Happy New Year!
We’re looking forward to a busy 2018… so we’re hitting the ground running with our brand new video for In Darkness We Feel Our Way!
Shot by Crooked Gentlemen films and featuring Jay Asolo (and Ro), it’s a treat for fans of Sunrises and Beaches! It’s also here on Spotify: Spotify link
In gig news, we’re proud to have been asked to curate a night at First Fortnight (Irelands Mental Health awareness festival) this Friday 12th. It’s on in the Workmans’ Club Dublin and features Bleeding Heart Pigeons, Farah Elle, and Pillow Queens, along with poetry from Tony Walsh, and Raneem, and opens with an acoustic set from us.
First Fortnight is all about challenging mental health stigma through creative arts, and our night is called “Therapy sessions“, so it’s pretty apt. Being in a band is sometimes a strain and test of your mental faculties, and from our perspective, anxiety and depression are widespread in our social circles and the creative arts. We have to challenge and change the stigma associated with all mental health issues, and the First Fortnight event is a festival that we are strongly behind!

The main recent buzz was playing Whelans, Dublin on New Year’s Eve, and that was a pretty great way to start the year – If you were there, thanks for sharing it with us, and if you weren’t, well, we’ll see you soon.
2018 is kinda our 11th year since our first album (hard to exactly count) and there’s a hell of a lot to happen during it… both personally and musically – we’re looking forward to sharing it with you! As ever, thank you for your support and we’ll see you soon. 🙂
