Produced by the band’s drummer Dave Maclean, the six-track EP will be out on 12th October 18 through Because Music. Pre-order your copy here.
The band have also dropped the video for their first single "Swimming At Night".
“The Swimming at Night chorus is about closing your eyes or being in the dark and swimming in your own world, your own thoughts,” Maclean adds; "The idea for the video came when we were in Palm Springs. The light and the colours there were extraordinary and were the inspiration behind some of the imagery in the video. That, combined with an old drawing that Tommy found, of a colourful deep blue sea full of creatures. The video was animated by Gemma Yin Taylor who did an amazing job at bringing to life the visual I had in my head”.

The 12" single will be out tomorrow (September 24th) via Tough Love Records, and is a foretaste of a forthcoming album in January 2019. Buy your copy here.
"The Willo" is a dreamlike, seven-minute glide, redolent of a forest at sunset and just as pretty, but not without hints of malevolence. Maxim's fingerpicking acoustic melds with electric twang from Dominic, and a whirling organ from Max Oscarnold gives this elegant creation an extra layer of disorientation and depth. “People appear to have seen Will-o’-the-wisp, a mysterious green-blue light, over the centuries. It generally means something ominous is about to happen", says Tom Dougall.
Then there is "Energy", which lives up to its name with thunderously metronomic drums from Charlie Salvidge and a ferocious guitar from Dominic O’Dair. The lyrics, culled from a story written by Max about a nighttime ritual, are obscured by the barrage-like forward momentum of the music.
