Better late than never . . .

A belated happy new year to all of you!

We have been quiet of late. Our violin player is currently gallivanting through the Balkans with his band Folk Combo in search of inspiration and folk music. They are keeping a blog of their adventures, which you can follow here. We expect him to return in the Spring, fully inspired, to help us finish the new songs we have been working on in his absence.

In the meantime, here is a live video of our last show (which feels like ages ago), back in Utrecht in September. Rest assured, new shows are in the planning for later on this year.

New live video for “Curious”

Since our English tour we have been busy putting the finishing touches to a couple of new songs, two of which we debuted in June at Raspberry Sessions in Utrecht. Part of this show was filmed and we are pleased to be able to share a video for the song “Curious”:

Furthermore, we have a few shows planned in the coming months, including a weekend in September with In Orbit from Nijmegen:

10/08 – Lazy Sunday Afternoon, Utrecht
05/09 – House show, Nijmegen
06/09 – House show, Arnhem
07/09 – Café Averechts, Utrecht (Culturele Zondag)

Enjoy the Summer,
Pete, Matt, David & Leon

E.P. now online

In November we spent two days in Rotterdam with Floyd Atema recording our first E.P. With plans for a full-length in the works, we wanted to lay-down a couple of songs to celebrate what had been our first year as a band. This mini-E.P. is now free to listen to and you can download it here:
