Back from another album writing weekend at @ya_yonder's barn in the hills.  It's such a calm and inspiring place to be.  There are lots of new and unexpected sounds happening and we're buzzing about it.  Can't wait to play you them.

We’re extremely pleased to announce that we’re performing at Green Man Festival 2014 in the Brecon Beacons.  Some of our absolute favs are on the lineup this year (Neutral Milk Hotel, Panda Bear, Caribou etc. etc. and so on and so forth) so we feel especially honoured and thrilled.  We play Sunday 17th August on the Rising Stage curated by Shape Records and we cannot wait.

We’re very happy to announce that we are to play this year’s A Carefully Planned Festival in October. The festival happens in Manchester and includes many, many, many top quality bands (including a few pals from Cardiff). We are looking forward to it immensely.

Weekend tickets are £10 (TEN POUNDS), which seems like some kind of admin error but isn’t.

Last weekend 4 / 6 of us went to a barn in Mid Wales and started writing songs for an album (our first one, a daunting and exhilarating thing).

We also did a little walk up a hill.  It was tremendous.

This weekend is WALES GOES POP! FESTIVAL in Cardiff which will also be tremendous.  We play at at 4.10pm on Sunday.  

Hope to see you there,

Our next concert is at Wales Goes Pop! 2014 which starts a week today. It is happening in The Gate, Cardiff which is a fine place to hold a festival.  We play on Sunday 20th and so do Withered Hand, Laetitia Sadier, Woodpigeon, Sweet Baboo, Haiku Salut, Tender Prey and more so it’s going to be ganz toll (that’s German for super-duper).
