 years, we've had the opportunity to record and release some really special records and now we want to take some time to celebrate and dream about whats next.
THE SONGS ARE ALL WE HAVE is a 20-song compilation of demos, live recordings, remixes, and b-sides. In addition to the digital album, we've also made stickers, buttons, a limited edition poster, and slipmats! The funds raised through these various packages will help us do more. More records, more shows, more songs.
Our fans, friends, and family have been the reason we've been able to do what we do.
We're going to keep going, keep recording great songs, and keep releasing great records. Please consider supporting us.
