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).
